Bombardier Aerospace has built the first all-composite manufacturing validation unit (MVU) for the Learjet 85’s pressure vessel. It was built by the Learjet 85 structural design team in Montreal using production tooling, along with “strong support” from the program team based in Mexico. All primary structural components of the all-composite Learjet 85 will be made in Querétaro, Mexico. The MVU will be used to validate the design concepts, manufacturing processes and quality as the program advances toward production start, which is scheduled for later this year.
