The Bombardier Lear 45XR is an upgraded version of the successful Lear 45.  Compared to its predecessor, the Lear 45XR has upgraded engines which result in better overall performance. The 45XR fleet is over 200 aircraft which delivered over 14 years starting in 2000.  In 2013, Bombardier completed the production run of the Lear 45XR and began deliveries of the next iteration: the Lear 75.  Corporate operators of the Lear 45XR include Southern Company, Dillard’s and Eaton.

Lear 45XR Buying Guide

The Lear 45XR will only be available on the prior-owned market.  Options are limited so there will not be significant variances among the fleet.  In 2012, Bombardier issued a recommended Service Bulletin for the coupe rail inspection.  If you are considering a Lear 45XR, check to see if this inspection has been completed.  Optional maintenance service plans for engines (Honeywell MSP) and airframe (Bombardier Smart Parts) are also available to smooth cashflows and assist in resale.
