New avionics and an upgraded cabin interior distinguish the Learjet 60XR from the Learjet 60, which will be replaced when the newer version of the midsize jet enters service in the first quarter of 2007. The Learjet 60XR will feature Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics, as well as an integrated flight information system that allows the pilots to call up approach plates and airport diagrams on the flight displays. The newly styled interior will have redesigned seats that improve legroom, a larger galley and vanity cabinet and additional storage space. The cabin will also have an updated entertainment system, LED lighting, a reclaimed window in the aft lavatory and a new modular floorplan offering a wider choice of configurations. The price of a typically equipped Learjet 60XR is $12.9 million.
