Always at the forefront in aircraft development, Bombardier launches Learjet 85, an aircraft that represents a real breakthrough in speed, construction and efficiency. This is because it integrates technological innovations and a great design aesthetic, giving rise to a new flying experience.

The aerodynamic configuration of Learjet 85 was tested in wind and ice tunnels, using advanced techniques of fluid dynamics, through which the plane was proven to guarantee superior safety conditions to higher speeds with lower fuel consumption as well as reducing the amount of noise.

Both the fuselage and wings are made of carbon composite materials. This makes it the first business jet whose structure is based on these compounds, which will increase passenger comfort, reduce the thickness of the wall, maximizing the volume of the cabin and provide more freedom in the placement of windows, as well as the advantage of requiring much less maintenance than to existing aircraft.




In the other hand, the cockpit has the latest technology in navigation: integrates three 15-inch LCD high-resolution displays, the synthetic vision module, which allows a clearer observation of obstacles and the environment in general, a window system to ease specific operations for the pilot, and an advanced interface that optimizes piloting performance.

The interiors are much more spacious than other aircraft of its size, and provide an efficient distribution of the main cabin. It features LED illumination with specific parameters for work or relaxation, as well as comfortable reclining seats between which there is a space of 76 inches for more passenger comfort. Other features of the Learjet 85 include a large and fully equipped kitchen, an elegant bathroom with a flow of high pressure water and illuminated mirror, and an entertainment system that includes high-definition displays, DVD players and wireless Internet.

The performance of the Learjet 85 is not left behind. Its two PW370B engines from Pratt & Whitney are designed to give optimum performance and can propel the plane at a speed of Mach 0.82 (870.9 km / h), with a range of 3 thousand nautical miles (5,556 km).
