Falcon multi-missions aircraft
Falcons fly demanding missions every day. Flying into short mountain airstrips, crossing oceans, and sometimes landing in near-zero/zero conditions. But Falcons also perform specialized roles for governments, medevac operators and scientific organizations. In fact, about 10 percent of the entire Falcon fleet are out there, day in and day out, supporting those vital missions. What makes Falcons such good multi-missions aircraft? High flexibility, impressive payloads, robust construction, advanced flight controls, and an engineering team that can adapt them to unique requirements. Dassault Aviation has delivered 200+ multi-mission aircraft in more than 40 countries.
The Falcon 10X is an aircraft of enormous volume, ultra-long range and unlimited potential for enhancing productivity. What most distinguishes the Falcon 10X is the sheer dimensions of its cabin. It will simply be the biggest and most comfortable on the market, offering far greater flexibility with a wide selection of interior configurations. Rather than four cabin zones of equal length, operators can smartly configure the cabin with different zone lengths to create completely customized interiors. For example, operators can create an expanded dining/conference area, a dedicated entertainment area with a large-screen monitor, a private stateroom with a fixed queen-size bed (and room to walk around it), or a master suite with a private stand-up shower. The baggage compartment is the largest in its class, with more than enough space for a transoceanic journey and conveniently accessible in flight.
The Falcon 10X is powered by business aviation’s most advanced and efficient engine, the Rolls-Royce Pearl® 10X. It is the latest, largest and most powerful version in the Pearl series delivering more than 18,000 pounds of thrust. It gives the 10X the power to leap off runways and climb swiftly above air traffic and turbulence. And it burns much cleaner for more efficient operation and lower emissions.
The Falcon 900LX is powered by three Honeywell TFE731-60 engines. Reliable and time-tested, these engines deliver more power with lower fuel consumption, and require less maintenance. Trijet design largely accounts for the distinctive ramp appeal of the Falcon 900LX. But the beauty of this proven performer runs through every aspect of its rugged airframe, advanced aerodynamics, cutting-edge avionics and time-tested systems updated for today’s environment.
The Falcon 900LX’s EASy II flight deck dramatically assures optimum crew coordination and situational awareness, presenting pilots with everything from flight planning and automated checklists to the aircraft’s precise position, situation and environment through an innovative graphical interface that allows pilots to work together ‘heads up’.
The 2000LXS is powered by two, highly-proven Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C engines incorporating advanced technology for increased durability, lower emissions and lower operating costs, helping the aircraft burn up to 20% less fuel than competitors. Less time between overhauls is another cost advantage.
The ultra long-range Falcon 10X was launched in 2021. Larger than some regional jets, its cabin measures 2.77 m (9 feet 1 inch) wide, 2.03 m (6 feet 8 inches) high. The 7,500 nm (13,890 km) range aircraft will have Dassault-designed, pace-setting technologies, including the next generation NeXus flight deck and a new, all-composite wing. Certification is scheduled for 2025.
