Lear Jet series aircraft for sale (1744 words)
For many people, the name Learjet is a generic term to cover any and all business jets, largely due to the public relations skill of Bill Lear, and James R. Greenwood, who successfully headed the company's public relations department for many years.
Learjets latest aircraft is the completely new Model 45, which was announced in September 1992, falling between the Model 31 and the Model 60, and features a new wing and a larger fuselage than the Model 31.
Learjets have been delivered to a number of governmental operators and have been used for target towing, high altitude mapping and photography.
