The Lear 35/35a enjoyed a production run that lasted more than two decades, mainly thanks to its superb range, fast speeds, and 6-8 seat cabin; passengers can travel up to 1,800 nmi at cruise speeds up to 530mph, making short work of flights from the Midwest to either coast.

Learjet 35 | Bombardier | Aircraft Details

The Learjet 35 and 35A originally started as the Learjet 25BGF, a variant of its predecessor, the Learjet 25. The plan was to power the new aircraft with twin Garret Fan engines – where the GF came from – and to stretch the plane for an additional 13 inches of length. Test flights showed increased power and reduced noise from the newer engine, and improvements to the design resulted in its own model, the 35.

The Learjet 35 would become best known for its speed and range, both of which are high for the light jet segment. The Lear 35 can travel nonstop across much of the United States. The first model was delivered in 1976, 64 base-model 35s built, while more than 600 models of the 35a variant were delivered until 1993.

Additional variations were built (Learjet 36 and Learjet 36a), offering an additional fuel capacity for longer range at the expense of 18 inches of passenger space. Several countries also use variants for the 35 labeled as the C-21A for military and VIP transportation.

The Lear family of business jets are known for their range, speed and overall performance, and both the Lear 35 and 35A were key models in developing the Learjet reputation.


The slightly longer cabin of the Learjet 35 measures 12’9″ long, 4’9″ wide, and 4’3″ tall, providing room for up to 6-8 passengers. Seating is typically arranged in a double club layout, and the seats offer plenty of room to swivel and recline. The cabin features 10 windows with 5 along each side.

One of the coolest and most unique features on the Lear 35 is its mini-bar located in the middle of the cabin. There’s also 40 cubic feet of storage available, allowing passengers to bring around 8 standard suitcases.

Taller passengers will find the cabin’s small size to be a drawback. However, for groups of 6 or less or passengers under 6 feet tall, the cabin is more than suitable when taking into consideration the speed and distance you’re able to travel.


Offering a flight range of 1,800 nautical miles and speed of over 500 mph, the Learjet 35 offers the incredible performance that travelers have come to expect from the Learjet line of business jets. The Learjet 35/A is powered by two Honeywell TFE731-2-2B engines, offering low fuel burn, high cruise speeds, and meeting FAR part 36 noise standards.

The Lear 35 was also also equipped with new avionics systems compared to its predecessors, with autopilot, color weather radar, tactical air navigation systems, and 3 radios of different frequency ranges adding to the safety to the Learjet 35’s operations.

Learjet 35A

The Model 35A was introduced in 1976 as the upgraded version of the 35, offering a higher fuel capacity to increase the range to 2,789 miles. Refueling was also moved to ground level through tanks on the wingtips. Over 600 were built, with serial numbers ending in 677.

In 1996, a Learjet 35a broke the world-record for around-the-world flight, finishing in a record time of 49 hours, 21 minutes, and 8 seconds. This record was still standing as of 2015, and the aircraft used for the flight is in on display in in Terminal C of the Denver International Airport.
