The Falcon 2000 is capable of transcontinental range at great airspeeds. At 39,000 feet, the Falcon 2000 is capable of speeding along at Mach 0.85 or 85% the speed of sound. The Falcon 2000 has a maximum cruising altitude of 47,000 feet! The Falcon 2000 is able to travel 3,450 miles, transporting 8 passengers at Mach 0.80. The range of the Falcon 2000 can be increased to 3,594 miles at a cruising airspeed of Mach 0.75.
The Falcon 2000 is operated by a crew of two pilots. The most popular cabin layout allows 8 passengers to travel in luxurious comfort. Another cabin layout option allows 12 passenger seats with amble room for all.
The Falcon 2000 development program used the same wing and forward fuselage of the famed Falcon 900 tri-jet. The Falcon 2000 was specifically designed with a 3,500 mile target range. The design range eliminated the need for a third jet engine, installed on the Falcon 900, for long range, overwater flights. The twin jet design allowed new, CFE 738 engines to be installed that dramatically reduced maintenance and operating costs. The CFE 738 engines were specifically designed for the Falcon 2000. General Electric and Allied Signal combined resources for the engine project and the name CFE was the designation.
The Falcon 2000 cabin is 6 feet, 6 inches shorter than the cabin of the Falcon 900. The 2000 carries slightly less fuel, baggage, and passengers than its predecessor, the Falcon 900. The design of the Falcon 900, tri-jet was aerodynamically efficient, but with the removal of the third engine, the empennage, or tail feathers, of the Falcon 2000 design needed modification for maximum aerodynamic efficiency. The solution was creating an empennage that was area ruled. This means the shape of the tail section would look like the top of a Coke bottle. The “Coke bottle” design was made possible by use of “Catia”, a three dimensional, computer aided design program.
The Falcon 2000 is the perfect aircraft to charter or acquire for trips across America for a team of 8 to travel quickly, comfortably, and quietly within a luxuriously spacious cabin.
Had a great flight yesterday. The pilots were amazing. Got us thru a storm and wind with hardly a bump. Very impressive.
The trip was great. We were scheduled to depart at 9:00am. My parents arrived at the Bermuda Dunes Airport around 8:15. The pilots were ready a long time before that. They asked if we wanted to leave early and we got my father loaded up in the jet and left 8:30am. You couldn’t do that with a commercial flight. The pilots were very courteous and professional. They made us feel safe and comfortable before the flight and during the flight.
I used to charter from other companies, until I met the personnel from Desert Jet. I haven’t flown with anybody else in the last 10 years. Desert Jet is an organization that puts safety first, and I appreciate their professionalism.
They are professional; they care about what they do. It’s a top notch organization right here in our backyard.
Thanks for the super crisp, professional, and friendly service…will definitely use you guys again!
Thanks for taking care of (my associate), he was delighted.
I just wanted to send an email about our wonderful flying experience with the company. We booked a flight for four to San Francisco for April 15 – 18… What an absolutely great holiday getaway. Your staff are so wonderful, the pilot was great and the overall experience was above expectations. We are hoping to go again this fall and sure hope we can make our dates work to fly with you. Thanks for making our weekend such a memorable holiday for all us.
We had a great trip and hope to be able to do it again. Love the pilots!
Thank you all so much for a fabulous flight! What a first class operation! Archie panted the whole way but T-bone acted as though this was “normal” for him! We loved the two pilots….what great guys! I look forward to a long relationship! Thank you again for everything….especially the Bones and Scones cookies.
Thanks again for making the past year of charters truly a great experience. It’s enjoyable to business with such a well-organized and professional company. You and the team at Desert Jet make the following business statement a reality – “committed to excellence in customer service”.
