Learjet 31A/35

The Learjet 31A/35 is a member of the well-known Learjet family of corporate jets. Although a small aircraft, the 31A/35 is well-known for its remarkable performance and flight characteristics.

The Learjet 31, from which the Learjet 31A/35 was derived, is considered by many as the “star performer” of the entire Learjet family. The use of the fuselage and engines of the Learjet 35/36 and the Learjet 28/29/55’s “Longhorn” wings with vertical “winglets” for improved handling and safety give the Learjet 31 a capability matched by very few contenders in the small business jet category. It could reach cruising altitudes of 41,000 to 47,000 feet, a service ceiling of 51,000 feet, and a top speed of Mach 0.81. It therefore comes as no surprise that the Learjet 31 (albeit in modified form) is also used by NASA as a research aircraft.

Even with these enviable performance figures, the Learjet 31A/35 is first and foremost a reliable business jet. It is essentially a Learjet 31 but with improvements in the avionics suite, increased takeoff weight, and digital electronic engine control to ensure efficient fuel consumption under all flight conditions. It also provides comfortable accommodations for up to 8 passengers as well as modest baggage compartment space measuring 40 cubic feet.
