Compare the fixed costs, variable cost, and performance of Bombardier Learjet 60 to over 500 jets, turboprops, helicopters and piston aircraft, with accurate data from Conklin & de Decker.
The Learjet 60 is a Learjet 55, with a 3.5 feet longer fuselage, Pratt & Whitney Canada PW305 engines, Collins Pro Line 4 avionics, and numerous other improvements.
The Learjet 55 was Learjet's entry into the medium-sized business jet field. In designing the 55, Learjet utilizes the earlier Longhorn 28/29 wing with winglets and marries it to a larger fuselage. The step-down aisle in the cabin has 5 foot 9 inches of headroom.
The Learjet 55B introduced a digital flight deck, modified wings, and an improved interior. The 55C comes equipped with delta fins that improve performance and handling.
The improved Learjet 60 first flew in June 1991 and deliveries started after certification in 1993.
