The new Raisbeck Engineering Learjet 60 aft fuselage locker is a centerpiece of the Raisbeck exhibit this year at the NBAA convention (Booth No. 7937). According to sales manager Tobin Shackelford, the locker is in the final stages of certification and the first units are expected to go into service in the first quarter 2011. The locker is incorporated into the lower aft fuselage. It is nearly 12 feet long and will carry 300 pounds in more than 25 cu ft of space. According to Raisbeck, the locker carries no aircraft performance penalty and is "a fully recoverable asset in Blue Book value."

The locker is long enough to accommodate oversize items such as golf bags and skis and will be initially offered as a customer option on production Learjet 60XRs. It will be offered as an aftermarket item at a later date.
