Bombardier Learjet 60XR Interior

To many travelers, the Learjet 60XR’s most notable improvement over its predecessors is its interior cabin atmosphere.

Its cabin dimensions of 17′ 7″ length, 5′ 10″ width, and 5′ 7″ height may not be the largest in its class, but it is a significant improvement over its predecessor considering that it is 43 inches longer and 3 inches wider than the Learjet 55 series.

Although the business jet can carry a maximum capacity of nine passengers, it is optimized to transport seven passengers with maximum comfort and luxury.

Comfortable club seating arrangements with retractable worktables, and ample legroom provide the aircraft with the foundation for a comfortable flight.

The upgrade also features many design improvements including increased storage space that can store 59 cubic feet of baggage, a larger galley, customizable floor plans, and a cabin management system, which allows for electronic power and control modules.


The 60XR was the latest aircraft to be fitted with Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21, replacing Pro-Line 4.

The ProLine 21 is a fully integrative avionics system with many key upgrades that include decreased weight, a 75% larger display area (four 8×10 inch screens), higher reliability, and more capabilities.

Its Flight Management Systems interface includes electronic charting features.

This system makes operating the aircraft easier and more efficient.
