Aircraft History

The Falcon 2000 shares the 900's wing and forward fuselage. It is a twin-engine transcontinental business jet with a cabin 7-foot shorter than the Falcon 900. The CFE738 engine was developed specifically for the Falcon 2000 through a partnership consisting of General Electric and AlliedSignal, known as CFE.
 
Another noticeable design change between the 900 and 2000 is the rear fuselage. Changes to the wing include a modified leading edge and the inboard slats have been removed. The cockpit has a Collins four-screen electronic flight instrument system avionics system with optional Flight Dynamics head-up displays. The 2000 series (including the 2000EX, 2000EX Easy and Falcon 2000DX) is Dassault’s best-selling aircraft, especially with fractional owners.
 
The first flight of the 2000 occurred on March 4, 1993, and FAA certification was received in 1994.
