Is this possible for a Lear36?


#1

I noticed this lear taking a lot of flights from my home airport. One flight in particular was quite long and I didn’t think a lear36 was capable of such a flight. Anyway here it is

The Lear 36 is a modified Lear 35. Two seats are removed and replaced with extra fuel capacity. Very helpful for mapping flights.

This also looks to be two flights showing as one:

04:52AM 40.88 -96.78 115 1900 descending
07:04AM 40.82 -96.77 200 2100
07:05AM 40.77 -96.78 247 28000
07:06AM 40.75 -96.87 207 6300 descending
07:07AM 40.83 -96.93 192 9000 climbing
07:08AM 40.88 -97.02 246 10800 climbing
07:09AM 40.93 -97.12 283 12600 climbing
07:10AM 40.93 -97.25

Perchance the controller didn’t send an arrival message.

By the way, welcome to FlightAware!

My company has two Lear 36 XR’s. In addition to the added fuselage tank, we also have lengthened our wingtip tanks. Our range is about 2900 nm, or 6 hours of flying.

We routinely do west coast to Hawaii hops.

controllers dont send arrival messages.

I think he’s talking about sending an arrival message to the computer system, not the aircraft operator.

Inspired by ogogog’s response, I did a bit of research and he seems infact correct. from the bits and pieces I could put together, the controller DOES NOT send the arrival message. The arrival messge (AZ) is generated by the ETMS (Enhanced Traffic Management System) computers based on track log data and ETA. AZ message seem to be typically about 2 after actual wheels down time (a study was done compairing ETMS arrival v. ACARS data) and also can be subject to begin dropped if traffic is high.

I only had 30 minutes to look around last night- If anybody has pointers to more info, I would be very appreciative!
