The Learjet 75, Bombardierís newest addition to
its diverse business jet portfolio, is now in service.
The first delivery was to long-time Learjet
operator Alex Lyon & Son, an auctioneering firm that operates
throughout the United States and beyond.
ďOver the past 20 years, Learjet aircraft and
Bombardierís support teams have given me a 99.9% dispatch
reliability rate. And thanks to the speed of a Learjet, a late
departure doesnít prevent us from arriving on time, which has
helped me run my business more efficiently,Ē said Jack Lyon,
President and CEO of Alex Lyon & Son. ďWe appreciate the speed,
range and reliability of these aircraft, and weíre proud to become
the owners of the first Learjet 75 Liberty.Ē
The Learjet 75 Libertyís six-seat configuration
features an Executive Suite, where passengers can
stretch out thanks to the nearly three feet (89 centimetres) of
legroom. The jet is also available in an eight-seat configuration.
The Learjet 75 Liberty has a range of 2,080
nautical miles, able to connect Las Vegas to New York, Seattle to
Washington, D.C., and Mexico City to San Francisco, nonstop.
ďThe Learjet 75 Liberty is a value-added business
tool for those seeking a safer and more efficient travel option,Ē
said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing,
New Aircraft, Bombardier Business Aircraft. ďThis achievement
would not have been possible without our highly skilled team
members in Wichita, who are incredibly proud to be delivering the
best Learjet yet.Ē
