Oct. 23, 2009, Orlando, Fla.
– Dassault Falcon recently delivered the 100th Falcon 900EX EASy
aircraft into service. As of September 30, 2009, the 4,500 nm Falcon
900EX EASy fleet had performed over 80,000 takeoffs and landings and
accrued 157,000 flight hours. Powered by three highly efficient
Honeywell TFE731-60 engines, the Falcon 900EX EASy is the category
leader in both airport performance and fuel efficiency.

900EX EASy was certificated in December 2003 and features the award
winning EASy flight deck. Today, there are 321 Falcon aircraft in
operation with the EASy flight deck, “Efficiency has long been an
important focus for us,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of
Dassault Falcon. “We believe the EASy flight deck offers the most
efficient and safe way to manage cockpit resources. The Falcon aircraft
operating with the EASy flight deck are a strong testament to the
intrinsic advantages of our program.”

EASy II for the Falcon 900EX
The latest iteration of the EASy flight deck – EASy II – will include
new options that further enhance crew situational awareness and
aircraft operational safety. These features include a synthetic vision
system, the Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS), an optional
Automatic Descent Mode, XM Graphical Weather, Required Navigation
Performance – Special Aircraft Aircrew Authorization Required
(RNPSAAAR) >0.1, and WAAS LPV.

The EASy flight deck was
originally developed around Honeywell’s Primus Epic system in the
mid-1990s in an effort to create a fully integrated cockpit management
system and to foster improved situational awareness. Its “T”-shaped
configuration of four 14.1-inch LCD screens has many benefits for the
crew. Tactical information needed to fly the aircraft is displayed in
front of each pilot on their own primary display unit. Strategic
information, such as navigational functions and checklists, are shared
on the two vertically-stacked centrally located multifunction display
units, to ensure the flight crew works in tandem and facilitating
safety as each sees the other’s inputs.


Falcon 900 History…
Originally conceived in the 1980s, the Falcon 900 was proposed at a
time when the scope of business aviation was expanding to include more
transatlantic destinations. Greater range was a prerequisite but also,
larger cabins and greater margins of safety. The Falcon 900 was the
first, and remains the only, airplane in its class with a three engine
design offering unmatched airport performance and increased peace of
mind, especially on long over water flights. The Falcon 900 family also
benefits from being the most fuel efficient airplane in its class by a
wide margin.

In the cabin, the standard layout of the Falcon
900 includes three seating areas and a large baggage compartment
accessible while in-flight. The Falcon 900 features a comfortable cabin
width of seven feet eight inches and a cabin height of six feet two
inches. The roomy proportions of its cross section became so popular it
was adopted on the Falcon 2000 family and the Falcon 7X.
