Oh one thing I'm really curious about is: how to get rid of excess airspeed - like when I need to slow down for a pattern? The LearJet is so streamlined that just cutting down on the throttles isn't really effective. What's the right procedure? Thanks!

You really have to plan ahead, it's actually easier than a Cessna 340 I fly. We rarely use spoilers as they are noisy and roughen up the ride. Plus you can't use spoilers with flap extension. The landing gear helps a lot. I fly a 24D which is a little different but we'll do flaps 8 degrees at 200kt then gear down. The gear speed is 203kts (Vlo) and once it's down you can actually do 265kts (Vle) that's how we do emergency descents from FL450, slow to 203kt IAS, put the gear down then fall out of the sky!
Hope this helps but please don't hesitate to ask more.
I have little time in the next few months then summer hits but I plan on using the record feature and adding some audio, if I can figure it all out and do some instrument approaches and training like I do in real life and explain what I'm doing and looking at.
Jason has really done a fabulous job with the learjet.
The only thing I miss is a takeoff trim setting.
