Dassault Falcon Falcon 900LX

    The 900LX, the latest iteration in this model line, was certified in July 2010. The aircraft sports a distinctive third engine that provides extra performance to handle short runways and high altitudes, even in hot weather. Despite the extra engine, the 900LX burns up to 40 percent less fuel than other jets in this range, the company says. New range-boosting blended winglets distinguish this model from the earlier EX. The cabin is the same, pampering passengers with fully articulating cabin seats that move on tracks to adjust to various needs during flight. The EASy flight deck reduces pilot workload while enhancing situational awareness.
