If you’ve ever flown on the popular Learjet 35, then the Learjet 45 from Bombardier Aerospace will feel like a luxury experience. With a roomier cabin and enhanced performance, this light jet will ensure your party makes it to its destination efficiently and in style. The Learjet 45 is also a master of non-stop flights, making it a great pick for short- and mid-range travelers across the US.
As soon as you step into the Learjet 45’s cabin, you’ll see why it is considered one of the roomiest in its class. With just under 500 cu. ft. of interior space, up to 8 passengers can easily get comfy while still carrying on up to 65 cu. ft. of luggage. Each seat in this cabin both swivels and reclines, too, so it is increasingly easy to rest or take advantage of the cabin’s double-club arrangements.
The Learjet 45 is also one of the premier light jets to take advantage of an interior two-zone system. This means that the cabin is separated effectively from the cockpit. This results in a quieter, more relaxed in-cabin environment. Should any of your party members need it, the Learjet 45 also features a spacious lavatory near the cockpit.

The Learjet 45 makes ample use of its AlliedSignal TFE731-20AR turbofan engines. In fact, their re-engineered design allows them to carry this craft at a whopping 535 mph while at a cruising altitude. This model’s fuel efficiency also allows it to travel 2,200 nautical miles on a single tank of fuel, thus allowing you to travel directly to your destination without any stop-overs.
At the same time, the Learjet 45 also features some exterior body improvements that keep it more stable during flight and touchdown. This includes smaller delta fins and one-piece flaps that maintain balance, even in turbulence.
