Dassault is preparing to deliver the first Falcon 2000DX next month to an undisclosed US-based customer. The aircraft, a shorter-range derivative of the 2000EX, will be handed over at the airframer's US completion facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. Dassault launched the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C-powered 2000DX in late 2005 as a replacement for the Falcon 2000 and clinched European and US approval for the large-cabin aircraft two years later. Operating costs are estimated to be 5% less than that of the Falcon 2000 and has been developed for customers with less-extensive city-pair requirements, says Dassault.
