The Learjet 75 replaced the 40/45 models in 2013. The Lear 40 series was designed to compete with the Citation XL in the Super-Light category although both are often categorized as a light or a mid cabin jet. The Lear 75 has about 80 cubic feet less cabin than the XL with a similar range and about 35 mph faster top speed.

The Lear 75 performs noticeably better than its predecessor the 45 with 3 foot longer wings, winglets and improved engine thrust. It has the same trailing link landing gear as the 45 which provides those extra smooth landings. Combined with improved breaks from the original Learjet models, the Lear 75 has much better short field performance with a balanced field length of just 4,200 feet vs the older Lear 35 models 6,200 feet. The Lear 75 can carry an additional 1,700 lbs of people and baggage even after you’ve accounted for crew and filled up with fuel which makes it a great aircraft for family vacations or a packed business trip.

Learjets are known for their fuel efficiency and the Lear 75 is no exception burning just under 200 gallons per hour on average. The average hourly operating costs (direct operating costs) are just a little higher than the competing Citation XL, but the 35 mph in speed more than makes up for it.
