More about the Learjet 45
Bombardier acquired Learjet in 1990 and at the US National Business Aircraft Association's annual convention in September of 1992, the corporation announced the development of the Learjet 45. The first flight of the Learjet 45 occurred on October 7, 1995, coinciding with the anniversary of the original Lear 23. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification followed in September of 1997, with the first delivery occurring in January of 1998. The Learjet 45 underwent several design modifications in its early life, to include single piece flaps, a larger rudder, and smaller delta fins. Amenities featured in the Learjet 45 include a galley and a full lavatory.
Production on the Learjet 45 started in 1998 and ended in 2005. 290 aircraft have been built so far.

Capabilities of the Learjet 45
The Learjet 45 comes equipped with two Honeywell TFE731-20AR turbofan engines. Each engine is rated at 3,500 pounds of thrust at takeoff. These engines operate with a fuel consumption rate of 198 gallons per hour, rendering the Learjet 45 an economic option. The Learjet 45 requires 4,350 feet of runway to take off at an airport with a sea level elevation on a standard day. At an airport with an elevation of 5,000 feet, this takeoff requirement increases to 7,290 feet of runway. This private business jet needs only 2,320 feet of runway to land. With four passengers, the range of the Learjet 45 reaches 1,824 nautical miles. For a swift flight, the Learjet 45 is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 456 knots at an altitude of 41,000 feet in a high-speed cruise configuration. To reach a further destination, the Learjet 45 is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 416 knots at an altitude of 47,000 feet in a long range cruise configuration.
The avionics system selected for the Learjet 45 is the Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite. Incorporated in this suite are four display screens. Two of these screens function as primary flight displays (PFDs) while the remaining two serve as multifunction displays (MFDs). The engines feature a full authority digital engine control (FADEC) system, allowing for maximum engine efficiency and performance while reducing pilot workload and operating costs.
