US CONTRACTOR Corporate Jets has introduced a modified Learjet 35 to meet its training contract with the US Navy's Sixth Fleet to provide electronic-aggressor training.

The electronic-warfare (EW) Learjet 35 is based around the Ericsson-Rodale "Turbo-crow" mission suite. The aircraft has a belly radome housing the antenna for a low-band jamming system. Under-wing hard points are also used to carry additional threat-emitter simulation pods.

Corporate Jets operates two Learjet 35s in support of its contract - one of them in the EW training role and the other rigged for target towing.
