Learjet 55

The Lear family is one of the pioneers of private jet aviation. Learjets have brought performance and innovation to the aviation market, starting with the original Lear 23 in 1963. Introduced in 1981, the Lear 55 incorporates successful elements of former Learjets, while adding a few design modifications of its own like a larger fuselage. Although its predecessors were competitive, Lear essentially produced the 55 to contend in a growing business aircraft market, namely one with greater cabin accommodations.

The midsize cabin aircraft is the perfect combination of the 30-series’ turbofan engines and the 20-series’ “Longhorn” wing.  Lear began replacing turbojet engines with turbofans starting with the Lear 35 in 1974. A pair of TFE 731-3A-2B engines powers the Lear 55, providing 3,700 lbs of thrust apiece. Inspection interval is 4,200 hours. Adapted from the 28 and 29 Longhorn models, the Lear 55 features an increased wingspan and drag-reducing winglets using higher strength aluminum.
