Lear 55

Overview

The Lear family is one of the pioneers of private jet aviation. Learjet's have brought performance and innovation to the aviation market, starting with the original Lear 23 in 1963. Introduced in 1981, the Lear 55 incorporates successful elements of former Learjet's, while adding a few design modifications of its own like a larger fuselage. Although its predecessors were competitive, Lear essentially produced the 55 to contend in a growing business aircraft market, namely one with greater cabin accommodations. However, engineers made huge developments in cabin space and aerodynamic capabilities. The Lear 55 fixes its engines higher on the fuselage to decrease the amount of interference drag. Also, the vertical tail’s position, 20 percent higher, enhances directional stability. The Lear 55 can fly at a maximum operating speed of mach .81. It is capable of a high speed cruise of 458 knots, and a flight ceiling of 51,000 ft.
