Avcon's Prescription for the Ultimate Lear
A Long-Range Fuel Solution
For years Learjet owners have asked for a long-range version
of the Lear 35/36-an aircraft that could fly further than
its standard counterpart without sacrificing interior cabin
space or payload.
Well, Avcon loves a challenge! The Avcon Range Extension
Mod (R/X™) not only flys further,
it also carries more payload, and is so stable that yaw dampers
are not required for dispatch.
The Avcon R/X adds 750 pounds of usable fuel in
the tip tanks, which provides up to 40 minutes of additional
flight time at normal cruise speeds and altitudes. By
manufacturing the same tank diameter there is very little
increase in drag associated with the tip tank extension.
Range Estimates With Full Fuel*
|Lear 35 R/X
Over 2,100 N.M.
|Lear 36 R/X
Over 2,800 N.M.

Lear 35 R/X owners can plan coast-to-coast flights
with favorable winds, and the Lear 36 R/X can easily
make Hawaii from the West Coast, even with a headwind.
As an added benefit, the installation of Avcon Fins allows
Learjet R/X owners to purchase optional weight increases:

installation of heavy landing gear (AAK 80-3 or equivalent)
on earlier L-35/36 model aircraft.
The weight increases are FAA approved, and may result in
a net increase in useful load of almost 1,200 pounds.
Even with a full fuel load, two more passengers with bags
can be taken on those extended flights, resulting in increased
revenue or mission flexibility.
The AVCON R/X Mod includes AVCON FINS
for increased stability and cruise efficiency. Yaw dampers
are no longer required, therefore dispatch reliability is
improved. Elimination of the yaw damper requirement
also speaks volumes about the effectiveness of the Avcon Fins.
