Flight Management Systems may be added at the manufacturer's discretion or as an aftermarket STC. Some companies decided to "save" money in manufacture by not adding that particular system into the original build Type Certificate.
It all comes down to "who's your customer", and "what's your market"?

Quoting Alasdaironeil (Thread starter): I was looking though the photos on airliners.net, and i notice that the learjet doesn't have an obvious FMC, if any at all. This is also the case for the Dassault Falcon 900EX.
The Learjet's have their FMC/GPS units on the aft side of the throttle quadrant (see below).
