Falcon 2000LXS Backgrounder

ORLANDO, Florida, October 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The 4,000 nm Falcon 2000LXS is the newest aircraft in the Falcon 2000 family and inherits the same qualities as its siblings: a spacious cabin, outstanding performance and efficiency, cutting edge technology and maximum flexibility.

The Falcon 2000LXS is built on the proven and capable Falcon 2000 platform, nearly 480 of which are in service around the world making it one of the most popular twin engine models in operation.  It offers inboard slats, an enhanced and proven engine, new cockpit aesthetics, next-generation EASy II flight deck and FalconCabin HD+, the most advanced cabin management system in business aviation.  No other aircraft in the 4,000 nm segment offers the same combination of airport performance, cabin design and efficiency.

Improved Performance with Inboard Slats

New inboard slats combine with outboards to provide the Falcon 2000LXS the agility to access some of the most demanding airfields while offering excellent range when flying out of them.

The Falcon 2000LXS utilizes the same proven wing design as other aircraft in the Falcon 900 family. This wing ensures a large flight envelope with a wide buffet boundary, enhancing safety and stability while permitting exceptional short field and hot and high altitude performance.

Unmatched Flexibility and Versatility

The Falcon 2000LXS can land at 90% of its maximum takeoff weight allowing it to hop from city-to-city then leap across the ocean without having to stop and refuel.

Like other aircraft in the Falcon family, the Falcon 2000LXS will be certified for steep approach permitting it to operate at restricted airports with approach angles of up to 6 degrees. In particular, it will have access to London City Airport -a challenging airport that requires special training and certification prior to use. Other airports requiring steep approach certification and that will be accessible to the Falcon 2000LXS, include Lugano-Agno (ICAO: LSZA) which has a 6.65 degree approach angle and Sion Airport (ICAO: LSGS), in Switzerland.
