While writing this review, I got sidetracked with some new introductions to some of my older stuff that I had written reviews a couple of years ago. L-188, this rumor comes from a PC-12 operator up here, namely me. It is very obvious to me that I only scratched the surface when describing the depth and details of many of the systems and procedures that can be simulated when flying this classic Lear 25D. The autopilot head unit is mounted on the lower center console immediately below the Fuel Control Panel. A 25 will burn more fuel, of course, but that's only part of the equation. It comes only as a pdf and in two editions the full blown 160 pages that in provided to registered user and a still excellent 70 page Sample Version for those who wish to see some detail prior to purchase. Sure, there were some additional company names involved, but we can narrow it down to Bill Lears Lear Jet, Charlie Gates Learjet, and Bombardiers Learjet designs. Coupled approaches work very well and the integration of the GPS and GTNs is excellent. I get frustrated with the older autopilots but they usually do what they were designed to do. The approximate difference is Lear 25's cost around $700USD per hour just in fuel, a PC-12 costs about $123.50. The drag chute has been deployed in a crosswind of up to 20 knots under actual test conditions. I understand that a new French language edition of the manual is almost complete. The Bombardier Learjet 60 can cruise at up to 51,000 feet. 2023 MOTORSPORT NETWORK. MSFS beta update [188.8.131.52] - January 17, 2023. I have been told that the aircraft likes the dutch roll during landing approach or the student like to do it and you need to declare fuel critical while taxing out. I suppose you heard the current joke, Owner - How much do you think my beautiful, well maintained Gates Learjet 25 is worth? Salesman That all depends on how much fuel is in the tanks! Sigh. Alain Rouleau at Xtreme Prototypes is known for his excellent flight manuals and this one ranks right up there at the top of this list. One of our Planephd Experts will be in touch with you shortly. If utilization is 100 hours per year, that's about 20 trips a year. You need to factor in that at today's fuel price, you can pay anywhere from $3.75 to 8.50 per gallon of Jet A. Hopefully Flysimware will tweak this accordingly. If enough folks who buys this add-on and also wishes it included the Fuel Jettison feature would simply ask that it be put on the list for any possible updates, changes, fixes, etc. And best of all, I can place my Flight1 GTN combo in the VC panel with a super simple line change in the aircraft.cfg file. A tank cross-flow valve is installed to prevent fuel transfer between wing tanks. ) Our large helicopter section. Here is a recent price break down from Business and Corporate Aviation magazine. The Lear loves to be at FL400. The passenger compartment has the bench seat and two individual chairs arranged in club configuration. It is our mission to be the go to leaders in the aviation industry. The Lear 60 is also still rolling down the line, and within weeks the "Continental" will roll out its first production aircraft. As the wheel rotation speed accelerates to normal tolerance limits, normal braking pressure is restored. Remember, back at the time of production, the Model 25D was a full million dollars cheaper than a new Model 35. The oxygen storage cylinder has a capacity of 38 cubic feet and is stored at 1800 psi. The spoilers provide an effective means of increasing normal rates of descent and may be used as a drag device to achieve rapid airspeed deceleration. To complete the design efforts that started with the somewhat simplified plan of upgrading the Model 25 with newer fuel efficient and quieter engines with a little more thrust turned into a longer, wider, more powerful new model with much improved low speed handling while retaining excellent cruise speeds at the highest flight levels allowed. Because this new release is specifically designed for newer PC and video cards, you can expect superior performance. Some of the milestones credited to Gates leadership was actually accomplished prior to the Gates takeover. Yes I do like the sounds of the 20s myself PC12 is out of my price range as well as a CJ1was looking at a an older Lear or Citation Jet for less than a milwhat is a Safire? I decided on an Empty Weight of 7,168 pounds and a total fuel capacity of 1,055 gallons. Two spherical fire