In this month’s Aircraft Comparative Analysis, Mike Chase provides information on a pair of popular pre-owned Super Mid-Size business jets. How will the Dassault Falcon 2000 jet compare with the Gulfstream G200?

Over the following paragraphs, we’ll analyse the performance of the Dassault Falcon 2000 and Gulfstream G200 to see how they compare in the market. We’ll consider productivity parameters (including payload, range, speed, and cabin size), and give consideration to their current market values.

Accounting for the used pricing of the two featured jets, how much additional range, speed, and cabin volume would an extra $1.9m purchase? This is one of the questions we will seek to answer…

Dassault Falcon 2000

Dassault originally introduced the Falcon 2000 as the Falcon X in 1989. First flight came four years later in 1993, and the aircraft entered service in 1995.

The twin-engine Falcon 2000 is a slightly smaller development of the Falcon 900 tri-jet, with transcontinental range. It features a large stand-up cabin, General Electric CFE738-1-1B engines, and a Collins Pro Line 4 integrated avionics suite.

At the time of writing, there were 221 Dassault Falcon 2000 business jets in operation worldwide, seven of which were in shared ownership arrangements, and five in fractional ownership programs. Ten aircraft have been retired. Geographically, 80% of the Falcon 2000 fleet is based in the US.

Gulfstream G200

The IAI 1126 Galaxy first flew on Christmas Day, 1997, and deliveries began in 1999. Powered by a pair of 5,700lbst Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306 powerplants, this model was designed to seat 8 to 10 passengers in a stand-up cabin.

In May, 2001 General Dynamics (GD) announced the acquisition of Galaxy Aerospace from Israel Aerospace Company (IAI) which included the type certificates for the entire family of aircraft. When the deal closed, GD placed the family of aircraft with Gulfstream, renaming the IAI 1126 Galaxy the Gulfstream G200.

Ten years later, the final G200 rolled off the production line in 2011, after 250 units had been built. The Gulfstream G280 replaced it, with deliveries beginning in 2012.

At the time of writing, there were 237 Gulfstream G200 business jets in operation worldwide, 14 of which were in shared ownership arrangements. Thirteen G200s have been retired. Geographically, 76% of the Gulfstream G200 fleet is based in the US.
