The Bombardier Learjet 40 is a twin-engine business jet in low-wing design from the Canadian company Bombardier .


The first flight of the Learjet 40 (a converted Learjet 45) took place on August 31, 2002. A digital avionics system with EFIS from Honeywell (Primus 1000) as well as a digital control ( FADEC ) of the engines are standard on board. The aircraft has a two-person cockpit and a cabin for up to seven passengers who are accommodated in the 1 + 1 seating arrangement. The wings have a sweep of 13.4 °. The first series machines were delivered in the 1st quarter of 2004.

This type is based on the Learjet 45 , but it was tailored to the requirements of the operators of light jet aircraft. Objectives such as the reduction of procurement and direct operating costs have been implemented. In addition, the space available for the travelers was improved and an acceptable toilet was installed. The connection with a long range and high speed is particularly interesting. Compared to the Learjet 31A, there is a cabin that is a good 30 percent larger and a 30 percent greater range for an additional price of 10 percent.

The current version (the Learjet 40 XR ) has improved engines (TFE-731-20 BR), a higher climb rate and an increased range of 3,378 km. With larger tanks, a 3687 km range is optionally possible. The avionics used include a Honeywell Primus 1000 four-tube EFIS, Engine Instrument / Crew Alerting System (EICAS), Honeywell Primus 660 weather radar, Dual Primus II nav / comm systems, Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS 2000), Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) with wind shear alarm, Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) and a Flight Management System (FMS) used. In 2012, Bombardier introduced the successor models to the Learjet 40XR and 45XR as the Learjet 70 and 75.
