Oct. 20, 2009, Orlando – Bombardier Aerospace today announced that Lufthansa Technik has been selected to develop the new all-composite Learjet 85 aircraft’s state-of-the-art cabin management system (CMS).

The digital, Ethernet-based CMS and in-flight entertainment system will integrate all passenger entertainment and cabin environment management functions in a single system.

“We are committed to offer our Learjet 85 aircraft customers an unmatched cabin experience
backed by leading-edge quality components,” said David Coleal, vice-president and general
manager, Learjet.

The Learjet 85 aircraft’s customized version CMS will feature a high-capacity Ethernet network with a digital amplifier to feed the high-fidelity speaker system and an interface to support the aircraft cabin environment including as lighting and temperature control. The system’s open architecture also allows for easy integration of third-party equipment and new applications, such as High Definition features.

The new Learjet 85 aircraft – redefining the midsize business jet class Launched on October 30, 2007, the new Learjet 85 aircraft will be the first Bombardier Aerospace jet to feature an all-composite structure and will be the first all-composite structure business jet designed for type certification under U.S. Federal Aviation Administration FAR Part 25.

An extraordinary advancement in next-generation flight, the Learjet 85 aircraft’s all-composite structure will allow Learjet aircraft designers to maximize cabin comfort while minimizing drag and improving performance.

Building on legendary Learjet aircraft performance
True to its legendary heritage, the Learjet 85 aircraft is set to deliver the extraordinary
performance, superior technology and exceptional value Learjet aircraft owners expect.

The jet is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307B engines, each boasting 6,100
pounds of take-off thrust each at sea level 86􀁱F (30􀁱C) and low noise levels, while the advanced low NOx emission combuster offers reduced environmental impact. The Learjet 85 aircraft targets a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82 and a transcontinental range of up to 3,000 nautical miles (5,556 km).

The new Learjet 85 aircraft flight deck combines advanced technology with superior design
elements for a cockpit environment unlike any other midsize jet. The latest in technological advancements from Rockwell Collins – the new Pro Line Fusion avionics suite – is paired with
superior design aesthetics to create the ultimate Learjet aircraft flight control environment.

Learjet is the first name in corporate aviation. Since acquiring Learjet Inc. in 1990, Bombardier Aerospace has carried forward the brand’s proud legacy by launching eight high-performance and fuel-efficient Learjet aircraft.
