Artifact Pick of the Week: Learjet 24

Written By: Hanna Brandt / Museum Intern

Ever dream of flying in luxury? Perhaps in a jet? If you have, the image that probably comes to mind is that of the ubiquitous Learjet. Created by entrepreneur Bill Lear, the Learjet 23 premiered in 1963, thus ushering in a new age of civil aviation. Private jets were expensive, exclusive, and moreover became a lasting symbol of affluence and taste. When designing the aircraft, Bill Lear based much of its design on that of a Swiss fighter jet. Lear attached the fighter’s wing to a sleeker fuselage, creating a plane that could transport business executives with unmatched speed. In 1966, the Learjet 24 premiered. Featuring a cabin pressurization system and more powerful engines, this jet could fly higher and faster than its predecessor.

The Learjet 24 featured at the Evergreen Aviation Museum was donated by Bruce Leven in 2007.
