Offering excellent range and speed at very attractive price, the Lear 55 is one of the most widely used midsize jets in the charter market today.

The added space offered in the Lear 55 was meant for extra comfort, not extra passengers, so the stand-up cabin is typically arranged for seven seats, though more can be added for a high-density configuration of up to ten passengers.

The layout of the Learjet 55’s seats usually includes a four-place club setting, a two-seat bench, and another individual seat. The cabin also includes a half-width enclosed lavatory, a small galley with warming oven, and an Iridium Global Satellite Phone. There is a total of 60 cubic feet of space for luggage between the interior and exterior storage holds.

The Learjet 55’s design includes an increased wingspan plus winglets to reduce drag. The wing design was borrowed from the 20-series and has been nicknamed the ‘longhorn’. Other design features are higher-positioned engines for reduced interference drag, and a taller vertical tail to improve directional stability.
