Dassault Falcon 2000EX

Adding vertical fins to the end of each wing on the Falcon 2000LX is a minor adjustment that achieves major results. The carbon-fiber winglets improve the aircraft’s aerodynamic capability enough to noticeably boost the efficiency beyond that of the French manufacturer’s EX model. Climb speed has increased as much as 15 percent, which helps the twin-engine LX achieve a transoceanic range sufficient to fly nonstop from New York to Moscow or from London to Dubai. Features carried over from the EX model include the spacious cabin, the reliable Pratt & Whitney Canada engines, and the Honeywell EASy advanced flight deck.
