Falcon 900LX Now Certified

  • Mary Grady

The new 900LX replaces the 900EX in Dassault’s line of Falcon business jets, offering the same quiet and spacious cabin—almost 40 feet long—as the EX, but with expanded range. The 900LX can fly almost 5,500 miles nonstop, far enough to reach Moscow from New York or Beijing from Paris. New winglets reduce drag and allow for faster climbs. The airplane’s advanced aerodynamics and reliable Honeywell jet engines ensure efficient fuel burn. The three-engine Falcon jets are known for robust performance at challenging airports—those with short runways or at high altitudes—such as Aspen/Pitkin County Airport in Colorado. Price tag is $42 million. (201.440.6700, www.falconjet.com)
