Bombardier will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Learjet aircraft at this year's 66th annual National Business Aviation Association conference and exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 22-24, 2013.
The Learjet 23 made its first flight on October 7, 1963, launching the Learjet product. The latest iteration of the plane will be on display along with the 75 and 85 models.
"This year's NBAA marks an important milestone for Bombardier and Learjet as we celebrate Learjet's 50th anniversary," said Steve Ridolfi, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Visitors will be able to experience the Learjet story and help us kick-off the next 50 years with the Learjet 70, Learjet 75 and Learjet 85 aircraft."
Along with its Learjets, Bombardier will also display the Challenger 300, Challenger 605 and Global 6000 jets.
Bombardier has recently expanded its worldwide support network by regionalizing its Customer Services and Support teams for both business and commercial aircraft in three regions: the Americas; Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Asia-Pacific.
Bombardier has also added a new Regional Support Office (RSO) and announced a parts depot in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Bombardier will be hosting a series of technical sessions during NBAA on October 22 and 23, including a General Session and Customer Luncheon held by the Customer Services leadership team on October 22.
