The emergence of Bombardier Learjet 55 was mainly owe earlier developments 54-th model - odinadtsatimestnogo business jet, which never went into production because of a number of factors, among which are the technical imperfections, as well as an excessively large costs.
Bombardier Learjet 55B had several advantages over the base model, among which are the increase of the distance of flight, improved performance, as well as the cockpit, separated from the passenger compartment of transparent glass. However, an improved version did not survive among customers, and ultimately produced only 8 airplanes of this model, at the time, as the basic model of the aircraft was released 126 units.

Nevertheless, all of the following for the main production model modifications have not found success, which is why the developers started designing a new business jet - Bombardier Learjet 56, however, because of the problems, no aircraft of this type has not appeared.
