aerotvnetwork November 18, 2009 — Learjet Debuts Two New Interior Designs Featuring Flexibility and Comfort

On October 19th, Bombardier Aerospace announced the debut of two new cabin configurations available on its Learjet 60 XR aircraft. The interior upgrades, the Signature Series Red and the Signature Series Black, were available for viewing at the Orlando Executive Airport throughout the 2009 NBAA Convention. In an effort to bring the large cabin concept to a midsize jet, Learjet developed the interiors with increased functionality and flexible design as priority.

Both Signature Series offer a six-passenger configuration with a 15-inch aisle to provide additional space for comfort and maneuverability throughout the cabin. Cabin seats feature removable armrest caps and panels, as well as berthing capabilities. The redesigned cabin will also include a larger galley offering multiple units for increased storage capacity. In addition, the upgraded cabin will debut a previously unavailable entertainment option, swift broadband capability that supports simultaneous WI-FI connectivity for personal electronic devices, laptops, and Satcom cabin phone. Customers wanting an enhanced entertainment center can opt for the Signature Series Black featuring a 24 in flat screen monitor and powered portable electronic device interface compatible with audio and video outputs.

ANNs Tom Patton took the opportunity to speak with Simon Lafreniere, Manager of Learjets Product Planning, about what the upgrades mean for todays business traveler and the customer feedback that Bombardier has received since its the Signature Series debut.
