Flexjet Announces Learjet 85 Fractional Program

Thursday, August 25, 2011 - 7:38am

Bombardier-owned Flexjet will offer fractional shares in its parent company's new eight-passenger
Learjet 85. The model, built primarily from carbon composites, has greater range (3,000 nautical miles) and more cabin space than any previous Learjet and offers high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82. Other features include advanced avionics, entertainment and wireless Internet systems. To encourage current Flexjet owners to place a deposit on a share in the new model, the company will waive early-termination fees for existing contracts on other aircraft types that will not expire until after delivery of the Learjet 85.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
