Jet Flight Charters on Lear 55 – History and Highlights

There exists perhaps no sleeker, more stylish private business jet than the Lear and the Lear 55 is one of the finer additions to this family. Charter Flight Group has been providing Lear Jets to private charter business travelers for more than 30 years to destinations globally. The Lear 55 began as a concept by Bombardier announced in 1977 to build a private business jet with larger cabins than then existed. In developing the 50 series, the company utilized winglets developed by NASA which gave rise to the nickname, the Longhorn. In early 1978, construction was started on the Lear 55 after final testing of the wing design commenced and the first jet took flight a year later with the first production model delivered in 1981.
The Lear 55 was designed to be a mid-size luxury business jet with good cabin space, an enclosed, belted lavatory, great climb rate, cruise speed, and range. The designers accomplished all their goals and the resulting business jet provides many private travelers with excellent service to this day. In addition, the aircraft was designed to meet increased demands for variable performance capabilities so numerous variations were built to accommodate these. When booking your private charter on the Lear 55, be sure to discuss such options with your private charter planner.

Lear 55 Specifications

Some of the notable specifications of the Lear 55 mid-size luxury jet include the two rear-mounted Garrett TFE731 turbofans which provide 3700 pounds of thrust each. This allows this private charter jet to take flight and reach cruising altitude with considerable speed. Indeed, the climb rate for this beauty is 4059 feet per minute, which is rivaled only by fighter jets. This makes the Learjet 55 the epitome of what Lear set out to accomplish in the early 1960s with the first Learjet modeled loosely on the aborted Swiss P-16 fighter. It is a sleek, sexy, and fast private business jet. Because numerous variations are available on this aircraft, this is one of the more versatile private jets one may charter from Charter Flight Group. This also makes this private business jet very appealing for many flights for one may travel easily from Los Angeles or San Francisco to Chicago or Memphis non-stop while bringing considerable cargo and speed into the equation.
