The Learjet Model 31 is, arguably, the ultimate realization of the original Learjet series Essentially combining the fuselage and engines of the model 35/36 with the “Longhorn” wing of the 28, 29 and 50 models, results in performance which is equaled by few aircraft. Normal cruise altitudes range from 41,000 to 47,000 feet and the aircraft’s maximum cruise altitude of 51,000 feet is a distinction shared by only a handful of civil aircraft. Improvements over earlier models, such as “Delta-Fins” and a “Ski-Locker” increased the utility and improved the performance of the model 31.

IAS comments: The Learjet 31 provides cost effective business transportation and is ideal suited for the Indian market that requires short field performance. Let IAS assist you with the acquisition and modernization of a Learjet 31 converting it to an “IAS Express” . The” IAS Express” modification of Learjet 35/36 and 31 series aircraft increases speed, range, baggage capacity and useful load while reducing operating costs. They can be operated from smaller airports at higher altitudes to more distant destinations than standard Learjets.
