Heavy jets, also referred to as large-cabin jets, are a class of business jet aircraft specifically designed for long-range travel and capable of carrying a larger number of passengers.

Featuring luxurious amenities such as hot catering and comfortable seating, they have extended range capabilities, making them ideal for intercontinental and transoceanic flights. With seating capacities ranging from 10 to 14 passengers, heavy jets offer a comfortable and lavish travel experience.

Falcon 2000LXS

The Falcon 2000LXS is a heavy business jet manufactured by Dassault Aviation, a French aerospace company. It is the successor to the Falcon 2000LX, offering improved performance, efficiency, and range due to its newly designed winglets.

It features two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C turbofan engines, providing it with a maximum range of around 4,000 nautical miles and a top speed of Mach 0.86. It can fly non-stop on transatlantic flights such as New York to Paris, or Los Angeles to London.

The cabin of the Falcon 2000LXS is known for its spaciousness and flexibility.

The Falcon 2000LXS incorporates advanced avionics, including the EASy II flight deck, which provides pilots with enhanced situational awareness and intuitive controls.
