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 smaller twinjet Falcon 2000 can fly on routes of up to 3,000 nautical miles (5,500 km) while cruising at Mach 0.8. It is powered by two General Electric/AlliedSignal CFE738 turbofan engines rated at 5,918 pounds of thrust each. The Falcon 2000 has a seating capacity for eight passengers. The Falcon 2000EX features two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C turbofan engines in lieu of CFE738s that allow to fly farther or faster in shorten trips. The PW308C delivers 7,000-lb of thrust. The new engine also provides to Falcon 2000EX increased climbing rate compared with Falcon 2000. Falcon 2000EX can fly 3,800 nm (7,030 km) at Mach 0.8 carrying six passengers.

In November 2005 Dassault Aviation introduced the last addition to the twin-engine Falcon 2000 product line: the Falcon 2000DX business jet. The newest Falcon 2000DX climbs to 41,000-ft in just 17 minutes powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C rated at 7,000-lb each. This jet has 3,250 nautical miles (6,000 km) range. Falcon 2000DX delivers the same spacious cabin of Falcon 2000EX longer range business jet. Type certification and first aircraft deliveries were expected before the end of 2007.
