Here’s Why the Learjet 75 Liberty is a Heavyweight in the Light Jet Segment

Learjet has long been one of the most reputable and on-demand names for light private aircraft. The Learjet 75, originally released in 2013, has commanded significant market share over the past few years. Now, the next iteration of this popular jet is soon to take the skies: the Learjet 75 Liberty. Not only is it expected to meet the lofty precedent set by its forerunners, it’s also set to disrupt the entire light jet segment in the way only a Learjet can.

A storied past

Ask anyone remotely familiar with the world of private aircraft, and you’ll inevitably hear them refer to Learjet with a sense of awe in their voice. First established in 1962 by developer William Powell Lear, the company immediately turned the world of light aircraft on its head with the Learjet 23. The state-of-the-art private jet was gorgeous, fast, and even cost-effective.

Over the decades, the technicians at Learjet, and their eventual parent company Bombardier, have continued to redefine what’s possible in flight, from the cockpit to the belly. Even as the market has continued to see more impressive competition year after year, Learjet has retained its place of honor. With the release of the Learjet 75, the venerable plane designer is poised to further entrench its position at the front of the field.

Introducing the 75 Liberty

The Learjet 75 Liberty is built on the bones of Learjet’s previous 75 model; however, the Liberty has been redesigned from the ground up to improve the flight experience. If anything, the “Liberty” title refers to the extraordinary amount of space onboard.

At 19 feet long, the Learjet 75 is two feet longer than the competition. Learjet has made the most of the extra space by introducing its two-seat Executive Suite, a sealed-off area between the cockpit and main lounge. Two individual chairs offer three feet of legroom and matching fold-out tables. It’s a perfect space for executives on the go.

The Learjet 75 Liberty has opted to remove some of the seating, cutting the available number down to 6 (two in the Executive Suite and four in the main cabin). It’s also removed bulky items like auxiliary power and a lavatory sink (both of which can be re-added as options).

Best of all, the Learjet 75 Liberty has one of the fastest top speeds in its class at Mach .81. What’s more, even the most notable competition can’t compete with the Liberty’s superior range of more than 2,000 nautical miles.

Making revolutionary waves

As it prepares to enter the market, the Learjet 75 Liberty is poised as something of an oddity. That is, while it’s classified as a light jet, the enormous range and immense space make the Liberty seem almost more like a mid-size aircraft. Add to that the Liberty’s extremely appealing $10 million price tag, and it would seem as though one of the most revered designers in the aviation industry is ready to retake the throne. The Learjet 75 Liberty releases later this year, with much anticipation behind it.

Will Bombardier Sell its BizAv Unit in 2020? Not So Fast.

With the likes of its Learjet, Challenger, and Global business jet lines, Bombardier is one of the top players in BizAv. Bombardier has been a staple manufacturer for more than 50 years, which is why recent rumors of its potential exit from the industry were so shocking. But Bombardier silenced those rumors by announcing a strategic shift to focus on business aviation and accelerate efforts to sell its rail business to reduce its debt burden. What does this mean for Bombardier long term?

A new chapter

It’s no secret that Bombardier has been struggling. The company is well over $9 billion in debt, and their stock has fallen 32% in 2020 alone. Sources indicate that the transportation company considered selling off both rail and business aviation assets.

A news release from the company on Jan. 19 stated, “We are actively pursuing alternatives that would allow us to accelerate our debt paydown. The objective is to position the business for long-term success with greater operating and financial flexibility.”

In recent news, however, Bombardier announced a strategic shift toward its business aviation sector with a proposed sale of its rail business, marking a new chapter and a path forward for the company.

Bombardier President and CEO Alain Bellemare has been quoted saying, “Going forward, we will focus all our capital, energy, and resources on accelerating growth and driving margin expansion in our market-leading $7 billion business aircraft franchise. With a stronger balance sheet after the completion of this transaction, an industry-leading portfolio of products, a strong backlog, and a rapidly growing after market business, we will compete in this market from a position of strength.”

