Learjet's  50^th anniversary, Flexjet – the first fractional jet ownership
company to offer shares on the all-new Learjet 85 aircraft – today launched
"Legends Redefined," a six-city U.S. tour offering guests the opportunity to
experience firsthand the aircraft poised to redefine the private aviation
industry. The exclusive showcase features other legendary brands, including
Aston Martin, marking its centenary, andRoyal Salute, the world's leading
luxury Scotch Whiskyfeaturing only whiskies matured for at least 21 years in
their blends.

Attendees are invited to take a private tour of the Learjet 85 model, which
effortlessly blends the beauty of its lineage with high-performance
advantages, innovative technology and unmatched comfort to create a new
generation in flight. Aston Martin will offer test drives of its newest
models, including the Vanquish, Vantage, DB9 and Rapide S, while Napa

"Fifty years ago, the first Learjet aircraft took flight thanks to the
innovative and adventurous spirit of Bill Lear, who invented the business jet
category," said Deanna White, President, Flexjet. "With delivery of the
Learjet 85 scheduled for next year, Flexjet is honoring his legacy by
showcasing the best-in-class Learjet 85 aircraft model – the epitome of a
'legend redefined' – alongside other distinguished brands, representing more
than 200 years of timeless luxury and design."

An industry first, the Learjet 85 aircraft is the first business jet with both
fuselage and wings built primarily of carbon composite materials. The
composite structures maximize cabin volume, improve performance and minimize
drag through smoother aerodynamics. Other innovations include the aircraft's
state-of-the-art Pratt & Whitney PW307B turbofan engine, Bombardier's Vision™
Flight Deck  cockpit featuring the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics
suite – one of the most advanced suites ever offered onboard a midsize
aircraft – and an advanced entertainment and wireless Internet system.

The Learjet 85 aircraft will feature the company's new interior design
updates, re-designed seats, innovative storage solutions and groundbreaking
passenger interfaces. The model seats eight passengers comfortably in a
traditional double-club seating arrangement, with approximately 30 inches
(76.2 cm) between each seat for even more room when traveling on long distance
flights. The aircraft offers a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82 and a
transcontinental range of up to 3,000 nm (5,556km)* making the Learjet 85
business aircraft the fastest and most efficient in its class. The addition of
the Learjet 85 aircraft provides Flexjet owners with access to some of the
most technologically advanced and youngest business jets in the industry,
averaging approximately six years of age.

The 2013 Learjet 85 tour is scheduled to visit the following cities this fall:
Menlo Park, Calif. (September 17), Chicago (September 23), Columbus, Ohio
(September 26), Washington, DC (October 1), New York (Oct. 7) and Houston
(October 15).

Flexjet will receive 30 Learjet 85 aircraft with deliveries scheduled to begin
in 2014.
