The Learjet 24 is an American six to eight seat (two crew and four to six passengers) twin-engined, high speed business jet. It was manufactured by Learjet as the successor to the Lear Jet 23.
The first flight of a Learjet 24 took place on January 24, 1966. From May 23 to 26, 1966, a Learjet 24 flew around the world in 50 hours, 20 minutes flying time as a demonstration of its capabilities.
Different variants were the 24A, B, C, D, E and F, with changes of takeoff weight, range, cabin and engines. Altogether 259 Model 24s were built.
The Learjet 24E and Learjet 24F were introduced in 1976 with a new cambered wing and aerodynamic improvements to reduce stall and approach speed (Century III wing). The 24E did not have a fuselage fuel tank for higher payload but shorter range. Some 24E models had the fuselage tank installed later to restore range. Powered by two 2,950 lbf (13.1 kN) thrust General Electric CJ610-8A turbojet engines.