The business jet aviation market is poised for growth. Recent forecasts suggest the market will grow from an estimated $24.7 billion in 2019 to $36.4 billion by 2030, which could mean a significant strategic win for Bombardier.

Proposed sale of rail business to Alstom

Bombardier’s proposed sale of the rail business to Alstom, a French multinational company, operating in rail markets worldwide, would mean a significant financial upswing for Bombardier that could help the company address its debt paydown imperative. In fact, the sale would generate an estimated net proceeds of $4.2 billion to $4.5 billion, including $550 million in Alstom shares. The deal is set to close in the first half of 2021, assuming it is able to gain final stakeholder and regulatory approvals.

Bombardier Introduces New Global 5500, 6500, and 7500

Bombardier has long been a leader in the private aircraft industry. For 50 years, the company has offered elite and innovative designs, ultimately creating one of the most comprehensive fleets in the industry. 2018 appears to be no different. In fact, Bombardier is celebrating the introduction of its three newest members: The Global 5500, 6500, and 7500. Each brings with it exclusive luxuries and top-notch technology.

Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect with each new jet.

  • Global 5500 — As the company announced in late spring of this year, Bombardier anticipates the Global 5500 to enter service in late 2019. Featuring brand-new Rolls-Royce Pearl engines, the jet boasts top-notch fuel efficiency and, in turn, a reduced environmental footprint. Promising to continue the Global’s reputation for a smooth ride and long range, the 5500 features the next-generation Global wings and has a range of up to 5,700 nautical miles, up from the 5,200-nautical–mile range of the Global 5000. The Vision Flight Deck boasts the first business aviation application of a combined vision system, integrating infrared and synthetic vision. As for the passenger experience, Bombardier has integrated cutting-edge technology, including the first 4K-enabled cabin and Ka-band technology, connecting passengers fast and keeping them in touch no matter where they are.

  • Global 6500 — Similar to the 5500 in many respects, the Global 6500 promises many of the features you would expect from a Global jet, including the same patented Nuage seats and 100% fresh air as the Global 5500. Additionally, the 6500 will also boast an increased range, with a reach of 6,600 nautical miles. It will have the ability to connect London to Hong Kong and is the farthest-reaching jet in its class. In addition to sharing the new safety, comfort, and efficiency technology of the 5500, the Global 6500 includes many added comforts. The new jet will have the widest cabin in its class, offer the first en-suite standing shower, and come fully equipped with new cabinets and appliances in the deluxe kitchen.

  • Global 7500 — Unlike the 5500 and 6500, which should enter into service in the latter part of 2019, the Global 7500 is making its way into the market this year. The largest and longest-range in the world, this model is a rebranding of the 7000, which debuted in November 2016. Bombardier announced this change after the jet’s flight tests revealed an unprecedented range of 8,861 miles, according to the Robb Report article. The 7500 will be the first jet with Bombardier’s much-anticipated Nuage seats and comes in a variety of floor plans and features four separate living spaces. Bombardier plans to begin delivery of the 7500s later this year, following FAA certification, and the Bombardier completion center in Montreal received delivery of the first customer-owned 7500 in June.

Bombardier has always been a reliable provider of cutting-edge private and business jets, and this year’s additions are no different. If you are in the market, these new aircraft models promise to be tops of their classes, and your options don’t end there. Bombardier jets include excellent options for every traveler and, with their history of quality, if you can’t wait for the release of these newest models, a preowned Bombardier could be a strong option for your next business or private jet.

A stalwart in the industry for more than 50 years, Bombardier Business Aircraft has one of the most comprehensive lines of jets in the industry. Its three aircraft families — Learjet, Challenger, and Global — can address the needs of customers as their travel requirements change along with their businesses. With a good start to the year and the anticipated delivery of the Global 7000 following shortly, 2018 looks to be an exciting year for Bombardier.

