As one of the biggest, quickest, best-selling and best-known corporate jetliners in the globe, the Learjet range began with the six- to eight-seater Lear jet 23, which was first flown on October 7, 1963.... Born in Switzerland, where William P. Lear had founded the Swiss-American Aviation Corporation (SAAC) in 1960, the 23 was designed to produce a twin-engine high-speed Executive plane, the SAAC-23.
Initially it was intended to produce at least the first 25 Lear Jet aircraft in Switzerland, but manufacturing was relocated to the United States, where Lear had established the Lear Jet Corporation. Tiny Model 23 was the pioneer of a completely new sector for lightweight businessplanes, and turned out to be very popular. The 24's development includes the 24D, E1 and F, which introduced enhancements such as higher weight, shock and reach.
Like the 24, a number of other aircraft were developed, such as the B, C and D. In 1966, the manufacturer's name switched to Lear Jet Industries, and in January 1970 Gates Rubber Company, which had acquired a majority stake, renamed the company Gates Learjet Corporation.
Gates Learjet 28 and 29 long horns were not successful, basing on the 25, but introducing a new wingspan with extended wingspan and singlets that improves overall engine power output and improves overall engine power, especially load capacity and mileage. Longhorn 28 offers space for up to eight occupants, the similar size of Longhorn 29 offers two additional seating for additional outreach.
