The Learjet 40XR is an upgraded version introduced in October, 2004, offering higher takeoff weights, faster cruise speeds and faster time-to-climb rates as compared to the LJ40.


The increases are due to the upgrading of the engines to the TFE731-20BR configuration. These are the "BR" engines. LJ40 owners can upgrade their aircraft through the incorporation of several service bulletins.


Bombardier's Learjet 40, is designed to address the shortcomings of the earlier model Learjet 31A and priced more than $2 million less than the popular Learjet 45.


It is sure to provide many operators with exactly what they are looking for. FAA certified in Jul 2003, with first customer deliveries in Jan 2004, the Learjet 40 is 24.5 inches shorter than the 45 and carries 687 lb less fuel.


While you only get 6 seats (plus a belted lav), rather than the 45’s double-club configuration, and the 1824 nm IFR range is 200 nm short of the 45’s, the 40 offers the largest cabin and best performance of any jet in the evolving light business jet segment.
