The End of the LearJet


The coolest corporate airplane every made (possibly excepting the Staggerwing) is flying west. Go figure. Rich people want a big cabin and long legs.

It was more like an F-5 than a Challenger. What a ride!

Bombardier to end Learjet production, cut 1,600 jobs (


Unfortunate but cuts by Bombardier aren’t surprising in general unfortunately. I hope those employees are able to find well paying work elsewhere in a timely fashion.

Not very likely considering the general slow down in all things aviation. :worried:


Bombardier hasn’t been run well in a long time, either.
They came out with their new airliner and couldn’t do a thing with it until they basically gave it to Airbus who now sells it as the A220.

You can thank Boeing for that. They did everything they could to kill the C-Series. :rage:
