The Falcon 2000 is a business jet made by the French company Dassault. The aircraft is the latest in the line of aircraft manufactured in the Falcon line and features several significant changes from its predecessor, the Falcon 900 trijet.
Instead of the 3 engines that power the Falcon 900, the Falcon 2000 uses 2 tail-mounted engines. It was designed to have a range of roughly 3,000 nautical miles and cruise comfortably at a little over 400 knots, making it perfect for transcontinental trips such as from New York to Los Angeles. Using just two engines reduces the cost of both operating and maintaining the plane.
As a corporate jet, the Falcon 2000 can be configured to seat anywhere from 8 to 12 passengers. The interior of the cabin is spacious for 8 passengers and still quite comfortable when equipped to transport 12 passengers. The cabin itself measures 7.98 meters in length, 2.34 meters in width and is 1.88 meters in height.
Whether you are flying to a business meeting or just taking a vacation, the Falcon 2000 will remove much of the hassle associated with commercial airline flights. You won't have to deal with the sometimes lengthy check-in process or wait for hours to board as is the case at most major airports. The Falcon 2000 can take off and land at many smaller airports around the country.
Being able to drive up 20 minutes before your flight, check in and board the plane is a great time saver which is particularly valuable to corporate executives. In addition, smaller airports are usually located closer to your final destination.
While traveling, there is opportunity to discuss business, plan for a meeting or just relax and enjoy a nice meal. Cost is a little more than a first class ticket on a commercial jet, but the time savings and degree of privacy makes hiring a Falcon 2000 a smart business decision for many corporations and their valuable executives.
