Learjet 55 Private Charter Flights

Learjet 55 was released in 1979, and it was based on the Lear 28 and 29 models, but it had a larger wingspan and high-strength aluminum winglets to cut drag, earning it the nickname “Longhorn” because of its wingtips. The series was designed to provide more space than the smaller 25 and 35/A series, and it was originally intended to make three versions — the 54, 55, and 56 — but only Lear 55 was produced. Learjet 55 private jet charter has an amazing range capability and is known for delivering flawless performance and an exceptional flight experience.
