Dassault’s military design heritage, combined with our experience in transonic and supersonic design, advanced 3D CAD/CAM techniques and intelligent use of sophisticated materials, gives all our aircraft a superior strength-to-weight ratio. Falcons have no life limits on primary structural components. Which means less maintenance and fewer replacements (and only Falcons come with no structurally related airspeed limits). The Falcon 2000 was the world’s first aircraft to be designed with a digital mock-up. This allowed our engineers to clearly visualize the general layout, how parts fit together and how to optimize the location of systems and equipment within the airframe well in advance of production.
