The Learjet 35 was produced from 1973 through 1994. By far the majority of the Lear 35s on the market today were manufactured during the 1980s.
Until recently, the Lear 35 was the single most common aircraft to find on the charter market; 738 of them were built!
The Lear 35's have their pros and cons. Lear 35s are very fast, have exceptional range for a light jet, and perform well at high altitude airports. Many of the new light jets just can't compete with the stellar performance of these old Lear 35s.
On the flipside however, all of the Lear 35s are old now, none of them have a "real" enclosed lavatory (though many have attempted), and they're pretty tight in size.
If you're looking for fast, economic executive transportation, the Lear 35 may be for you. If you care about space and high end luxury appointments, you should select a different plane.
Lear 35s will seat up to 8 people, though the ride will be "very" tight. Ideally, we don't recommend chartering a Lear 35 with more than 6 people and light luggage
