The Learjet 45 stands as a mid-size business jet crafted by the Learjet Division of Bombardier Aerospace. The development of this model arose from Learjet’s ambition to create a contender for the widely acclaimed Cessna Citation Excel in the super-light business jet category. Marking a significant departure from the original Learjet model, the Learjet 45 represented the first entirely new design in the lineage since the inception of the aircraft series. The primary focus during its development was on preserving the family’s renowned high-speed performance.
Although conceived as a robust competitor to newer models and designed to meet more stringent FAR Part 25 regulations, the process of finalizing the Learjet 45 design took considerably longer than anticipated. The maiden flight of the Learjet 45 prototype took place in 1995. However, due to complications with FAA certification in the subsequent year, the initial deliveries to customers faced delays until 1998.
