The Learjet 35 is one of the most flexible and cost-effective aircraft in its class. We are proud to offer it for your private jet charter. With 2,300 statute miles of range, short runway capability, best-in-class performance and a cruise speed of 510 mph, the Learjet 35 is a superb aircraft that can take off and land in most executive airports..
The Learjet 35 and Learjet 36 are stretched, turbofan powered developments of the initial Learjet models, the Learjet 23, Learjet 24 and Learjet 25. The definitive Learjet 35 prototype first flew on August 22 1973.
Aside from turbofans, the Learjet 35 and longer range Learjet 36 differ from the earlier Learjet 25 in having a 0.33m (1ft 1in) fuselage stretch and five windows (instead of four) on the right side of the fuselage. The Learjet 35 has seating for up to eight, but has less fuel than the longer range than the LearJet 36, which can only seat up to six, as both types share the same maximum takeoff weight. The Learjet 35 and the Learjet 36 were certificatified in July 1974.
Improvements to the two models led to the Learjet 35A and Learjet 36A from 1976, with higher standard max takeoff weights. Both models remained in production until 1994.
Development of the Learjet 35 and Learjet 36 range was taken one step further with the Learjet 31, which combines the Learjet 35/Learjet 36's fuselage and powerplants with the more modern wing of the 55 (now also on the 60) and delta fins under the tail. A Learjet 31 development aircraft first flew in May 1987 and certification was awarded in August 1988.
The improved Learjet 31A and Learjet 31A/ER are later production models, the Learjet 31A/ER being an extended range variant with a higher maximum takeoff weight and more fuel. A new interior with increased headroom was introduced in 1995. The 200th 31A was delivered in October 2000. Learjet became a Bombardier subsidiary in 1990.
