Lear 60 Mission Profile
Customers who buy a Lear 60 are focused on a cheaper alternative, without giving up cabin space. The powerful engines allow this aircraft to fly further than its predecessors. This aircraft was crafted from the Lear 55 and its most notable improvements are the aerodynamics which aid in its increased efficiency level.
The improvements to the wings were derived from a Swiss military aircraft, which proves the durability and capability of the Lear 60 in-flight. It should be noted that the Lear 60 is highlighted for its fast rate of clime and equally fast cruise performance. This aircraft is able to perform at high marks, due to its rate of climb, speed capability, and fuel consumption, which in the end saves the buyer money.
