Phenom 300 vs Learjet 75  

We compare these two private jets and explain their differences and similarities across both the cabin layout and technical performance. 

Both the Learjet 75 and Phenom 300 are popular private jets with clients and offer an appealing package of comfort and performance for shorter routes when standing headroom isn't a requirement. We compare these two increasingly popular jets and explain their differences across both the cabin layout and technical performance. 

The Learjet 75 comes from the one of the best-known private jet manufacturers - Bombardier. It shares the popular cabin of the earlier Learjet 45 (featuring a flat floor and 8 individual seats) but offers payload and range enhancements to keep the brand competitive against similar models.

New engines and better aerodynamics enable the Learjet 75 to rectify its predecessor's shortcomings. Its fair to say that a full passenger load compromised the Learjet 45's performance. In terms of technical performance, the new Learjet 75 flies faster and slightly further than the Phenom 300, although both jets have the capacity to reach Istanbul or Marrakech from London.

Being a 'clean-sheet' entrant to the category of light jets gave Embraer the chance to improve on competitors' offerings. They win here with baggage space and excellent short runway capabilities. The Phenom 300's performance means it is approved to land at London City airport – notorious for its short runway and a steep descent over the city. 

The Phenom 300 seats between 6 and 8 passengers, whereas the Learjet 75 has a standard 8 seat layout. It's worth pointing out that all 8 seats on the Learjet are individual club seats. Both aircraft have a separate washroom with a sink and the same cabin headroom. However, Bombardier does claim that the soundproofed door between the Learjet 75's cockpit and cabin combined with their flat floor design results in a more refined experience. As with many newer jets, cabin pressure on both private jets can be set at around 6500 feet, so passengers can benefit from arriving less tired and de-hydrated. Both private jets are also designed with internet connectivity in mind. 


Both of these private jets are great choices if you're looking for a smaller but high performing aircraft that will get you comfortably to destinations around the United States. Whilst the Learjet 75 perhaps triumphs in terms of the on-board experience with its flat floor and club seat layout, the Phenom 300's high performance on short runways and its generous luggage capacity make it an equally good choice.