extinguisher containers can discharge their contents to either engine. FAA certified on September 4, 1970. Each wing tank extends from the centre bulkhead outboard to the wing tip and provides separate fuel for each engine. Embraer is the latest manufacturer entering the business jet market with the Phenom and Legacy lines of business jets. It's got a stick shaker unit that forces the nose down if you get it too slow, pulls it up if you get too fast, Dial markings are based on percent of maximum allowable engine speed. After a honest introduction to the turbine world, will you feel that playing with Ferrari's are chump change, by comparison. Here are some excerpts from the book The History of North American Small Gas Turbine Aircraft Engines, written by Richard A. Leyes and William A. Fleming, available for purchase at Google Books. Had they continued the sweep they would have run out of wing-tip chord and structure upon which to mound the tip tanks, or they would have had to move the tanks back, thus aggravating the cg problem. Aircraft flying government officials, Helicopters That one is indeed in work and will, most likely be available by a different developer in the next couple of years or so, maybe sooner. Disclaimer: Information on this site may not be accurate or current and is not valid for flight planning or any other aircraft operations. Maybe missing is not the correct word, but I sure do miss the ability to perform a fuel dump or fuel jettison procedure so I can practice returning to the airport after taking off with a full load of fuel. The 36, because the normal behind-the-aft seat baggage area was removed to make room for the larger fuselage fuel tank, has a small luggage area opposite the door under which a slide-out potty is stowed. The indicator face is divided into green (safe), yellow (caution) and red (danger) segments. In cruise flight the Learjet flies at about a three-degrees nose-up angle so the engineers lowered the nose of the tip tanks three degrees. This has to do with the AP over rides of the pitch and roll and the VS modes. The 30 series have much more fuel efficient engines, not to mention quieter. With this setup I can use standard weights of 170 lb men and 120 lb women and carry a small amount of baggage with full fuel and be slightly under Max Ramp Weight of 15,300. I suggested the Empty Weight be reduced from 8,120 to 7,468 and the fuel load increased to 910 gallons. WebCertified to the stricter FAR Part 25, the $13.8 million Learjet 75 competes with the Embraer Phenom 300 and the Citation CJ4, beating them in cabin volume, with 364 cu ft (10.3 m 3) against 327 and 295 cu ft (9.3 Fuel burn at high-speed cruise: 1,079 lb/h (489 kg/h) at 451 kn TAS at FL470 Primary flight control is achieved by use of dual control wheels and rudder pedals. Aircraft painted in beautiful and original liveries, Airport Overviews Bottom Line: A most definite Buy Rating. This has always been a choke point, restricting airflow and creating drag at high speed. Both look like Learjets. An integral anti-skid system in installed to affect maximum braking efficiency. The fuel inefficiency, the limited range, and the airport noise problem. ( It is not perfect but any glitches or limitations are prominently discussed in the 160 page Flying Manual with suggestions for workarounds and hints on how to avoid any limitations of the simulators. Hence, the reduced Max Landing Weight. Panel space is naturally very limited in a classic Learjet, but an improved and very nifty one-click rotating choice of three gauge clusters is available. If there was to be a Model 26, it would have most likely been powered by Garrett fanjet engines. The 30 series have much more fuel efficient engines, not to mention quieter. Pretty heady stuff, this Century III wing mod. It is easy to see why the turbojet was on the top of the list for replacement with fuel prices skyrocketing. There were only a handful of 20 series models after the 25D. No extra charges for P3D. The aircraft is equipped with AC (Alternating Current) and DC (Direct Current) electrical systems. It is fairly easy to narrow down the identity of a Learjet with 3 or more small fuselage windows with large wingtip fuel tanks. The average price of the Learjet 25D is not currently available. The PW JT15D-5 powers the Hawker 400XP with 3,400 lbst. That is really nice. You can also add EICAS gauges from the Lear 45 FSX/P3D default model. Overall, this is one of