Title: Learjet C-21A

The Learjet was one of the first private luxury jets, and first flew in 1963, entering service in 1964. It was developed by William Lear, a famous American inventor and engineer, known for the development of Motorola car radios and later, aviation radios. Lear based the aircraft on the Swiss FFA P-16 fighter jet and design first started in Switzerland, later transferring to Wichita.

The initial models were the Learjet 23, 24 and 25, largely similar but the 25 had a stretched fuselage. A variant of the later turbofan powered model 35 was purchased by the USAF as the C-21A transport and medical airlift aircraft.

This title contains the USAF flight manual for the C-21A plus three nice brochures on the three early civil models of the Learjet. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
