Bombardier’s midsize Learjet 60XR is the last iteration of the legacy of Learjet’s. This legacy derives from a long line of aircraft developed by Bill Lear in 1963, beginning with the original Lear 23. The 60XR rounds out Learjet’s generation of turbofan-powered aircraft. It is an improved version of the 60, boasting a more space-efficient interior. The redesigned model took its first flight in early 2006, and it remains a strong competitor in the medium-range business jet category. With such powerful engines, the Learjet excels in performance against competitors in its class. It can out-climb any mid-size jet, capable of a staggering 6,000 or greater feet per minute (FPM) climb. It can reach Mach 0.81 and is certified at a 51,000 feet flight ceiling. One might think that fuel efficiency would suffer when accommodating such high performance specifications, but the 60 Model surpasses in that category as well.
