Learjet Pilot for the Microsoft default Learjet 45 corporate jet adds six adventure flights for the Learjet pilot. A series of six missions begins in Kelowna, BC, Canada and continues to the coast and then southward, ending up at SanLuis Obispo.
Built by Bombardier, the Model 45 is Lear's first all-new aircraft since the Model 23. Although it looks like a Learjet, it has only half the parts of a Model 35, reflecting a significant design progression. The parameters set down for the 45 called for it to have the performance of the Learjet 35, the handling of the Learjet 31A, and greater cabin space than the competition.
The first flight of the model 45 was in October, 1995. With outstanding performance, the aircraft has a ceiling of approximately 50,000 feet and a range of 3000 nm. The flightdeck features a four screen (two primary flight displays and two multifunction displays) Honeywell Primus 1000 integrated avionics suite, while an APU is standard. It is powered by two 15.7kN (3500lb) AlliedSignal TFE73120 turbofans and it's quick with a normal cruise of 440 knots.
Now Combat Planes brings the Learjet experience to life. Your virtual first officer handles the communications as you receive your departure clearance at CYLW in Kelowna, BC. You are carrying corporate passengers to the coast in style.
After you reach your destination you are scheduled to continue south to Seattle, picking up passengers for Portland. In a variety of weather conditions you face predictable and unpredictable challenges to keeping on time and on track.
Portland is nearly midway on your journey south. Next you head for Eugene, picking up passengers for Medford. A fault grounds your aircraft for a day or two, but the company has two so you can start bright and early.
Now the weather is clear and sunny, and you continue south to Oakland, with a last minute option for Rogue Valley. Then its southeast to Merced and Mammoth Lakes. Coming down over the Caldera, you land late in the evening and kick back until morning.
The following day is no rest for a working pilot, and after checking the weather you are off to Bakersfield. You have to pay special attention to a VIP here, and then to the coast and SanLuis Obispo. With six flights and a few choices along the way, your flight plan is filed and the engines are warm: are you ready to fly?
Any computer flying FSX may fly this mission set. You must have either SP2 or Acceleration installed.
