Bombardier Business Aircraft said on the eve of the Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition that it delivered its first Learjet 75 to a customer in Brazil.

The company did not identify in a news release on Monday the customer who took delivery of the Wichita-built midsize business jet.

In June, Bombardier marked delivery of the 100th Learjet 75 — and the 3,000th Learjet, overall — at a special ceremony at its facilities on the west side of Wichita Eisenhower National Airport.

The $13.8 million Learjet 75, an upgraded version of the Learjet 45, entered service in late 2013.
