Bombardier has tweaked the cabin of its Wichita-built Learjet 75 by incorporating a pocket door between the passenger cabin and the cockpit and galley.

Bombardier announced the new cabin feature Monday on the eve of the European Business Aviation Association Convention and Exposition in Geneva, Switzerland.

“The pocket door option adds an extra dimension of comfort previously found only on larger jets,” Bombardier Business Aircraft president David Coleal said in a news release.

The door also reduces noise levels inside the cabin by up to eight decibels, Bombardier said in the release.

Bombardier said it has received a supplemental type certificate for the door from the Federal Aviation Administration.

Deliveries of the Learjet 75 began a little more than two years ago. In that time the company has delivered 75 of the light business jets manufactured at Learjet’s plant on the west side of Wichita Eisenhower National Airport.
