Falcon 2000EX

Business travelers were already greatly impressed by the Dassault Falcon 2000 business jet, but that didn’t stop the French aviation industry giant from coming out with an even better version of it—the Falcon 2000EX. It featured the same fuel economy, high performance, and large cabin that made the Falcon 2000 such a huge hit with the corporate air travel market, but those are only three of the many benefits that the newer aircraft has to offer.

Two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C engines power the Falcon 2000EX, giving it a maximum speed of 528 miles per hour and a cruising altitude of 43,000 feet. The aircraft can climb to 37,000 feet in 16 minutes—a noteworthy achievement when you consider that most aircraft in the heavy business jet category take 4 minutes more to reach that same altitude. The increased fuel capacity makes the 2000EX heavier than its predecessor, but the weight penalty is a small price to pay as the newer jet can fly up to 920 miles farther.

 

Fortunately for business travelers, the designers at Dassault made sure that the Falcon 2000EX still boasted of comfort and style. The 1,000-cubic-foot main cabin can seat up to 19 passengers though the standard 12-passanger corporate transport configuration includes seats that could stretch out flat and combine to form a bed for long naps. There is also a lavatory and access to the 134-cubic-foot cargo compartment.
