Bombardier Unveils New Learjets
The planes are called Learjet 70 and Learjet 75. The company says the new jets offer increased efficiency and comfort as well as lower operating costs.
Parts for the jets will start arriving in Wichita next month, with the fully assembled jets entering service in the first half of 2013.
“We’re very focused on quality of our product,” said Alan Young, Vice President Operations. “We’ve been building Learjets here for 50 years. The people are so proud of Learjet and what they do, and we’re just building on that.”
Bombardier already has firm orders, letters of intent and other commitments for more than 50 of the new aircraft.
