Other than the sky, discerning travelers will experience few limits aboard the Bombardier Learjet 75 and Challenger 350 business jets. Though both jets are rated in different classes, each can bypass common weather delays, turbulence, and technological limitations with a full suite of custom aviation solutions.

Artisan-designed interiors can be customized, melding flawlessly with functionality for long- and short-range travel. The Learjet 75 aircraft is ideal for traveling shorter transcontinental distances (i.e., Los Angeles to Denver or Chicago), carrying passengers in a double-club cabin configuration with 16 windows and swiveling, reclining seats with integrated storage.

Advanced aerodynamics and powerful yet lightweight Honeywell TFE731-40BR engines make the Learjet 75 aircraft a very efficient machine. With a long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.75 and nonstop range of 2,040 nautical miles (under certain operating conditions), the jet performs well in hot and high fields, which offers greater access to a variety of airfields. Real-time communication, high-resolution displays, and touch-screen controllers offer pilots graphical flight planning and custom flight control. The jet also features automatic cabin temperature control and independent fuel systems located in each wing that connect to respective engines.

The Challenger 350 aircraft offers a new interior design with flat floor, stand-up cabin height, and Lufthansa Technik’s advanced nice® HD cabin management system that allows passengers to focus on business at hand.

With lowest-in-class direct operating costs, the Challenger 350 aircraft offers new range capability of 3,200 nautical miles (under certain operating conditions) and access to a wider range of destinations, making it ideal for coast-to-coast excursions. Honeywell HTF7350 turbofans reach a high speed cruise of Mach 0.82. A faster climb time and newly designed winglets offer efficient travel, while advanced avionics offers pilots added navigation flexibility and enhanced situational awareness.

While owning one of these aircraft outright would be a natural preference, fractional ownership is also a viable – and cost-effective – option. NetJets and Vistajet have partnered with Bombardier and both have the Challenger 350 aircraft in their respective fleets. Meanwhile, Flexjet has partnered with Bombardier on the Challenger 350 LXi and Learjet 75 LXi aircraft to offer a full suite of customizations tailored to each aircraft.
