While Bombardier is ending production of the iconic Learjet, there are hundreds in the charter fleet, and these two companies offer the type in jet card format
Goodbye Learjet. Popularized by Frank Sinatra, James Brown, and Arnold Palmer, private jet’s popularity has been on the decline for more than a decade.
Other light jets like the Phenom 300, HondaJet, and Pilatus PC-24 have taken their place with more spacious cabins. Major fleet operators have lined up behind competitors.
Airshare, Flexjet, NetJets, and Nicholas Air all offer fractional and jet card programs for the Phenom 300. PlaneSense has added the PC-24 to its PC-12 fractional ownership program. Upstart Jet It is building its share program around the HA-420.
If you are a Learjet lover, don’t worry. Plenty of the type is available on the on-demand charter market. Just a call to your favorite broker will do.
