Bombardier LearJet 28 \ 29 - twin-engine business jet manufactured by the American company Lear Jet Corporation during the period of 1977 1982 year. Although the minimum number of outstanding aircraft of these models, and for five years was made only 7 aircraft (5 aircraft Bombardier LearJet 28 and 2 aircraft Bombardier LearJet 29), they all operate to this day.

Initially, the American aircraft were trying to set up production of the aircraft, which could replace the previous model - Bombardier LearJet 25However, production was so expensive that in large-scale release of new models and were not included. Initially, business jets carried the name LearJet 28 \ 29, however, after the company acquired the shares of Bombardier Aerospace US corporation, the name of the aircraft was made to add a Canadian brand Bombardier.

The Bombardier LearJet 28 plane could accommodate up to 8 passengers on its board, but given the state of the business community, such a large passenger capacity for administrative type aircraft was useless, which means that a few years later aircraft designers presented a new model - Bombardier LearJet 29, different from 28 Model by the fact that by reducing the passenger capacity it was possible to increase the capacity of the tanks of the aircraft, which naturally led to an increase in the flight range. Nevertheless, the tremendously high fuel consumption, as well as expensive maintenance of these administrative aircraft, led to minimal interest in business circles, which ultimately brought to the aircraft manufacturers an exceptional loss.

One of the main reasons for the high cost of business jets Bombardier LearJet 28 \ 29 a rich interior, and, if previously Corporation Lear Jet completed salon after prior approval of the customer, in this model there was only one collation, and, panel walls are lined with black and red tree seating tight fitting genuine leather, etc. Experts do not rule out that this factor has led to one of the reasons for low demand for aircraft Bombardier LearJet 28 \ 29.

In the design of aircraft Bombardier LearJet 28 \ 29 aircraft designers have made in the fuselage of the aircraft is one very important element, which is used to this day in almost all business jets - winglets. Because of this element increases manageability aircraft when flying at cruising speeds, but also increases fuel economy.

To date, Bombardier LearJet 28 \ 29, all seven units issued for 5 years of production, used by NASA, although initially, 4 unit belonged to representatives of business circles.
