Bombardier’s Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 business aircraft granted certification by authorities in Mexico
Bombardier reported that the Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft have received full type certification from the Civil Aviation Authority of Mexico, the Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC). The aircraft have enhanced performance through an engine thrust increase with an improved Honeywell engine, offering superior takeoff field length performance over their predecessors. The new avionic system contributes to achieving weight savings and the new canted winglets improve aerodynamic efficiency. Overall, both aircraft provide up to a 9% improvement in field performance under hot and high conditions and up to a 4% improvement in fuel efficiency.
