All Current Production Falcons Now Certified For Steep Approach
The FAA has approved steep approaches on all Dassault Falcon 900 EASy (900EX EASy/DX/LX ) and Falcon 2000 EASy (2000EX EASy/DX/LX) series models. Both model series had already received steep approach certification from EASA. With the most recent approvals, the entire current production Falcon fleet is now certified for steep approaches, which permits aircraft to operate at restricted airports with approach angles of up to 6 degrees.
"With the ability to make steep approaches into challenging airports, while complying with noise abatement procedures, Falcons continue to be the most flexible and capable of business aircraft," said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon. "Dassault Falcon is the only business aircraft manufacturer to have both EASA and FAA steep approach approval for all of its in-production models."
The Falcon 2000EX EASy aircraft retrofitted with autobrakes, and the 2000LX, which has autobrakes as standard equipment, are certified to operate out of London City Airport as are the Falcon 900 series of aircraft. London City Airport (LCY), in the heart of London is a popular destination, because of the importance of the city as a financial hub. Other airports requiring steep approach certification, and now accessible to the Falcon fleet, include Lugano-Agno (ICAO: LSZA) with a 6.65 degree approach angle and Sion airport (ICAO: LSGS), both in Switzerland.
