Dassault’s Falcon 2000S Beats Performance Targets
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
12/11/2012

​(Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 11, 2012) – When certified in early 2013, the final performance specifications for the Falcon 2000S will be substantially better than initially projected.

An 18 month test program that lasted 350 flight hours over 150 flights demonstrated better than expected low speed performance, in particular. Landing distance at typical landing weight has been reduced to 2,315 feet (705 m), from 2,600 feet (792 m); approach speed, to 107 knots; and balanced field length, to 4,325 feet (1,318 m).

“The performance of this aircraft is remarkable. Customers will enjoy the cabin, range and speed of a high performance large cabin business jet but with airport performance usually reserved for a typical turboprop aircraft,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon.  “This combination gives the Falcon 2000S more range, more destination options and better performance out of more airports.“ The Falcon 2000S will be able to access up to 50% more airports than any other business jet in its class.
 
Launched in May 2011, the Falcon 2000S brings a large cabin aircraft to the super mid-sized business jet market. The aircraft can carry six passengers 3,350 nm and features inboard slats, high-Mach blended winglets and a new generation PW308C engine that produces fewer emissions. It is equipped with an entirely new BMW Group DesignworksUSA interior and a redesigned cockpit featuring a next-generation EASy II flight deck. 
 
The Falcon 2000S will have the largest payload with full fuel in its class. It will climb directly to 41,000 feet in 19 minutes, reach a mid-cruise altitude of 45,000 feet and offer a certified ceiling of 47,000 feet.
 
The Falcon 2000S is making its Middle East debut at the Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) exhibition, from 11-13 December 2012.