A good start

If the rest of 2018 is like the first quarter, business aviation insiders can expect Bombardier to have a banner year. First-quarter revenues reached $1.11 billion, a 9% increase year-over-year, and deliveries were up two jets at 31. Bombardier projects 135 deliveries in 2018, and the first deliveries of its Global 7000, sold out through 2021, will add to its already-large portfolio. The timing couldn’t be better as analysts expect the business aviation industry to continue its long-awaited turnaround.

The Bombardier family

The Challenger 350 was among the best-selling business jets in the first quarter of 2018. In addition, it was the top-selling business jet in 2017, according to General Aviation Manufacturers Association data, with 56 deliveries. In the first quarter of this year, Bombardier delivered 12 of the super-midsize jets. The Challenger 350’s popularity is a testament to the exceptional flight experience its roomy cabin, advanced cabin management system, in-flight luggage compartment access, as well as excellent connectivity and communications solutions provide. The aircraft has a range of 3,200 nautical miles, is NextGen-ready, and has the lowest operating costs in its class.

Bombardier’s flagship Global 5000 and 6000 were also top sellers with 10 deliveries combined in the first quarter of 2018. The Global series of large-cabin ultra-long-range jets is known for its comfort and style while providing the latest in business productivity tools and technologies. The Global 5000 seats up to 16 passengers and has a 5,200-nautical-mile range; the Global 6000 seats up to 17 and has a range of 6,000 nautical miles.

Global 7000: The next great business jet

The Global Series will soon have another aircraft in its lineup: the Global 7000. The 7000 made its debut flight in November 2016, and the five flight test aircraft in the fleet have since accrued more than 1,800 flight hours. Certification is expected later this year with the first delivery shortly thereafter, making the 7000 Bombardier’s flagship business jet. It has a range of 7,400 nautical miles and can see speeds up to Mach 0.925; however, as its flight tests have shown, it has the capability to hit the 7,700-nautical-mile mark at Mach 0.85, positioning it to claim the long-range business jet title and opening up “city pairs such as New York to Hong Kong and Singapore to San Francisco,” according to the BJT article.

Whether you’re looking to buy a quality preowned Challenger or are in the market for state-of-the-art technology and comfort in the new Global 7000, you shouldn’t undertake the process of finding and financing a new aircraft on your own.

There’s a lot going on in the private and business aviation industry: Many soon-to-be-released luxury jets are about to enter the market, pre-owned jet prices are stabilizing, and the ADS-B mandate deadline looms. Here’s an overview of what’s happening and what it means for those trying to decide whether to purchase new aircraft, go with pre-owned models, or upgrade their current jets.

New models

Quite a lot of buzz surrounds new luxury jet models coming soon to market. Here’s a taste of what’s on the horizon for those looking to purchase a new high-end aircraft:

Boeing 787 Dreamliner – Source: Boeing
  • Boeing 787 Dreamliner — If you demand nothing less than the height of luxury, the VVIP Dreamliner might be the next jet for you. With the ability to fly nonstop for more than 17 hours, this model provides flyers plenty of time to enjoy its more than 2,400 square feet of cabin space with heated marble floors, a king-size bed, walk-in closet, and full-size shower. If you want to test it out before buying, you can charter this penthouse in the sky for you and 39 of your closest friends for a mere $70,000 per hour.

    Embraer Legacy 500 – Source: Flyingmag.com
  • Embraer Legacy 500 and 450 — Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer’s Legacy 500 and its slightly shorter sister, the Legacy 450, are some of the fastest jets in the midsize and “mid light” aircraft categories, delivering a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.79 to 0.82, respectively. They are some of only under-$50 million jets that feature full fly-by-wire flight controls. The Legacy 450, with a range of 1,300 nautical miles (nm), has a cabin four feet shorter than the 500, which has a 3,000-nautical-mile range. Both feature superb passenger comfort, low turbulence, and low noise levels.

