“Let me be straight with you. What I'd rather have is an airplane. We just had a third kid. I don't like flying commercial. I like to take my family to Hawaii. When I go east, I'd like to have pilots I know. ”
Flexjet Announces Learjet 85 Fractional Program
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.
