Overview & History

The Falcon 2000 is a twin-engine French-made Business jet, and is essentially a slightly smaller development on the Falcon 900 trijet, with a transcontinental range. The Falcon 2000 was originally conceived for the United States coast-to-coast market.

The Falcon 2000 jet comes with fault monitoring and digital diagnostic systems, which help the mechanic in troubleshooting and repair work. Most parts of the airplane are positioned to be easy for mechanics to reach and maintain. The Falcon 2000 was designed to spend as little downtime in the shop as possible.

As of January 2014, the Falcon 2000 market is comprised of 100% pre-owned. The percentage for sale is 10% with 100% under an exclusive broker agreement and average days on the market are 450 days.

Dassault introduced the Falcon 2000 as the Falcon X in 1989. The development of the aircraft was carried out by Dassault in partnership with Alenia, and first flight came in 1993. Two years later, in 1995, the Falcon 2000 entered service.

The Falcon 2000 was the first private jet that Dassault designed without a physical model. Its design was completely digital, created by Computer Aided Three-dimensional Interactive Application (CATIA) software. This software helped improve the aerodynamic structure and simplified the airplane’s systems.

 

Dassault Falcon 2000 Performance

The Falcon 2000 comes equipped with two CFE738-1-1B axial centrifugal flow turbofan engines. Each engine is rated at 5,918 pounds of thrust with an inspection interval of 6,000 hours. These engines are controlled by dual FADECs with engine parameters displayed on three LCD EIECs.


Even with these advanced engines, the fuel consumption rate of the Falcon 2000 is only 283 gallons per hour, making this private business jet an economical choice. For a flight to a further destination, this private business jet is capable of maintaining 417 knots at an altitude of 43,000 feet. In a high-speed cruise configuration, the Falcon 2000 is capable of maintaining 479 knots at an altitude of 39,000 feet, still well above most aviation traffic.

The Dassault Falcon 2000 is capable of getting you to even far-reaching destinations, with an impressive transcontinental range of 3,450 nautical miles.