    Gulfstream G500 – Source: Wikipedia
  • Gulfstream G500 — Gulfstream’s long-range, large-cabin business jet is scheduled to enter into service in 2019. Its Pratt & Whitney Canada PW814GA engines reduce fuel consumption as well as cut emissions and noise. It sports 27-inch-wide seats with footrests for extra comfortable rides for as many as 19 passengers and includes a large, fully equipped galley. The G500 has a range of 5,200 nm and offers a state-of-the-art Wi-Fi and entertainment system as well as full digital fly-by-wire flight controls.

    Pilatus PC-24 – Source: Wikipedia
  • Pilatus PC-24 — The PC-24 super versatile jet is the first business jet from Swiss manufacturer Pilatus Aircraft. The 10-passenger aircraft, for which deliveries began in January 2018, has a list price of just under $9 million. Its large aft door can handle standard cargo pallets, it flies as fast as 440 knots, and the PC-24 can fly six passengers 1,800 nm. Buyers can even choose among seven cabin layouts for this area that offer more overall space than its more expensive competitors. In addition, the light jet can use grass, gravel, or dirt runways as well as runways less than 2,700 feet, according to the Barron’s article.

Changes in the pre-owned market

Buyers who are not ready to go all-in on a new jet might want to take a look at the pre-owned market while they still can. Although the pre-owned Gulfstream market has been struggling over the past several years, according to an AINOnline article, an increase in pre-owned sales, decreasing inventories, and stabilizing prices have contributed to its ongoing recovery. For example, less than 4% of Gulfstream G650 and G550 fleets are for sale, which is extremely low compared to recent years.

Inventories for older Gulfstream models, however, such as the GIV-SP and G-V, are still high. In addition, values for the G550, which had been dropping nearly 20% per year for three years, have leveled off. Plus, new tax rules that allow for 100% depreciation during the first year for both new and pre-owned jets will likely boost sales in both categories in the coming year.

For those who plan to acquire a pre-owned aircraft, keep in mind the ADS-B mandate, which requires all aircraft be updated by January 2020. ADS-B Out equipment can be expensive, and slots for performing the upgrades are filling up fast. You don’t want your pre-owned new-to-you jet to lose its value or end up in the scrap heap because of your failure to comply.

Buying a jet, whether the latest model or a pre-owned model, can be a daunting, time-consuming process. To make the best of your next jet purchase, seek out an expert who understands the markets and can help you get the aircraft for your needs at the right price.

bombardierBombardier has recently reported double milestones for its Challenger business jet series. Bombardier introduced the super-midsize Challenger 350 into service in June 2014 and has now hit 200-plus deliveries, making the Challenger 300 series the most-delivered business jet series within the past 10 years. In addition, the company’s large-cabin 650 model first released in 2015 surpassed 50 deliveries, making it the best-selling large jet of its category in history, according to Bombardier, with more than 1,100 Challenger 600 models delivered.

These milestones are a tribute to the newest Challenger models’ unequaled capabilities, according to Bombardier Business Aircraft Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Peter Likoray. According to the AIN Online article, he said, “No competitor comes close to the comfort and connectivity of the Challenger’s cabin, nor to their class-leading economics and dependable performance in operation.”

The Challengers

The Challenger 350 boasts a range of 3,200 nautical miles. It is NextGen-ready with a well-equipped cockpit, plus its direct operating costs are the lowest and connectivity is the best of any jet in its category. The 650 model also offers the lowest direct operating costs for a large aircraft. It offers a 4,000 nautical mile range, Ka-band connectivity, and larger seats along with the ability for passengers to move around the cabin freely. Both aircraft are at the top of their classes in performance and comfort, and either is a winning choice depending on your needs and desires.

Pre-owned options

If you’re thinking of acquiring a pre-owned Challenger, several models are available.

