Dassault Falcon 2000S, Falcon 2000LXS achieve EASA certification

Dassault Falcon

SAINT-CLOUD, France, 18 March 2013. Dassault Falcon 2000S and 2000LXS business jets have gained EASA certification; FAA approval is expected to follow.

The two-year-long flight test campaign for the two new models demonstrated short-field and low-speed performance substantially better than targeted figures, greatly expanding the number of airports the two aircraft can serve.

Upgraded Pratt & Whitney PW308C engines make both models economical to operate and environmentally friendly, whereas the engine's TALON II combustor will provide fewer emissions.

"The new Falcons display the same outstanding comfort, performance, and efficiency that have made the Falcon 2000 one the most successful large cabin twinjet models in the industry," says John Rosanvallon, president and CEO of Dassault Falcon Jet, noting nearly 500 units have been delivered since the first Falcon 2000 took to the air on March 4, 1993.

EASA simultaneously approved use of Dassault's proprietary, award-winning EASy II avionics suite on Falcon 2000 EASy series aircraft. All in-service versions of the Falcon 2000 equipped with EASy cockpits (EX, DX, and LX) will eventually receive the EASy II upgrade once corresponding service bulletins are approved.

Among the new options and enhancements offered by EASy II are a Synthetic Vision System (SVS); improved display symbology; XM Weather; Flight Management System (7.1) improvements; dual Jeppesen charts; a Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS); ADS-B out; and WAAS and EGNOS LPV approaches.
