The original Falcon 2000 was first delivered to customers in 1995 after the highly successful Falcon 50 series was launched. Dassault’s aim was to develop a large cabin jet with operating costs closer to the mid-cabin and supermid-cabin jets on the market at the time. The Falcon 2000 delivered a cabin which is 75% larger than the Falcon 50 super-mid jet and is about 72% of the GIV large cabin jet. Operating costs are about 30% less than both the GIV and Falcon 50 and 10% to 15% more than the Hawker 800XP mid-cabin jet. The 3,500 mile range of the Falcon 2000 is an impressive when compared to the mid or supermid categories but still significantly less than competing large cabin jets.
231 Falcon 2000’s were produced up until 2006 when it was superseded by the Falcon 2000EX which dramatically improved the range to just over 4,500 miles. Useful load, which is the weight of passengers and baggage the aircraft can carry when fuel tanks are full, increased from a little over 1k lbs. to just under 2.5k lbs. Speed was also improved from 515 mph to 541 mph. Additional upgrades were make the the 2000EX in 2004 including avionics and pressurization systems and remarketed as the Falcon 2000EX Easy.
Several improved versions where marketed after the 2000EX when it was replaced in 2007 with the Falcon 2000DX including the 2000LX, 2000LXS and 2000S which is still in production today.

NTSB Record Search
We did not find any accidents past 2007 involving the Falcon 2000EX and only one for the Falcon 2000 which occurred in Las Vegas, NV in 2015. The accident resulted from a failed hydraulic braking system. The pilots were completing their checklist and when the jet was un-chalked, it rolled down a hill in to a Falcon 20 and a King air where it finally came to rest. No injuries were reported and the operator of the jet was SC Aviation.
