Initially, the aircraft model Learjet 23 was developed by American engineers and designers solely as a civilian aircraft, in particular, an airplane of an administrative type, allowing the transport of several people on its board, or equivalent in weight to the amount of cargo. However, later this development was also interested in the US Air Force, which ordered several aircraft for its own purposes, in particular, the aircraft allowed patrolling, providing aerial photography, and radar reconnaissance in small areas.

The design of the aircraft Learjet 23 meet modern requirements for the aircraft type of administrative, and, despite more than 50-year history, the aircraft continues to operate actively and till today the private owners, which mainly contributes to its high reliability and reasonable price.

The Learjet 23 can accommodate up to eight people, including two pilots and six passengers, which is quite acceptable, especially considering the fact that the aircraft can carry out long enough flights for distances up to 2945 kilometers. If necessary, the cabin of the aircraft could be disposed of in several different versions, including if it is possible to expand the interior space by minimizing passenger seats. If the aircraft was used for military purposes, then, as a rule, only four people moved on its board - two pilots and two servicemen, and the rest of the airplane space was occupied by special equipment, depending on the tasks pursued.

The power plant of the Learjet 23 represented by two turbojets General Electric CJ610-4, each of which is capable of traction in 12,7 kN, which provides a high enough airspeed, amounting to a value of 903 km \ h., Which is more than acceptable. In connection with the aircraft flying at high speeds and at high altitudes, the aircraft is also actively used, and continues to be used, and the US National Space Agency.
