Dassault introduces the Falcon 2000LXS


Oct. 29, Dassault Falcon launched the Falcon 2000LXS, offering improved airport performance, payload and cabin comfort compared to the Falcon 2000LX which it will replace in 2014.

The 4,000 nautical mile Falcon 2000LXS will allow operators to access more airports because of new full-length inboard slats which give the aircraft category-leading airport performance and balanced field length.

“Customers are demanding more of their business jet and that’s what Dassault is delivering in the Falcon 2000LXS. Like all Falcons, the 2000LXS will offer the best fuel economy and the lowest operating costs in its category,” said John Rosanvallon, president and CEO of Dassault Falcon. “But, what also needs to be recognized is the continuous evolution and robustness of the Falcon 2000 platform which has set the highest of standards for comfort, reliability and efficiency in business aviation.”

With full fuel, the Falcon 2000LXS will have a payload of 2,190 pounds; a maximum takeoff weight of 42,800 pounds with a balanced field length of 4,675 feet, which is more than 1,000 feet better than some aircraft in its category.

At M.80, the Falcon 2000LXS will offer a range of 4,000 nautical miles (standard aircraft, full fuel, six passengers, NBAA IFR reserves, 85 percent Boeing Annual Winds).

It will climb directly to 41,000 feet in 19 minutes, reach a mid-cruise altitude of 45,000 feet and have a certified ceiling of 47,000 feet. With a typical end-of-flight profile, the Falcon 2000LXS will need just 2,260 feet of runway to land, no longer than that needed for a turboprop aircraft.

Thrust on the 2000LXS will be provided by two new generation Pratt & Whitney Canada 308C engines.
