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 trijet configuration of Falcon 900 provides increased reliability in flight and lowers the take off speed placing more thrust near the centerline. The Falcon 900DX has a range of 4,100 nm (7,500+ km), flying at Mach 0.75 and carrying eight passengers into its comfortable and spacious cabin. Falcon 900DX can operate from runways of 1,500 meters in length. It is powered by three Honeywell TFE731-60 engines rated at 5,000-pound each. The Falcon 900EX is able to fly near 4,500 nm (8,300 km) and the remaining specifications remain near those of Falcon 900DX. With approximately 14 Falcon 900DX on order, first aircraft deliveries are expected to be in late 2005. In November 2005 Dassault Aviation announced that the EASA and FAA awarded Falcon 900DX type certification.
