Depending on the number of people who will be going along, this could be the ideal solution for you. Here are some basics about the Falcon 2000 and its variants that you should know. After looking them over, you’ll want to find out a little more.
A Little History
The original Falcon 2000 made the first flight on March 4, 1993. At that point, the model was still in beta testing. It would be another couple of years before the commercial production began.
Using key features from the Falcon 900, the 2000 sought to improve on the design and make it more user friendly for passengers. The planning also involved creating a jet that was more energy efficient and capable of traveling longer distances between refueling stops.
The design proved to be popular, resulting in over 600 jets being produced by 2018. Along with use by corporations, private parties, and charter operators, the Falcon 2000 has also been used by a number of government and military operators. That includes operators in France, Japan, Bulgaria, and Thailand.
What You Should Know About Performance
The Falcon 2000 can reach speeds of up to Mach 0.86. The range, assuming a total of eight passengers, is just under 3,800 miles. A cruising speed of 529 mph is possible, while the 2000 can manage a stall speed of 155 mph. The fuel capacity of 1,814 US gallons allows the jet to cover quite a bit of distance before refilling becomes necessary.
Features You Will Enjoy
Room is one of the benefits that come with the Falcon 2000. The cabin can comfortably accommodate up to 19 passengers and still have room for a couple of attendants. The jet can be operated by a team of two pilots, with ample room for them to move around. The passenger seating is ample and includes padded seats that provide plenty of support for the back and neck. People who are taller will also find that the amount of leg room is equal to and in some cases superior to the space provided in first class commercial flights.
Making the Most of Your Reservation
As with any type of charter flight, it pays to go with an option that includes plenty of safety features. Charter services using this jet often include amenities like in-flight meals, Internet access, entertainment options, and spaces to work if the mood strikes. By working with the service to come up with a jet that meets your needs, always provide details about the number of people in your party, any special dietary needs, and other elements that would make the flight pleasant for everyone.
Do find out if the service offers the Falcon 2000 in any of it’s variants. If so, you will want to book it for your next flight and see how things go. There’s a good chance that once you try this jet, you may never want to settle for any other type of charter aircraft again.
