Overview

The Falcon 900LX is the fifth and most current iteration of the popular Falcon 900 series.  The Falcon 900LX takes the improvements of the Falcon 900EX one step farther.  This includes a blended winglet design which increases range and fuel efficiency by up to 5%.  The 900LX began deliveries in 2010.  The 900LX fleet is over 30 aircraft and current corporate operators include Monsanto and Lake Capital.

Falcon 900LX Buying Guide

The Falcon 900LX is available pre-owned on the open market as well as new from Dassault.  A number of options are available to include avionics enhancements like heads-up display (HUD) and enhanced vision system (EVS).  Cabin options include cabin layout, internet access, and cabin entertainment systems.  Cabin configurations commonly include three “zones” with an aft
stateroom which can include a workstation, seats, or a couch convertible to a bed.  For aircraft nearing 6 years of age, careful consideration should be given to the “C” inspection which can be costly and timely.  An optional maintenance plan called FalconCare is available for the 900LX.  Engine maintenance plans for the engines (Honeywell MSP or JSSI) are also available.
