Description: Dassault-Aviation's Falcon is a family of business jets powered by two or three engines introduced in 1965 with more than 1,800 airplanes ordered from customers in 65 countries. The Falcon family has logged more than 11 million flying hours since its first customer delivery in the 1960s. From the twinjet Falcon 20 to the trijet Falcon 7X featuring intercontinental range, Falcon has taken profit from advanced technologies coming from both military and commercial range. Originally Falcon was known as the Mystere and inherited Dassault's expertise on military aircraft programs.
The first commercial model available was twinjet Falcon 20 (Mystere 20) followed by Falcon 200 which was also powered by two engines. In 1979, Dassault delivered the first long range, trijet Falcon 50 business jet. The Falcon 50EX is currently the last Falcon 50 model in production and is capable of traveling slightly more than 3,000 nautical miles (nm). Trijet Falcon 900 features ranges in excess of 4,000 nm (7,000+ km). In 1995, Dassault introduced Falcon 2000 twinjet aircraft for customers needing VIP transport for ranges no greater than 4,000 nautical miles. By 2006, Falcon 7X with an impressive range of 5,700 nm (10,500 km) will complete Falcon portfolio.
The Dassault Falcon 2000LXS business jet is the new production standard intended to replace the current Falcon 2000LX aircraft beginning in 2014. The 4,000 nautical mile (nm) Falcon 2000LXS offers improved airport performance, payload and cabin comfort. The new full-length inboard slats give the aircraft category-leading airport performance and balanced field length. With full fuel, the Falcon 2000LXS will have a payload of 2,190 pounds, a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of 42,800 lbs with a balanced field length of 4,675 feet. Dassault announced the new Falcon on October 29, 2012. Type certification is anticipated in the first half of 2013 with deliveries beginning one year later.
The Falcon 2000LXS will be powered by two fuel efficient and greener Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C engines each developing 7,000-lb of thrust at takeoff. The avionics package includes AirCellAxxess II Satcom System and EASy II cockpit. The cabin sound level within the Falcon 2000LXS has been lowered by two decibels compared to its predecessor.
