Dassault Introduces The Falcon 2000LXS

Provides Company Update At NBAA 2012

Dassault Falcon unveiled the Falcon 2000LXS on the first day of the NBAA conference in Orlando, FL, Monday. The company says the updated airplane offers improved airport performance, payload and cabin comfort compared to the Falcon 2000LX which it will replace in 2014. The 4,000 nm 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 (MTOW) of 42,800 lbs with a balanced field length of 4,675 feet, which is over 1,000 feet better than some aircraft in its category.

At Mach .80, the Falcon 2000LXS will offer a range of 4,000 nm (standard aircraft, full fuel, 6 passengers, NBAA IFR reserves, 85% 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, 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. Already proven on the Falcon 2000EX/LX, they will provide 7,000 lbs max thrust each at ISA+15°C. However, the newest generation of this engine is even more environmentally friendly due to a new TALON II combustor. It produces 20% fewer NOx emissions than the previous generation, without any penalty in power. It will be 40% "greener" than required by future CAEP/6 regulations. The Falcon 2000LXS will also be delivered standard with EASy II in the cockpit.

The cabin sound level within the Falcon 2000LXS has been lowered by two decibels compared to its predecessor. It will be delivered standard with an entirely new FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system that places more controls and greater convenience into the hands of passengers, making the transition from the office to the aircraft as seamless as possible. The system provides high definition viewing on monitors up to 22 inches with functions that can be controlled from anywhere in the aircraft via an iPod Touch or iPhone. A dedicated application allows passengers to control video playback, operate optional electronic window shades and adjust the lights, temperature and other cabin parameters to their liking. The AirCell Axxess II Satcom System will be included as a standard feature. 

The Falcon 2000LXS will be certified in the first half of 2013 with deliveries beginning in 2014.  Pricing is not finalized, but Company officials said it would be $0.5 million more than the LX model and approximately $4.5 Million more than the 2000S model.
