The Learjet 40 is a private jet that is mainly used for business purposes. If you need to charter a jet for a business meeting, retreat, conference, or any number of events, this is the perfect jet for you. It is manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace and was introduced in 2004.
The Learjet 40 can carry a maximum of 7 passengers and must have a crew of at least 2 on every flight. The cabin is the largest of its class with a length of 17.7 feet, width of 5.1 feet and a height of 4.9 feet. There is room to store 65 cubic feet of luggage. It can reach impressive speeds for a jet in its class getting up to .79 mach for long range cruising speed and if necessary can reach .81 mach. It can also fly for up to 2,248 miles without having to stop for fuel. This makes it very fuel efficient as well. No detail has been overlooked as far as performance and safety are concerned. Carbon brakes and wing spoilers ensure soft smooth landings and in case of a stall the vertical stabilizers have "delta spins" to increase stability and control.
The Learjet 40 is definitely at the top of its class. If you have a need to charter a light business jet this do not overlook this gem.
