The Falcon 2000 is the most recent part of the Falcon business plane line, and is a transcontinental reach, somewhat littler improvement of the Falcon 900 trijet

The Falcon 2000 shares the 900's wing and forward fuselage, yet there are various outline changes. From the begin the Falcon 2000 was composed on account of a scope of 5560km (3000nm, which is short of what the transcontinental 900's extent. This outline extent evacuated the requirement for the repetition of three motors for long run overwater flights, permitting the two new Cfe738 motors to be fitted, which offer extensive upkeep and working money making concerns profits. The Cfe738 motor was created particularly for the Falcon 2000 by an association of General Electric and Alliedsignal, known as CFE. In the mean time, the 2000's fuselage is 1.98m (6ft 6in) shorter than the 900's thus houses less fuel, travelers and gear.

An alternate detectable configuration change between the 900 and 2000 is the range ruled back fuselage. Dassault specialists found that the three motor design of the 900 to be aeromechanically effective, though the twin motor outline of the 2000 initially would have been similarly draggy. To battle this and diminish drag to sought levels Dassault planned a zone managed (or Coke container) back fuselage, utilizing its Catia three dimensional machine helped outline program.

Progressions to the wing incorporate an adjusted heading edge and the inboard supports have been evacuated, while the cockpit emphasizes a Collins four screen EFIS aeronautics framework with discretionary Flight Dynamics head-up showcases (permitting hand flown approaches in Cat II and Cat Iiia conditions).

Dassault has various industry accomplices in the Falcon 2000 system, premier of these being Alenia, which is a 25% danger offering accomplice. Alenia thusly has subcontracted some work to Dee Howard and Piaggio.

Dassault published it was creating the Falcon 2000, then known as the Falcon X, in June 1989. First and foremost flight happened on March 4 1993 and certificate was granted in November 1994. The main client conveyance happened in March 1995.
