For those unfamiliar with Learjets, their name is synonymous with speed. The Learjet 31A can reach a cruise speed of 0.81 Mach after climbing to its cruise level in just 28 minutes — way beyond the capabilities of any competing light private jet. It has great runway performance and a low fuel burn, making it a great candidate for efficient, fast private jet travel. The Learjet 31A can carry up to eight passengers in its 17.1 foot-long cabin. Sixty-seven feet of baggage space is available.
