Falcon 2000S beats performance targets
Dassault Falcon announced at the MEBA show that the Dassault Falcon 20000S is performing better than expected and when certified in early 2013, the final performance specifications will be substantially better than initially projected.
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.“
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 some 3,350 nm. The aircraft will be equipped with an entirely new BMW Group DesignworksUSA interior and a redesigned cockpit featuring a next-generation EASy II flight deck.
The Falcon 2000S is making its Middle East debut at MEBA.
