The Sabreliner was effectively created for both military and common utilization.

North American Aviation started chip away at the Sabreliner as a private wander however it was formally propelled in August 1956 in light of the US Air Force's UTX (Utility Trainer Experimental) prerequisite for an utility plane airplane equipped for performing transport and battle preparation preparing missions. A common designed model (assigned Na264) flew surprisingly on September 16 1958 fueled by General Electric Yj85 turbojets. Not long after the US Air Force requested the Sabreliner into creation, and it and the US Navy happened to request a few Pratt & Whitney Jt12 turbojet fueled forms, including the T39a pilot capability and help transport and the T39b/D radar mentor.

The primary common airplane, the Na265-40, was proportional to the T39a and was certificated in April 1963. The Series 40 took after from June 1966 and offered a higher cruising velocity and more noteworthy inward lodge space. The Series 60 was extended by 97cm (3ft 2in) and is identifiable by its five, as opposed to three, lodge windows for every side. The Series 60a presented flight optimized changes over the 60. The Sabreliner 75 in the interim is focused around the 60 and 60a, yet has a deeper fuselage with more prominent headroom.

Turbofan force was acquainted with the Sabreliner family in 1973 (by which time North American had gotten to be a piece of Rockwell International) with the presentation of the General Electric Cf700 turbofan fueled 75a. The 75a likewise presented flight optimized, lodge, gear and frameworks changes. The Series 65a then is like the 60a and 75 however is controlled by Garrett Airesearch Tfe73131d turbofans. It was conveyed from December 1979. Sabreliner creation stopped in 1981.
