This week GearUp.TV reports on Bombardier’s Learjet program, which has come under a lot of scrutiny in the media.

However, during a trip to London’s Biggin Hill earlier this week, we saw one of Zenith Aviation’s two new Learjet 75 aircraft and spoke to managing director Stuart Mulholland about its latest purchasing decision. He revealed that contrary to speculation, Bombardier’s Learjet program is alive and well. Watch the video belowto find out more.

Later on, we witnessed the unveiling of a Piper Archer sporting British Caledonian’s famous livery – the golden lion. The moving ceremony revealed the aircraft would be named ‘Julie – the Spirit of BCAL’ after Julie Washington, the wife of the Archer’s owner and a previous employee of British Caledonian who sadly passed away in 2015.

The aircraft will be used to create funds for the Golden Lion’s Children’s Trust and the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham, Surrey, UK.
