An American original, Learjet aircraft are as deeply ingrained in popular culture as they are in
business circles. Their sleek design and aerodynamic prowess have raised them to iconic status as the jet of choice for VIPs, savvy entrepreneurs, and go-getters of every stripe. Pink Floyd deemed Learjet a necessity in its best-selling album Dark Side of the Moon, and Carly Simon sang about her suitor flying a “Learjet up to Nova Scotia, to see the total eclipse of the sun” in the song “You're So Vain.” For decades, the Learjet was the symbol of unbridled affluence and luxury in the minds of many. It was cool. It defined contemporary. It was life in the fast lane at 41,000 feet for the wealthy.
At least that was the perception. The reality was that businesses of every size realized the value of flying Learjet aircraft. The time savings and productivity hours gained by executives and business owners offered superior benefits to flying commercial, not to mention the advantage of being able to meet face-to-face with clients at a moment's notice.
