The Learjet 29 is a twin-engine business jet in a low-wing design . The maiden flight of a Learjet 28/29 took place on August 24, 1977.


The aircraft has a 2-person cockpit and a cabin for up to eight passengers who are accommodated in the 1 + 1 seating arrangement. However, only aircraft that could carry 6 passengers were delivered.

The Learjet 29 corresponds to the Learjet 28 , the number of passengers was only reduced in favor of a larger tank in order to increase the range. Commercial success did not materialize here either, as the engines were too loud and the kerosene consumption was too high.

Only four series machines of the Learjet 29 were built and then replaced by the further developed Learjet 35 . In 1998, all four of the Learjet 29 machines were still in use. In 2006, three more were approved for the Mexican government.
