“This demonstration tour is an opportunity for our customers in this growing market to experience our aircraft,” said Fabio Rebello, Regional Vice President, Sales, Latin America, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“With its unparalleled performance, versatility and true Learjet heritage, the Learjet 60 XR aircraft is perfectly suited for the needs of our customers in Latin America and the Caribbean,” he added.
