Bombardier Learjet 45XR

    The 45XR offers substantial upgrades over its previous iteration. Honeywell TFE31-20-BR engines produce higher cruising speeds and quicker climbs, while a 1,000-pound boost in takeoff weight allows the jet to carry enough extra fuel to significantly extend its range. These performance improvements give the 45XR the ability to reach Sacramento from Chicago, or Moscow from Paris, with a full payload. The cabin of the 45XR offers an eight-passenger club arrangement, while the oval cross section of its fuselage enhances legroom and creates an overall sense of spaciousness.
