LearJet ®
.40-size semi-scale sport kit

LearJet Photo

Fortune 500 jet looks and performance now in a sport model!

With its innovative design, precise computer engineering and detailed, photo-illustrated instructions, the Great Planes Learjet is perfect for any low-wing pilot. It handles as comfortably as an Ultra Sport - but has the potential for thrilling speed and maneuverability.

  • Precision-formed details, all-balsa exterior and realistic decals combine for easy scale finishing.

  • Wing features standard D-tube construction and tip sheeting to lock in washout, plus a notched leading edge for accurate rib placement.

  • Precision-formed ABS plastic canopy supplies jet lines without carving-and lifts off for easy access to the fuel tank.

  • Includes fixed landing gear plus instructions for adding optional retracts (Hobbico Mechanical Retracts, HCAP4000, recommended).

  • Custom-made white Great Planes Learjet spinner also available separately (GPMQ4542).

  • The radio compartment can be reached through a hatch in the bottom aft end of the fuselage. Angled servo mounting allows the mechanics for control operation to be hidden within the tail structure.

  • Instead of expensive ducted fan engines, the Learjet flies with a 2-stroke sport engine and propeller-an easy, affordable way to enjoy the "jet experience."

"To really knock their socks off at the flying field, here's all you need: moderate building skill, a little low-wing experience, and this head-turning sport-scale kit of the world-famous Learjet 35A. For a model so impressive, it involves surprisingly few parts...and even fewer assembly challenges."
