Falcon 2000DX Certified
Dassault's Falcon 2000DX has been certified by both EASA and the FAA and the first one is already at the company's completion center in anticipation of an entry to service by early 2008. The 2000DX is an update of the Falcon 2000, which entered service in 1989. “The Falcon 2000DX fills an important niche in the Falcon product line,” CEO John Rosanvallon said in a news release “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.” One of the features of the jet is the ability to land with almost-full fuel tanks. That allows the aircraft to flown on short hops to pick up passengers before heading off on a long-haul flight 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," the news release said.
