The Dassault Falcon 2000 is a French Business jet and a member of Dassault Aviation's Falcon business jet line, and is a twin-engine, with transcontinental range.
The Falcon 2000 shares the 900's wing and forward fuselage, but there are a number of design changes. From the start the Falcon 2000 was designed with a range of 5560km (3000nm) in mind, which is less than the transcontinental 900's range. This design range removed the need for the redundancy of three engines for long range overwater flights, allowing the two new CFE738 engines to be fitted, which offer considerable maintenance and operating economics benefits. The CFE738 engine was developed specifically for the Falcon 2000 by a partnership of General Electric and AlliedSignal, known as CFE. Meanwhile, the 2000's fuselage is 1.98m (6ft 6in) shorter than the 900's and so houses less fuel, passengers and baggage.
Longer range 2009 variant of the Falcon 2000EX EASy, with the addition of Aviation Partners Blended Winglets, giving it a range capability of 4000 NM. The same winglets are certified for the entire Falcon 2000 series as a retrofit kit.
Replacement for the long range 2000LX to be offered in 2014, adding the short runway features of the 2000S.
