We humbly present: Dassault Aviation’s masterpiece

Are you considering the charter of a private jet, perhaps for a work transfer, or for leisure purposes?

In the previous articles, we covered both the Gulfstream G280 and the Citation Latitude, which belong to Gulfstream Aerospace and Cessna respectively.

For this one, we’ll look at yet another jet from our fleet, the Falcon 2000.

It is Dassault Aviation’s super jet, boasting an impeccable track record and performance.

The primary characteristics of this jet are endurance, great capacity, absolute comfort, and being incredibly cost-effective. All factors which have helped gain its reputation as one of the most popular private jets, and a successful choice among business men and women.

The Falcon 2000: a jet that fears no comparison.

Quality immediately catches the eye as soon as you come aboard this marvel of aeronautic engineering.

Even from the outside, the fuselage demonstrates the incomparable care and attention with which the aircraft was designed and built.

Produced at a large scale in 1995, throughout the years the Falcon 2000 underwent several upgrades worth millions, gradually leading to its current reinvigorated appearance. The aircraft currently in circulation are in perfect condition, and barely show the cumulated flight hours of their wings.

Through the various remodels, the entertainment systems and interiors have been greatly improved, both in the choice of leather materials and finishing details. Resulting in an extra luxurious cabin that is fully equipped.

It is no surprise that this marvelous jet comes at a price of about 13 million dollars.

Discovering Dassault Aviation’s masterpiece.

Dassault has really given its best with the Falcon 2000.

This French company has been in operation since 1929, headed by its founder Marcel Bloch, who later came to be know as Marcel Dassault: an eclectic character, an engineer, aviation pioneer, entrepreneur, editor, politician, and a French film producer to boot.

Today, the company is headed by Eric Trappier, and is an active producer of private jets dedicated to business travel and military aircraft, with its civil aircraft (including the Falcon) accounting 60% of its turnover.

The Falcon 2000’s debut.

Successfully launched in 1989 at the International Aeronautics and Space Exhibit in Paris-Le-Bourget, the Falcon 2000 first took to the skies in march of 1993.

Its first pilots were Jean Pus and Guy Mitaux-Maurouard, and the airport which saw its debut was Bordeaux Mérignac.

To this day, there are more than 550 jets from the Falcon 2000 series currently in service.

These are a testament to the excellence of Dassault Aviation. The Falcon 2000 is one of the most beloved aircraft of choice for business trips.

The reason is given by its high technological standards and spacious cabin, which, in terms of performance, brings elevated cruising speeds and the ability to take on transcontinental flights.

A high-end cabin: The Falcon 2000 has everything you need for your business.

The Falcon 2000 offers a spacious, elegant, luminous, and extremely silent cabin to its passengers.

Comfort and convenience are ensured by the 8-10 available seats, two of which can also fully extend to become beds.

Perfect for travelling by night, or generally, for any long journey.

But one of the primary features of the cabin is the possibility of adjusting its pressurization. The crew can go ahead and reduce the pressure of the cabin.

With this, you will feel as if you are flying at a much lower altitude, and upon landing you will feel much more refreshed, less fatigued than you would otherwise.
For example, if the jet is travelling at an altitude of 10.000 meters, as a passenger you will feel as if the aircraft is flying at under 2.000 meters.

Inside the cabin, passengers can make use of the advanced connectivity available for any type of device widely used by businessmen. Telephone, electrical sockets, map, and flight plan are available in real time with an estimated time of arrival.

Wherever you are headed, there is no risk of your productivity being affected by your travels. There is ample space available, even should you need to organize impromptu meetings or conferences in flight.

The interior of the Falcon 2000 is complete with a spacious toilette, designed to accommodate your use of personal effects.

The aircraft also accounts for ample storage and a luggage hold. Both of which can be easily accessed during your flight, and contain luggage of varying dimensions.

The mechanics: the true secrets of the Falcon 2000.

When it comes to mechanics, the Falcon 2000 reveals itself to be one of the best private jets currently on the market.

This aircraft is equipped with an incredibly efficient fault control system and innovative digital systems to perfectly monitor and diagnose the aircraft.

With this, any issues or problem that arise in the aircraft can easily and swiftly be dealt with before and after each flight.

The avionics of the Falcon 2000

Simplicity combined with maximum efficiency, this was the aim behind the design of the Falcon 2000; therefore, its avionics are both incredibly intuitive and cutting-edge.

The integrated suite, Collins Pro Line, is equipped with four screens positioned near their relevant functions.

This way, the pilots have constant access to- and overview of- everything they need to perform any necessary adjustments or transitions in flight.

A super-fast jet.

The Falcon 2000 is a twin engine that travels at a speed of up to .80 Mach and can cover a distance of 3000 nautical miles, reaching an altitude of over 10,000 meters in just under 19 minutes.

From the exterior, the aircraft adorns a set of low arrow-style wings, and two CFE738 turbofans assembled in the tail end of the fuselage.

Currently the two original engines have been substituted for the Pratt & Whitney P-W308C. Which are engines consisting of a turbojet combined with a coaxial fan.

The resulting thrust is then derived from the sum of the exhaust gas of the turbo-reactor, and the compressed air in the duct.

This type of engine is one of the most widespread in modern day aircraft, as they offer low fuel consumption and low noise levels as gas discharges more slowly than other engines.

How the Falcon 2000 was born

The Falcon 2000 originated from its predecessor, the triple engine Dassault Falcon 900, which is a comparatively slightly smaller model. In spite of this, the Falcon 2000 perfectly preserved the same transcontinental flight range.

The space of the interiors is approximately 20% less than its predecessor, yet the wingspan and length of the jet are almost identical.

The choice to eliminate the third engine brought a greater overall stability to the jet and led to a restructuring of the aerodynamic structure, seen by the longer tail.

With these modifications the aircraft consumes much less, its maintenance costs are lowered, and, contrary to other aircraft of this category, it can take-off and land on short runways.
