Learjet 85 Aircraft Mock-Up Tour Underway

Bombardier's Exclusive Fractional Launch Customer, Flexjet, Showcases New Aircraft Model At 11 Private Events

Flexjet and Bombardier are launching an 11-city U.S. tour offering the opportunity to experience firsthand the aircraft that the company says is poised to revolutionize the industry. Event partners Rolls-Royce, Chocolatier Emanuel Andren, Full Swing Golf and the Napa Valley Vintners will be onsite offering interactive experiences and expert tasting sessions for an unforgettable evening of style, luxury and performance.

Attendees are invited to take an exclusive tour of the Learjet 85 cabin mock-up—the first FAR Part 25 certified business jet built primarily from composite materials—and see first-hand the latest advances in aerodynamics, structures and efficiency that are ushering in a new benchmark in performance. Rolls-Royce’s Phantom and Ghost automobiles will be available for test-drives, while Full Swing Golf will offer guests the chance to play a World Championship golf course in one of its simulators. Famed chocolate artist Emanuel Andren will share his latest creations paired with the finest wines, courtesy of the Napa Valley Vintners. The tour is scheduled to visit Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Monterrey, CA, New York, Orlando, FL, Seattle, WA, and Washington, DC.

“Anticipation for the Learjet 85 jet has been building since the program launch back in 2007,” said Fred Reid, President, Flexjet. “With delivery scheduled for 2013, we are taking the Learjet 85 aircraft mock-up, and some of our finest partners, on the road so our owners can truly experience the world of possibilities that will open up to them with the Learjet 85’s aircraft class-leading innovations. Featuring the latest in cabin technologies, and the Vision Flight Deck cockpit, we are relishing the opportunity to brightly shine the spotlight on the Learjet 85 aircraft.”

Bombardier says the Learjet 85 airframe, made mostly of composite material, requires less maintenance and is easier to repair for an extended service life. Other innovations include the aircraft’s state-of-the-art Pratt & Whitney PW307B turbofan engine, the Vision Flight Deck cockpit featuring the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite—one of the most advanced suites ever offered onboard a midsize aircraft—and an advanced entertainment and wireless Internet system. The aircraft offers a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82 and a transcontinental range of up to 3,000 nm.
