Neuer Geschäftsreisejet angekündigt<br /> Bombardier Aerospace launched its all-new Learjet aircraft, provisionally named Learjet NXT.
"I am extremely pleased to announce the launch of the Learjet NXT - an aircraft that is set to redefine the midsize jet category and set the standard against which all competitive aircraft will be measured," said Pierre Beaudoin, president and chief operating officer, Bombardier Aerospace. True to its legendary heritage, the next Learjet aircraft is set to deliver the extraordinary performance Learjet aircraft owners expect. Targeting a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82,
the clean-sheet Learjet aircraft will offer its passengers a transcontinental range of up to 3,000 nautical miles (5,556 km). Designed to provide a larger, more comfortable cabin than any existing midsize aircraft, this jet will offer eight passengers a stand-up cabin built to ensure superior productivity and comfort. To date, initial market interest in this next generation offering is strong, as Bombardier has received in excess of 65 letters of intent for this aircraft, which are expected to successfully converted into firm orders over the coming months.
