Lear 40 Private Jet Charter Flight Information

Lear 40 Private Jet Charter Description

If speed, cabin space and comfort are at the top of your list for flight performance, then the Lear 40 charter jet should be on your list. When it first entered service in early 2002, it quickly became apparent that this light jet represented yet another chapter in the ever-evolving Learjet line. Produced by Learjet, a division of Bombardier Aerospace Company, the Lear 40 is powered by two Honeywell TRE731-20-AR engines that make the Lear 40 even faster than its predecessor the Lear 31. The Lear 40 reaches speeds of up to 530 mph and can reach an altitude of 43,000 after only 23 minutes of flight. Considered by many to be one of the best business jets in the light jet category, the Lear 40 charter jet is fast off of the ground and boasts one of the most spacious cabins in its class. As a smaller cousin to the Lear 45, the Lear 40 is typically configured for six corporate travelers. However, it can accommodate a seventh passenger on a lavatory seat and still offer plenty of workspace. The Lear 40 is capable of traveling 1,786 miles without refueling. This makes it the ideal aircraft for a Chicago-based executive who wants to book a jet charter flight to Miami for the weekend. It’s also capable of flying nonstop from places such as:

  • Chicago to San Francisco
  • Singapore to Hong Kong

Intended as an upgrade to the Lear 31A, the Lear 40 is a shorter variant of the Lear 45. Yet, despite the reduced size, it still boasts impressive cabin dimensions that measure:

  • 9 feet tall
  • 1 feet wide
  • 7 feet long

It also features ample baggage storage, including an external compartment measuring 50 cubic feet, plus an in-cabin compartment of 15 cubic feet. That way, you can bring everything with you for your trip.

A Proven Performer

In typical Learjet fashion, the Lear 40 charter jet is an excellent performer:

  • Maximum speed: 534 mph
  • Long-range cruise speed: 489 mph
  • Standard cruise speed: 526 mph
  • Range: 1,692 nm
  • Maximum cruise altitude: 51,000 feet
  • Climb rate: 2,820 ft/min

As expected, the Lear 40 is no slouch when it comes to runway performance either. It requires about 4,330 feet of tarmac for takeoff, and just 2,324 feet to land. Additionally, it boasts the best range-payload capability in its class. The advanced Honeywell Primus 1000 digital avionics suite gives pilots a user-friendly flight system to reduce their workload. As a result, flights are safer. While Lear 40 has the range to fly further than most light jets, it remains small enough that it can access smaller airports. In some regards, this gives it an advantage over some midsize jets. In terms of flight planning and airport selection, it doesn’t get much better than this. When you combine the class-leading performance and cabin size of the Lear 40 charter jet with the attention to detail we provide at Stratos Jets, you’re guaranteed a smooth, enjoyable flight. We take care of all of the planning so you can sit back and enjoy the ride.
