A full-scale cabin mockup of the Bombardier Learjet 75 Liberty will make a three-day appearance next week in Scottsdale, Arizona, a popular winter destination. The new light jet was launched in July as a rescoped variant of the Learjet 75 with fewer seats and options, shaving about $3 million off the price tag—to $9.9 million—while keeping the performance.

Bombardier unveiled the mockup of the six-seat passenger cabin two months ago at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas. That was followed by a showing last month in Florida at the Wings Wheels Water kickoff event for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

In Scottsdale, the Liberty mockup is being made available for private viewing by appointment from December 27 to 29 at Ross Aviation. Guests will be able to experience the aircraft’s “executive suite”—two seats adjacent to two ottomans and fold-out tables—in the forward section and club-four seating in the aft.

“The success of the Liberty mockup [at NBAA-BACE] reflects a strong desire from the market for a light jet that offers more comfort, power, and range,” said Bombardier Business Aircraft senior v-p of worldwide sales and marketing Peter Likoray. The jet’s price point and operating costs make it accessible to more customers, he added.

Bombardier said the Learjet 75 Liberty will enter service in mid-2020.