the most detailed and complete add ons that I have in my virtual hangar. You can use 15,300 pounds as ramp weight with a MTOW of 15,000 lbs. True! The Normal Checklist and Procedures are far more than simple lists each item has a reference to a page number and a figure in the manual in addition to the action required. The Gates Rubber Company purchased all of Bill Lears interest for about $28 million in early 1967. One summary table for fuel burn (1st hour, 2nd hour, etc) is included and a simplified example of a 950 nm flight is included which is more than most other developers include so I may be coming down a little hard on them. Enough of the background and similar Learjets, let look at the Learjet 25D that inspired the Xtreme Prototypes design team. Our GLJ 25SE flight model does indeed have the updated BLEs instead of the older vortex generators. A new cuff was designed to accelerate the air movement in this area that smoothed the flow between the engine nacelle and the wings trailing edge. Jump straight to the total cost table of the Bombardier Learjet 31. The hydraulically retractable landing gear is of conventional tricycle configuration with air-hydraulic shock-type nose and main gear. You have to remember, VRSURGEON's mission is about 2.0 - 2.5 hours/ each leg for visiting family . These numbers were soon eclipsed by Cessna and their Citation line of business jets. Twin engine turbojet aircraft. The inboard doors are hydraulically operated while the outboard doors are mechanically operated by linkage connected to the main gear struts. So, if the normal econ cruise is supposed to be M0.77-M0.78, the fuel burn modeled is definitely too high. , Two General Electric CJ610-6 single-rotor axial-flow turbojet engines are pylon-mounted on the aft fuselage. I was a dyed in the wool Cessna Citation fan for a long time and really still am, but you have to love the speed and power of these early Learjets. But, there's nothing like giving the " finger" to the commercial flying world! 100 hours a year isn't worth owning an airplane. There are more Learjets in service than any other business jet. I cant speak for the Legacy systems, but Ryan Butterworth says he has a something less than the best system and he has posted some Frame Rates compared to some of his other addons. Thanks to its Honeywell TFE731-20BR engines, the Learjet 45XR has a total thrust output of 7,000 lbs. Robertson, of STOL fame, also took a crack at adding small winglets on top of the wingtip fuel tanks to try to enhance the endurance of the Model 25 along with replacing the GE CJ610 engines with PW JT15D-5 engines to add STOL capability to the already hot Model 25. If the yellow disc is ruptured, either or both containers have been discharged into the engine nacelle. A tank cross-flow valve is installed to prevent fuel transfer between wing tanks. Ask the man who owns one Actually that bit of airport rumor comes via a PC-12 operator up here. Things seem to be just fine at the Lear jet factory. AVSIM Online - Simming's Premier Resource! The Century III wing modification alone lowered the final approach speed by an astounding 15% without any loss of cruise speed while reducing the landing distance by nearly 1,000 feet for the new Model 35. Only $1.1 MM for the full mod. It is almost always mentioned the reason for the push to abandon the GE 610 turbojet engines was the spiraling cost of jet fuel and the fact that just about every ounce of efficiency had already been squeezed out in the many upgrades and modifications since the first Lear 23 flew with the 610-1 version. Has anyone heard of Learjet proposing to make a new lear? It's easy! 124.2 WebFuel Burn: 257.4 GPH Stall Speed: 87 KIAS Rate of climb: 6,800 FPM Rate of climb (1 engine out): 2,050 FPM Ceiling: 51,000 FT Ceiling (1 engine out): 27,000 FT Takeoff distance: 3,393 FT Landing distance: 3,310 FT Weights Gross Weight: 13,500 LBS Empty Weight: 7,327 LBS Maximum Payload: 3,760 LBS Fuel capacity: 840 GAL Ownership A pre-owned Lear 70/75 fetches between $5.50 million and $9.25 million. Fair enough. Hydraulic pressure for retraction and extension of the gear is transmitted by a system of tubing, hoses and actuating cylinders and is electrically controlled by limit switches and solenoid valves. Lear never used an A designator for any production Model 25, only on the Model 24. WebThe Lear 70 cruises 11% faster than the CJ3, and has an tremendous ceiling of FL510, allowing operators to