Challenger 605 — This is the fifth jet Bombardier released in the 600 series. It seats eight with a range of up to 4,000 nautical miles. Upon its release, no other business jet of its size offered a better mix of cost-effectiveness and comfort. It provides unparalleled dispatch reliability and everyday utility. It is more space-efficient than the earlier 604 model with more cabin area for passengers. The Challenger series has captured a lot of operator loyalty: They cite its cabin comfort, range, and low operating cost as reasons for purchasing — and keeping — their Challengers.

Challenger 300 — Much like the Challenger 350, this super-midsize jet in the 300 series offers the comfort and spaciousness typically found only in large-cabin jets. It has superior runway performance and a range of 3,000 nautical miles. The 300 seats eight to nine passengers, depending on cabin configuration, and offers a heated baggage compartment accessible from the cabin. It provides similar comfort to Bombardier’s Gulfstream 550 — at only 65% of the G550’s operating costs.

Challenger 604 — Like the Challenger 350 and 605 models, the 604 model has a range of up to 4,000 nautical miles. In addition, its maximum cruise speed is Mach 0.82, and it offered the widest cabin of any business jet upon release. Its overall comfort, performance, dependability, and value make it the best-selling jet in its class.

There are many reasons why Challenger 300 and 600 series business jets are so popular with those in the private and business aviation industry. Whether you buy new or go with a proven pre-owned model, these jets promise to deliver.

Global 7000
Source: bombardier.com

If you attended the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas in October, perhaps you were among the first to lay eyes on Bombardier’s newest prototype private jet: the Global 7000. Having debuted at the event, the Global 7000 is the ultimate in performance and comfort as evidenced by its $72.8 million price tag.

What’s new in the Global 7000?

The Canadian company’s much anticipated release is the most recent iteration of its flagship model — the Global 5000. At 111 feet, it’s Bombardier’s largest private jet to date. The Global 7000 has a range of more than 8,500 miles, allowing nonstop flights between major cities like New York and Dubai. It can reach speeds of Mach 0.925 and provides the performance and maneuverability of a much smaller jet.

The Global 7000’s full-glass cockpit is spacious and comfortable, and the wings provide exceptionally smooth flights. It has a state-of-the-art Vision flight deck, advanced navigation, weather radar including windshear detection, and cutting-edge fly-by-wire technology. The jet seats up to 19 and the cabin configuration is fully customizable with four living spaces and a crew rest area, nearly infinite furnishing options, advanced air control and pressurization systems, personalized options for dining, entertainment and business spaces, and fast in-flight connectivity options.

Bombardier to focus on private aviation

Coinciding with final Global 7000 development plans is Bombardier’s announcement that it is giving up control of its C Series commercial aircraft program to Airbus. The program has been struggling and has been among the lowest-performing Bombardier divisions. The shift will allow the company to put more focus on its more profitable private jet programs, and the release of the Global 7000 will further emphasize the manufacturing firm’s focus on the private jet market.

The current test vehicle has a complete interior which Bombardier is using to test the passenger experience. The final test vehicle is under production, and final models are expected to enter into service in the second half of 2018. The bad news for those interested in purchasing: The Global 7000 is sold-out through 2021. For those who don’t want to wait, the next best thing could very well be a preowned Global 6000.

Bombardier Global 6000 - long range comfortBombardier’s third-generation globetrotter, the Global 6000, wins high marks from Aviation Week’s Fred George, who says it’s a “fast, comfortable, reliable” aircraft. While other long-range aircraft may fly farther, the Global 6000 wins on passenger comfort with the largest cabin volume of any business jet.

According to Flying magazine, the Global 6000 is a beautiful and capable machine that delivers on the promise of long range and makes shopping for a business jet easy. Author Robert Goyer says, “The range of the machine is part of its name. The Global 6000, for example, has an IFR range of 6,000 nm, which is enough to, well, take you to some spectacular places.”

