Dassault Falcon has received certification from both the European Aviation Safety Agency and the US Federal Aviation Administration for the newest member of the Falcon family of business jets, the 4,750nm (8,790km) Falcon 900LX.
The large-cabin Falcon 900LX is based on the Falcon 900EX, with enhanced performance and economy. The Falcon 900LX burns 35-40% less fuel than other aircraft in its class because of advanced lightweight structures, an extremely efficient wing as well as Aviation Partners' blended winglets. At its maximum take-off weight, the Falcon 900LX climbs to 39,000ft (11,900m) ) in just 20min.
"The Falcon 900LX delivers the next evolution of enhancements to the successful Falcon 900EX," says John Rosanvallon, president and chief executive of Dassault Falcon. "The improvements to its range, performance and efficiency set the standard in its class and make it a highly desirable business tool."
