Dassault received certification for the Falcon 900B in 1991. The "B" designation reflects the change to the -5BR version of the AlliedSignal (Honeywell) TFE731 turbofan in place of the -5AR engines of the earlier Falcon 900. The new engines provided 5.5 percent more takeoff thrust, 6.5 percent more thrust at altitude, and an improvement of about 2 percent in TSFC over that of the -5AR. A retrofit program allows the engines of earlier Falcon 900s to be upgraded to the -5BR turbofan. The Falcon 900B can accommodate as many as 18 passengers in a high-density layout, but is more commonly configured to seat between eight to 12 passengers in an executive arrangement. A full-size lavatory and galley are standard, along with all the amenities appropriate for the long stage length of an aircraft of this class.
The Dassault Falcon 900B has a range of 3,955 nautical miles. Type in your city or airport identifier for a visual representation of the NBAA IFR Range (NM) for this aircraft.
