The Dassault Falcon 900 is a heavy jet designed as a larger, enhanced version of the Falcon 50 super-midsize jet. The Dassault Falcon 900 received FAA certification in 1986, and while it does share a similar configuration to the Falcon 50, it has a larger range, can seat more passengers, and has a longer and wider fuselage. The longer fuselage allows the interior to be more spacious and comfortable, while also providing passengers a bit of separation from the crew.

The Dassault Falcon 900 design incorporates composite materials wherever possible, drastically reducing the weight of the aircraft. The flight range is impressive, able to travel 4,600 statute miles because of the innovative three-engine configuration. The third engine is ideal for international flights and also offers flight planning and safety benefits. The Falcon 900 can seat up to 12 passengers and travels at average speeds up to 536 mph. The Falcon 900 jets share virtually the same wing design as the Falcon 50.

In 1994, Dassault introduced the Dassault Falcon 900, a longer-range version of the Dassault Falcon 900 with increased fuel capacity. The Dassault Falcon 900 features a Honeywell Primus 2000 avionics package, engine upgrades that provide the aircraft with additional thrust, and a Head-Up Display for the pilot.

Strong yet light, agile yet smooth, powerful yet efficient. Many of the 900LX’s finer attributes result from technology developed for Dassault’s military programs. Like any good fighter jet, its design assures pilots precise and responsive aerodynamic feedback and large safety margins.
