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.

“What we need to do is always lean into the future. When the world changes around you and when it changes against you—what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind—you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy. ”
