French company Dassault Aviation presented its recent model Falcon 2000S in Geneva Fair. The aircraft was designed to meet expectations of the most demanding customers in terms of flight range, efficiency, effectiveness, style and functionality.
The inside design of the machine has been taken care by the BMW Designworks office who cleverly used the interior space creating a very interesting thus practical styling. Bright colors combined with densely spaced windows visually expand the aircraft cabin. The 2000S interior–which uses visual elements such as ambient lights to optimize cabin space–is available in three variations: Sedona, which features earthy beige colors; Havana, which offers a palette of browns; and Alpine, which contrasts the colors of an alpine peak with the darker colors of earth and rock.
Bavarian designers thought also about comfort and practical approach for long-distance travel arranging a series of convenient settings,chairs, table tops or screens. That is why a place hitherto served as working space easily alter into a haven of relaxation and rest for up to 10 travelers.
With full fuel, the Falcon 2000S will have the largest payload in its class at 1,850 lbs; a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of 41,000 lbs with a balanced field length of 4,450 feet which is up to 500 feet less than competing aircraft.
At Mach.80, the Falcon 2000S will have a range of 3,350 nm (standard aircraft, 6 pax, NBAA IFR reserves, 85% Boeing Annual Winds). It will climb directly to 41,000 feet in 19 minutes, reach a mid-cruise altitude of 45,000 feet and offer a certified ceiling of 47,000 feet. The aircraft will also be able to land at 95% of its MTOW, or about 39,300 lbs enabling it to tanker more fuel. Additionally, with an approach speed of only 108 knots and an advanced autobraking system, the Falcon 2000S will be capable of landing at airports with challenging and steep approaches and shorter runways such as London City Airport. At a typical end-of-flight profile, the Falcon 2000S will need just 2,600 feet of runway, or the equivalent length needed for a typical turboprop aircraft.
