Dassault Aviation - FAA and EASA Approval for Falcon

Dassault Aviation : 12 October, 2007  (Company News)
Dassault Falcon has received approval from both FAA and EASA on its new Falcon 2000DX. The EASA approval was awarded September 19th and the FAA approval on October 3rd.
Introduced during the NBAA Convention in 2005, the 3,250 nm Falcon 2000DX will replace Dassault's original Falcon 2000 introduced in 1989. The first Falcon 2000DX is already in the completion flow at Dassault's Little Rock Completion Center and will enter service in early 2008.

'The Falcon 2000DX fills an important niche in the Falcon product line,' said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon. 'It's ideal for customers focused on efficiency and low cost of operation but needing the size and performance of a large cabin business jet.'

The standard equipped aircraft has exceptional airport performance. It has a low approach speed of 112 kts and can land with the fuel Tanks nearly full which allows it to make short hops from city to city to pick up passengers then continue on long missions without refueling. For instance, the 2000DX can leave New York for Washington DC, pick up more passengers and continue to San Francisco without adding fuel. Likewise, the airplane can leave London for Paris, pick up passengers and then continue to Dubai without adding fuel. Its ability to climb directly to 41,000 feet in 17 minutes puts it quickly above the weather in smooth, fuel efficient altitudes. The 2000DX will come standard with Dassault's award winning EASy flight deck A newly certificated Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) will be available as an option.

The 2000DX is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C engines, rated at 7,000 lbs. thrust (ISA + 15C). The PW308C recently passed 117,000 flight hours on the Falcon 2000EX and 2000EX EASy and has proven to be highly reliable and efficient.