climb into the smoothest air and optimize fuel efficiency. These boundary layer energizers are small spanwise ridges on the upper wing surface just ahead of the aileron. Both are powered by aft-fuselage-mounted, twin Honeywell TFE731-40BR turbofans, with a top speed of an impressive 535 mph (465 knots) and an average fuel burn of just under 200 gallons per hour. When the tank is full, a float switch de-energizes the wing boost pumps and closes the valve. So, in summary, it appears that Gates was going down a path of basically adding two new engines and whatever electrical, mechanical, hydraulics-wise and otherwise was required to make them work on an existing well developed airplane to move from turbojet engines to fanjet engines. They are practically identical to the engines in the supersonic T-38A Air Force jet that the Thunderbirds flew for years, except the civilian version does not have the afterburner. When all was said and done, this New Version of the Learjet 25 was none other than the Model 35 which first flew more than 4 years later on August 22, 1973 but, not certified for almost another year in July, 1974. Many times I receive offers or invitations to review a product and the offer comes at an inconvenient time mostly due to my haphazard work schedule. A rate controller enables the crew to select the rate pressurization of the cabin within preset limits. On aircraft equipped with variable authority steering, the steering authority varies with ground speed. It is a stretched version of the Learjet 24. This is an FSX limitation, no Ramp Weight field. The inverter outputs are frequency synchronized through a paralleling bus tie. Is this a review on a flightsim website, or Wikipedia ? Two disc-type indicators are flush mounted under the left engine. Flying Magazine, June 1980. I would like to recount the history of the General Electric CJ610 engine used in all the 20 series Learjet models, including our GLJ 25SE and hopefully get back to the story of how the original Garrett AiResearch TFE731 engine came to be. I was rewarded with free download links for a Learjet 24/25 Cockpit Reference Handbook and the Learjet 25 Operating Handbook that has the performance charts. The control wheels operate the elevator and ailerons mechanically through a system of cables, pulleys, push-pull tubes and bell cranks.

To correct for the wing drop, in 1979 Gates introduced another improvement call Softflite. A duty cycle of 3 minutes on and a cooling period of 20 minutes off is required to avoid overheating the pump motor. Microsofts planned layoffs will hurt MSFS or not? Ouch. We thank you for your support and hope you'll join the largest aviation community on the web. This one got interrupted a couple of times and I feel guilty that it took me so long to finally complete the review. fuel cost (one hour) Lear 24F $591.73 Lear 25D $721.92 Lear 35A $534.76 Normal Cruise Speed 443 kts The 30 series have much more fuel efficient engines, not to mention quieter. The Gates team was concentrating on designs to replace these General Electric turbojet engines with the much more fuel efficient Honeywell turbofan engines and designing new supercritical wings with winglets rather than wingtip fuel tanks. As those folks that built or bought homes near the new airports and then discovered just how loud these little Pocket Rocket Learjets could be as their dishes rattled and windows vibrated they pressed for more and more stringent noise controls. I seldom fly with more than 4 passengers, but many times I reduce the fuel load to the Max Landing Weight of 13,300 because the fuel dump procedure is not included. I need something cabin class that is cheap to fly for about 1 hour legs. If you own the previous 20 Series add on from XP, keep in mind that this version 2.0 Special Edition is not an update or upgrade - this is a totally and completely redesigned new version. The ICAO designator as used in flight plans for all Learjet 25 models is LJ25. Nose wheel steering is electrically controlled via the rudder pedals. The Learjet 24 had several variants, designated by letters A, B, C, D, E, and F. The Model 25 was introduced just prior to Gates taking over the majority ownership of Lear Jet in late 1966. The largest seller is the Model 25, but more 35s were sold in the past six years. My screen images are not as sharp as it should be but, I just cant seem to find to time to tweak it. Fuel can also flow via the flapper check valves