What makes the Learjet 31A stand out?
Learjets are renowned for speed, and the Learjet 31A – capable of a 1,911nm range and Mach 0.81 – is no different. It also boasts an impressive climb performance of 5,110ft/minute, per Conklin & de Decker. Compared to the original Learjet 31, the big enhancement was improved avionics. Models produced after 2000 were built with TFE731-2C engines, increasing their maximum take-off and landing weights, and available payload with maximum fuel.
