As part of its continuing commitment to the legendary Learjet
product line, Bombardier is pleased to announce that the U.S.
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has certified the latest
update to the popular Garmin G5000 avionics suite aboard Learjet
The upgrade will be incorporated on new Learjet
aircraft deliveries. In a few months’ time, the new Garmin G5000
avionics suite will also be a standard feature on Bombardier’s
newest Learjet, the Learjet 75 Liberty, which is expected to enter
service in mid-2020. A retrofit for in-service Learjet 70 and
Learjet 75 aircraft will be available in early 2020.
“The latest Garmin G5000 avionics suite is one
of many reasons to love Learjet,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice
President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business
Aircraft. “With a steady stream of acclaimed enhancements and the
upcoming entry-into-service of the new Learjet 75 Liberty,
Bombardier is making the world’s best light jet an irresistible
choice for more operators than ever before.”
“The Learjet is an iconic symbol that is known
for its performance and efficiency, and the ever-popular Garmin
G5000 integrated flight deck further enhances this platform with
modern features such as wireless connectivity, FANS 1/A+ and
more*,” said Carl Wolf, Vice President, Aviation Sales and
Marketing, Garmin. “We’re thrilled to work alongside
Bombardier to deliver a state-of-the-art avionics suite with an
advanced feature set that reduces pilot workload, improves
situational awareness and gives pilots a superior in-flight
Bombardier’s recent enhancements to the beloved
Learjet are popular with operators and include a standard pocket
door for the quietest flight as well as extended maintenance
intervals that drive down operating costs. The spacious new Learjet
75 Liberty, which further demonstrates Bombardier’s commitment to
Learjet, is getting strong interest on the market. A full-size
interior mock-up of this value-added business jet has already made
several appearances to overwhelmingly positive reviews.
The new Garmin G5000 avionics suite will bring
workload-reducing improvements, including climb, cruise and descent
vertical navigation, enhanced take-off and landing performance
calculations and much more. FANS 1/A+, which enables access to the
most efficient and favourable routes, will be offered as an option.
It will ensure readiness for modernized airspace requirements and
deliver efficiency gains that are expected to lower direct
operating costs. Pilots will also benefit from a vast array of
wireless connectivity features, including two-way flight plan
transfers between compatible apps and avionics, available thanks to
Garmin’s Flight Stream 510 solution.
The Learjet 75 Liberty has the same operating
costs as its competitors in the light jet category while offering
the most spacious cabin, the fastest speed, the longest range and
the smoothest ride. It is also a step up from other light jets in
terms of safety standards, certified to the FAA’s more stringent
Part 25 regulations, applicable to commercial airliners, unlike
other light jets certified to Part 23 regulations.
The six-seat configuration aboard the Learjet 75
Liberty gives light jet passengers unprecedented freedom to stretch
out. A standard pocket door between the cockpit and the Executive
Suite delivers a quiet flight, while retractable side tables and
stowable ottomans ensure productivity and comfort.
The Learjet 75 Liberty has a range of 2,080
nautical miles, able to connect Las Vegas to New York, Seattle to
Washington, D.C., and Mexico City to San Francisco, nonstop.**