into the wing tanks, but the lower half of the fuel in the tip tanks must be transferred with the jet pump. This GLJ-25 SE should easily cruise at FL510 at ~450 kts with half fuel and 4 passengers. They even had the engine model numbers and thrust level properly identified. During fuel transfer, the fuselage tank transfer pump pumps fuel into both the wing tanks. (But the cargo door is still available as an option.) The company is careful to emphasize that the 35 and 36 are additions to the line and not replacements for the 24D, 25B and 25C. Additionally, the Learjet 45XR has an average hourly fuel burn of 204 Gallons per Hour (GPH). The 40 is a 45 that has about 26 inches chopped out of the fuselagealso in production and certification with first flight scheduled for March. by the manufacturer or FAA. Xtreme Prototypes hybrid model the Classic GLJ Model 25 Special Edition is based on one of the last true or original Lear Jet designs at the start of the Gates Learjet tenure. Lears made their mark with exceptional speed and high-level cruise. The Model 28 and 29 Lears were test beds for adding winglets and testing early version of the eventual Garrett AiResearch fanjet engines that were first used for the Model 35 and 55 Longhorn. At idle on the ground a 20 series learjet will burn something like 150 +or- us gallons per hour. Thanks to its Pratt & Whitney Canada PW305A engines, the Learjet 60 has a total thrust output of 9,200 lbs. WebCertified to the stricter FAR Part 25, the $13.8 million Learjet 75 competes with the Embraer Phenom 300 and the Citation CJ4, beating them in cabin volume, with 364 cu ft (10.3 m 3) against 327 and 295 cu ft (9.3 Fuel burn at high-speed cruise: 1,079 lb/h (489 kg/h) at 451 kn TAS at FL470 Parts are actually less of an issue with a 25 than you might think, because so many have been scrapped that you can usually find used parts. The brake system incorporates four power-boosted disc-type brakes with integral anti-skid system. As most of you already know, Bill Lear invented the autopilot during World War II, and every Learjet that ever left the factory came with a Bill Lear designed J.E.T. The original design guideline was to increase thrust over the GE turbojets just enough to make sure the new model was at least as fast as the Model 25 that it was to replace. It had the old Air Force engines on it. They put out 18.6 percent more thrust at sea level than the GE CJ610s used on the Model 25, and nine percent more thrust at 40,000 feet. I just need to find the time to find all those 80 animations in the cockpit. Even more interesting might be why the Model 35 and 36 have that funny shaped 2-foot wing extension and why the plane is a foot or so longer than planned. See cover of AW&ST, December 6, 1982. Many don't put that on their FCar in decades. This is a significant step forward in providing an affordable, but yet sufficiently complex model of one of the many classic LearJets. Two wing tanks, a fuselage tank and two wing tip tanks. The fuel flow through a rotor-turbine at each engine causes the rotor to spin and a pickup coil emits pulses as the rotor blades pass through the coil field. Ouch. For practicing the return to the airport procedure, I start with 13,500 pounds Gross Weight so I can burn off 200 pounds of fuel on takeoff and return for a landing. The engine compartments consist of an eight-stage axial-flow compressor directly coupled to a two-stage turbine, a through-flow annular combustion system, variable inlet guide vanes, controlled compressor interstage bleed, exhaust nozzle and accessory drive system.

This excellent throttle response enables rapid acceleration and precise power settings. Starting ignition is provided by a dual output capacitor-discharge system. This combination makes the 35 and 36 much less costly to operate than a 25B or C and it will give them one of the best single engine angles of climb of any of the jets. In order to minimize heat build-up in the brakes and reduce brake wear, pilots are advised to deploy the spoilers upon touchdown. There are so many flying around on medical runs, express cargo services etcI often wonder how much profit they compaines make on each flightI heard they charge big bucks the 20 series learjets are cheap to aquire but the fuel bill is a different story. Two motor-driven shutoff valves will stop hydraulic flow to the engine-driven pumps in case of an emergency. liste des pays reconnaissant le sahara marocain
