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 900LX is an evolution of Falcon 900EX business jet but featuring winglets and an extended range to 4,800 nautical miles. The Falcon 900LX's wing aerodynamics have reduced the drag by 7 percent and improved the climb performance by 10 percent. The winglets are the same designed by Aviation Partners for the Falcon 2000LX program. The newest Falcon jet will be provided with the EASy flight deck as standard equipment. The Falcon 900LX was announced at EBACE on May 19, 2008. Certification is expected in the first half of 2010 with deliveries expected to begin by mid-2010. The new model will replace the 900EX on the production line. The Falcon 900LX will be powered by three Honeywell TFE731-60 turbofan engines each rated at 5,000-lb of thrust.
