Bombardier Aerospace announced today that the cabin mock-up of the new Learjet 75 aircraft will make its Mexican debut in Toluca, Mexico from April 18-27, 2013.
Launched in May 2012, alongside the new Learjet 70 aircraft, the Learjet 75 aircraft is due to enter service later this year and builds on legendary Learjet strengths and successes while leveraging certain Learjet 85 aircraft technology. The Learjet 75 aircraft mock-up will be on display during the 10th edition of Aero Expo in Toluca, Mexico, from April 18-20, 2013, and for an extended display period in Toluca at Assertec’s hangar facilities from April 20-27, 2013.
“The Learjet 75 aircraft represents the combination of Learjet heritage, technology and design innovations Bombardier is known for,” said Saul Arceo, Sales Director, Mexico and Central America, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Learjet is already a leader in Mexico and this new aircraft, featuring the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck, a new interior and superior performance, will take its leadership even further. Bombardier, with the broadest product portfolio in the industry, is committed to offering Mexican customers the best product to fulfill their travel needs.”
The aircraft will have enhanced performance through an engine thrust increase with an improved Honeywell engine, offering improved takeoff field length performance over its predecessor. The new systems will also contribute to weight savings gain and the new canted winglets will improve aerodynamic efficiency. Overall, up to a nine per cent improvement in field performance under hot and high conditions* and up to a four per cent improvement in fuel efficiency are expected.
Based on the Learjet 85 aircraft interior design and technology, the Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft include: improved comfort and styling of the seats; cabin management system featuring individual touchscreen monitors with full audio and video control; LED lighting throughout the entire aircraft; a generous baggage suite and a spacious galley for optimized catering; work and storage space. The advanced connectivity options of the Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft will ensure the highest levels of convenience.
