Posted 15 August 2017 · Add Comment

Bombardier Business Aircraft has delivered its first Learjet 75 aircraft to a Brazilian customer.



The Learjet 75 joins Bombardier’s business jet fleet of 685 Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft in Latin America. 

“Learjet aircraft are iconic, rooted in deep pride and based on a history of ingenuity. We are proud a Brazilian customer selected the Learjet 75 for its class-leading performance, smooth ride and most private and quiet cabin,” said Stephane Leroy, Vice President, Sales, Latin America, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Learjet 75 aircraft is the only business jet in its class to feature a pocket door for reduced noise levels.”

Latin America is the third largest market for business aviation deliveries, with Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Venezuela making up over 80% of the regional fleet. There are currently over 510 Learjet aircraft in Latin America.

In 2016 Bombardier introduced the Learjet 75 aircraft featuring an innovative pocket door design. The pocket door divides the cabin from the entry area and reduces noise levels inside the cabin by up to eight decibels, while creating a distinct private living space for passengers.

In June 2017, Bombardier Business Aircraft celebrated a historic milestone in business aviation – the delivery of the 3,000th manufactured Bombardier Learjet. The aircraft was also the 100th Learjet 75 jet to be delivered.
