More about the Learjet 60
With a growing niche market demanding private jets that feature fast cruise speeds, high cruise levels, impressive climb performance, and economic performance, Bombardier Learjet announced the Learjet 60. This private business jet builds on the design of the Learjet 55, featuring a stretched fuselage and upgraded turbofan engines. The Learjet 60 first flew in October of 1990 and received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification in January of 1993.
Production on the Learjet 60 started in 1992 and ended in 2003. 270 aircraft have been built so far.
Key Features of the Learjet 60
The cabin of the Learjet 60 is typically arranged to accommodate six passengers, but can be configured to seat as many as ten. The cabin of the Learjet 60 measures 17.7 feet in length, reaches 5.7 feet in height and stretches a maximum of 5.9 feet in width with a floor width of 3.9 feet. This private business jet features 55 cubic feet of baggage storage capable of accommodating 650 pounds of luggage. With a maximum cabin pressure differential of 9.4 psi, the Learjet 60 is capable of maintaining a sea level cabin altitude at an altitude of 25,700 feet. Ten windows surround the cabin, allowing plenty of natural light for a comfortable environment.
Capabilities of the Learjet 60
The Learjet 60 comes equipped with two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW305A turbofan engines. Each engine is rated at 4,600 pounds of thrust at takeoff. The engines come standard with full authority digital engine control (FADEC) equipment, allowing maximum engine efficiency while reducing pilot workload. The Learjet 60 requires 5,450 feet of runway to take off at sea level on a standard day. At an airport with an altitude of 5,000 feet, this takeoff requirement increases to 8,520 feet of runway. With four passengers, this private business jet needs just 3,009 feet of runway to land. The Learjet 60 features a maximum certificated service ceiling of 51,000 feet and is capable of reaching an altitude of 37,000 feet in just 13 minutes. The Learjet 60 features an intercontinental range of 2,310 nautical miles, allowing a wide variety of destination options for your business venture. For a flight to a further destination, the Learjet 60 is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 422 knots at an altitude of 43,000 feet. If a swift flight is your focus, the Learjet 60 is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 453 knots at an altitude of 41,000 feet.
The avionics system selected for the Learjet 60 is the Integrated Pro Line 4 avionics suite. Four 7.25-inch by 7.25-inch display screens provide instrument information, with three of these screens functioning as primary flight displays (PFDs) and one serving as a multifunction display (MFD). Designed with human factors principles to be intuitive, flight controls are in close proximity to their corresponding instrumentation. Some of the avionics components integrated into this suite include an AlliedSignal dual Global GNS-XMS flight management system (FMS), a TWR-850 Doppler turbulence detection radar, a dual Pro Line II comm and nav radio system, and dual digital air computers.
