Over the following paragraphs we’ll consider key productivity parameters for the Learjet 75 and Gulfstream G100 (including payload, range, speed, and cabin size) to establish which Mid-size Jet provides the better value.

Does cabin size and speed drive a decision to buy an aircraft over acquiring one with greater range? It is hoped that the following jet comparison will help provide some answers.

Bombardier Learjet 75

FAA certification was received for theBombardier Learjet 75 on November 14, 2013. The aircraft is the newest derivative of the popular Learjet 45. Compared to the Learjet 45XR, the Learjet 75 offers improved avionics, redesigned winglets (yielding better fuel efficiency), and upgraded engines.

A new Learjet 75 model is planned imminently, named the Learjet 75 Liberty. The Liberty is a lower-cost version of the Learjet 75, and is priced new at $9.9m (compared to a new Learjet 75 which costs $13.8m). The Liberty replaces two seats in the forward cabin with two-fold down ottomans and fold-out tables, thereby creating an "executive suite" and an aft club layout.

Other features that are standard on the Learjet 75 are options on the Learjet 75 Liberty, including the APU and external lights.

At the time of writing, there were 126 wholly-owned Learjet 75s in operation worldwide, an additional eight in fractional ownership, and one is in shared ownership, giving a total global fleet of 135 Learjet 75s.
