The Dassault Falcon 2000 is a heavy jet that was designed to be a more economical option to its sister jet the Falcon 900, without sacrificing any of the performance standards that private fliers have grown to love.
The Falcon 2000 can travel the U.S. from coast to coast at fast cruise speeds with ease and with impressive fuel economy. The Falcon 2000 typically seats 8-10 and can travel 3,100 nautical miles at average speeds up to 515 mph. It can climb to 37,000 feet in nineteen minutes.
The Falcon 2000 shares the wing and forward fuselage design of the Dassault Falcon 900, but differs in design. The 2000s were purposely designed to have a smaller transcontinental range than the 900s to eliminate the need for three engines. The two CFE738 engines allow for the jet to typically need less downtime for repairs and maintenance. The Falcon 2000s also have a redesigned wing, eliminating inboard slats.
This Dassault Falcon 2000 was the first private jet that Dassault designed digitally on a computer without a physical model. The CATIA software used to design the Falcon 2000s helped improve the aerodynamic structure and made it possible to simplify the jet’s systems.
The Falcon 2000s use the Collins Pro Line 4 avionics suite. Systems are grouped by their function and are set up so they coincide with the display screens that control those functions.
More than 550 Dassault Falcon 2000 series aircraft are in service today. Falcon operators praise the 2000 series for its robustness and reliability, its remarkable cost-effectiveness, and unmatched performance capabilities. Each iteration has built on the platform’s many significant strengths, the Falcon 2000LXS being the best of the best. With more range, more payload, superior mission flexibility, and lower operating costs. It’s the worldwide leader in its class.
