The Learjet 25 is an 8 passenger, twin-engine business aircraft flown at high speeds. It was first introduced in 1967 as a successor to the Learjet 24, it is about four feet longer than the 24.
Engines - Two General Electric CJ610-6 engines with 2950 lbs of thrust at sea level.
Landing Gear - The main gear is in a dual wheel configuration with brakes on each strut. The nose gear is singular and is molded in such a way that it prevents water from getting into the engines. The gear are enclosed in the aircraft after retraction.
Brakes - Instead of thrust reverse being the primary way of slowing down, the Learjet 25 utilizes its braking system as the best and easiest way to slow down.
Fuel - There are five fuel tanks on the aircraft, the two wing fuel tanks, the center fuselage tank, and the two wing tip tanks. The wing tip tanks are what make this aircraft recognizable, with a bomb-like shape.
Drag Chute - The aircraft uses a drag chute to make the aircraft slow down faster (yes, an interesting way to put it), as the brakes might not be enough to slow it on some runways.
