There were only 38 of these American built twin engine jets manufactured in its three-year lifespan (87-90). It was replaced by its twin brother the Lear 31A in 1990. It cruises at a max ceiling of 51,00 feet above the earth’s surface but typically stays around 41,000 – 47,000 feet. Only a handful of civil aircrafts are capable of this. Making it one of the quickest, high flying jets ever. Although it has a small cabin, limited storage and no galley it is a speed demon and is great for business travel. The Lear 31 is what Bill Lear had envisioned when he began the first prototype in the 1950’s after he invented the first car radio.
