Three fuel efficient Honeywell TFE731-60 turbofan engines deliver 5000 Ib of thrust each (ISA+17C). The Falcon 900LX’s trijet configuration enhances safety and efficiency while delivering high performance under difficult conditions.
The Falcon 900LX offers a big cabin within an externally compact fuselage. The center engine virtually eliminates separation draft behind the tailcone. The smart trijet configuration places thrust closer to the centerline lowering the critical Vmcand consequently takeoff speed while the center engine reverse thrust can be used a complete stop on short runways. The computer designed, low-drag wing is equipped with leading-edge slats and double-slotted Fowler flaps, giving the jet ability to safely operate around small airports.
