Flexjet, Bombardier’s Texas-based fractional ownership operation, launched a Learjet 85 program. President Fred Reid told AIN that his company will take seven aircraft initially, and eventually “a couple of dozen,” with deliveries beginning in the fourth quarter of 2013. He noted that Flexjet’s Learjet 85 prices will be 5 percent below those of the Cessna Sovereign in fractional service. Flexjet’s current fleet stands at 85 jets, including Learjet 40XRs, 45XRs and 60XRs and Challenger 300s and 605s. Currently under development, the Learjet 85 will be the first Part 25-certified business jet built primarily of carbon composites.
