Overview & History
The Falcon 2000DX, developed specifically for customers with less extensive city pair requirements, features a unique combination of large-cabin comfort, small-plane fuel economics, and unsurpassed airport performance that have become the hallmarks of the Falcon fleet. With a range of 3,250 nautical miles the Falcon 2000DX is capable of flying 19 passengers comfortably, landing with virtually full fuel tanks.
With the immense success of the DA900 series triple engine intercontinental jet line, the next iteration in the Falcon line was revealed to be the Falcon 2000 series. The inspiration for many of the design features of the Falcon 2000 series is derived from the Falcon 900 series, except the 2000 series features smaller jets with two engines. The first flight of the Falcon 2000 was in March of 1993, and the model received FAA certification in February of 1995.
Production on the Falcon 2000DX started in 2007 and ended in 2011.

The Falcon 2000DX comes equipped with two Pratt and Whitney PW308C axial-centrifugal flow turbofan engines, with each engine rated for 7,000 pounds of thrust. These engines are dual FADEC controlled, and engine parameters are displayed on three LCD EIEDs. With these powerful engines, the Falcon 2000DX is capable of climbing to an altitude of 37,000 feet in just 15 minutes.
In a long-range cruise configuration, the Falcon 2000DX can fly at a speed of 437 knots at an altitude of 43,000 feet. In a high-speed cruise configuration, this private business jet is capable of flying at a speed of 482 knots at an altitude of 39,000 feet.
The Falcon 2000DX is capable of flying for 3,250 nautical miles with eight passengers, offering an impressive range and many destination options.