Long-range aircraft like the Global 6000 can fly between business-critical cities such as London and Mumbai. Offering passengers the comforts of home, the Global 6000 can make such trips while also granting a restful night’s sleep and a morning shower.

Highlights of the Global 6000

  • A flight deck gives pilots unprecedented levels of control — based on the award-winning Rockwell Collins Fusion flight deck, one of the most advanced avionics systems in the world — and comfort with leather seats, multi-zone environmental control, and a comfy spot for the relief pilot.
  • An impressive range of over 6,000 nautical miles is supported by a BMW Rolls-Royce BR710 engine that delivers 15,000 pounds of thrust and unprecedented fuel efficiency.
  • The sleek and elegant cabin is comfortable on longer hauls and sports three environmental zones, a private stateroom with lavatory and shower, Blu-ray entertainment, high-speed internet, and more.

Bombardier’s 15 years and three generations of Global jets that have earned the company a high level of customer loyalty.

Bombardier Challenger 604Bombardier started delivering the Challenger 604 in 1996, according to an AOPA article. The company’s aerospace engineers created a fleet of over 350 aircraft over the next decade, according to a Business Jet Traveler article. True to the comfort and luxury inherent in the 600 series, the Challenger 604 is respected for its big cabin, considered the wide body of business jets, and for bringing a new level of spaciousness to the market.

The Challenger 604 boasts ample interior volume and generous stand-up height. According to the AOPA article, this model is ideal for long flights due to its opulent interior, which includes:

  • Extra-wide, reclining executive seats
  • Entertainment systems
  • Oversized galley
  • Deluxe lavatory
  • Low interior noise levels

The cabin comfortably seats 10-12 passengers and has a maximum capacity of 19. The interior space can be configured as a double club or forward club/half club and divan arrangement for the ultimate in flexibility. Altering the seating styles with couches and other furniture changes is relatively simple, which allows for extraordinary refurbishment options.

The Challenger 604 has two General Electric CF34-3B engines, each rated at 8,729 pounds of thrust, according to AOPA. The jet is capable of long legs with few stops; specifically, with eight passengers, it can fly 3,850 miles at Mach 0.74.

The aircraft holds 20,000 pounds of fuel and can comfortably transport passengers across the continental U.S. or on transatlantic crossings. It sleeps up to eight people very comfortably.

Bombardier C Series Surpasses Expectations in Flight Tests

Commercial airplane taking offBombardier recently announced that their all new CS100 and CS300 aircraft are exceeding expected targets for fuel burn, payload, range, and performance and are on track to meet noise targets. The ‘C Series,’ as they are dubbed, are intended to be the quietest commercial jets ever produced — well below the FAA’s Stage 4 limit, and could give the Canadian company a lucrative boost.

During the aircrafts’ debut at the Paris Air Show in June, Bombardier execs reported they expect the smaller CS100 model to be certified by the end of the year, with the certification of the CS300 due to follow soon after. If the C Series performs as well as expected, a larger CS500 model could be on the table in the future.

So far, the company reports 243 firm orders, with two-thirds of those orders for the CS300. However, Moscow-based Ilyushin Finance Co. said it is re-evaluating its order for the new plane as Canadian sanctions against Russia are severely limiting financing options. So there is some doubt as to the viability of the total order count, and continued clamor for delayed planes is testing the patience of eager customers.

With falling oil prices and competitors following closely behind, it’s clear that the C Series is critical to Bombardier’s future. Still, the performance of the C Series is better than advertised while also offering a best-in-class cabin with the ability to carry up to 15 passengers, increased convenience, passenger comfort, and superior profitability.

In addition, Bombardier showed strong emphasis on larger seats, bigger overhead bins, and even specialized window designs that give the plane a wide-body feel while offering operators potential savings between $7.5 and $12 million per aircraft. In the end, the C Series family of aircraft represents a beautiful fusion of performance, technology, and luxury that’s sure to appeal to a number of people with the money to spend.
