Readily identifiable on the airport ramp with its twin wingtip-mounted fuel tanks, the Learjet 35, the Model 35A was introduced in 1976 to replace the earlier Learjet 35. The aircraft is visually indistinguishable from its predecessor, but features upgraded Garrett/Honeywell TFE731-2-2B engines and a range of 2,000 nautical miles, with a fuel capacity of 931 US gallons. A maximum of eight passengers can travel in the Learjet 35’s cabin, while 40 cubic feet of baggage space provide enough room to hold about eight standard-sized suitcases. Over 600 Learjet 35As were built, with a production line that ended with serial number 677, in 1993. The Learjet 35A also holds the current record for an around-the-world flight of 49 hours, 21 minutes, and 8 seconds.
