More about the Learjet 40
The Bombardier Corporation designed the Learjet 40 to address evolving market requirements that surpassed the capabilities of its predecessor, the Learjet 31A. The Learjet 40 received certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in July of 2003, with first customer deliveries in January of 2004. The Learjet 40 features design upgrades such as the largest cabin in its class with a full galley, a spacious lavatory, state-of-the-art flight deck, and economical engines. With these features and its design, the Learjet 40 is capable of flying long distances and offers a comfortable cabin for passengers.
Key Features of the Learjet 40
The cabin of the Learjet 40 is set to accommodate six passengers, though a seventh passenger may be seated in the lavatory, which is equipped with a belt for this purpose. The cabin of the Learjet 40 measures 17.7 feet in length, reaches 4.9 feet in height, and stretches 5.1 feet in width, allowing for a cabin volume of 368 cubic feet. This private business jet features 50 cubic feet of baggage storage capable of accommodating 500 pounds of luggage. With a maximum cabin pressure differential of 9.4 psi, the Learjet 40 is capable of maintaining a sea level cabin altitude at an altitude of 25,700 feet and is capable of providing a maximum cabin altitude of 8,000 feet at its maximum certificated service ceiling of 51,000 feet.
Capabilities of the Learjet 40
The Learjet 40 comes equipped with two Honeywell TFE731-20AR-1B engines. These engines are rated at 3,500 pounds of thrust each, and perform with a consumption rate of 199 gallons per hour, rendering the Learjet 40 an efficient, economical option. The Learjet 40 requires 4,330 feet of runway to take off at sea level on a standard day, a performance specification it can maintain at its maximum takeoff weight. At an airport with an elevation of 5,000 feet, this takeoff requirement increases to 7,130 feet of runway. This private business jet needs only 2,324 feet of runway to land. The Learjet 40 features a range of 1,616 nautical miles with four passengers and a maximum range of 1,824 nautical miles. The Learjet 40 features a long range cruise speed of 428 knots and a high-speed cruise speed of 457 knots.
Carbon brakes and wing spoilers provide for smoother landings while delta fins on the vertical stabilizer provide better stabilization characteristics.
The avionics system selected for the Learjet 40 is the Honeywell Primus 1000 integrated avionics suite. Incorporated in this system are four eight-inch by seven-inch electronic flight instrument system (EFIS) screens which are also capable of displaying engine instrument and crew alerting system (EICAS) messages. The flight deck was designed to reduce pilot workload, with each system logically placed, easy to access, and easy to use. Instrumentation integrated into this suite include a Honeywell Primus 660 weather radar, EGPWS with wind shear alert capabilities, Universal Avionics UNS1E FMS, TCAS 2000, and dual Primus II navigation and communication systems.
