When development of the improved model 24 was undertaken, the decision was made to forgo single-pilot operation in favor of higher operating weights. Thus the Learjet 24, which accomplished its first flight in February 1966, was certificated under the FAR Part 25 transport category with a maximum takeoff weight of 13,500 lbs. It was powered by the same General Electric CJ610-4 turbojets that had been used on the model 23. Seating for five passengers consists of a bench seat across the aft cabin, two forward-facing seats ahead of that, and a single side-facing seat backed against the starboard sidewall. The refreshment center is diminutive and baggage space is limited to a rear compartment behind the fold-down bench seat, accessible only from inside the cabin.
