Learavia Corp Learfan 2100

Fan Holdings Inc Learfan 2100

LearAvia decided to increase the gross weight of its yet-to-be-built Lear Fan 2100 turboprop from 6,000 to 7,200 pounds. This change will add only 24 extra pounds of structural material. The extra load-carrying capacity will cut range, speed and single-engine ceiling slightly.
The Lear Fan spent all of 1981 in flight tests after a New Year's Day first flight. The Lear Fan cabin has been stretched and much design effort has been concentrated on the single pusher propeller; however, Learavia still hoped to have the non-metal airplane certificated by the end of 1982.
Ownership passed 1982 to Fan Holdings Inc. of U.S.A., but with production in Northern Ireland. Production moved to U.S.A. 1983 but program halted 1985.
