In an effort to place a competitive product in the growing light jet market, Bombardier announced the Lear 40 in July 2002 at the Farnborough Air Show.The entry level Model 40 replaced the 31A and brings with it best-in-class cabin volume and performance for a marginal price increase of $170,000 over that of the 31A. As for performance, the Model 40 is the only light jet that can fly nearly 450 KTAS coast-to-coast against strong winter headwinds with only one fuel stop. Based upon the model 45, the 40 is about two feet shorter in cabin length. The Learjet 40 is powered by two Honeywell TFE731-20AR turbofan engines rated at 3,500 lbs. of thrust each, flat-rated to ISA +16C. Inspection interval on the engines is 5,000 hours.
