The large-cabin Falcon 900LX is the latest in the Falcon 900 series. This newest model offers an improved range and less fuel consumption than its predecessor, the Falcon 900EX. The addition of winglets designed by Aviation Partners reduces drag and thereby cuts fuel burn by 5% to 7% while also reducing time to climb as compared to the Falcon 900EX.
As of August 2017, 22% of the Falcon 900LX were purchased pre-owned by their current owners, the other 78% new. 13.6% are for sale with half of those (50%) under an exclusive broker agreement. When for sale, the average time on the market is 401 days.
The Falcon 900LX is the seventh Falcon 900 series model built and was introduced as a performance enhanced version of the Falcon 900EX, receiving certification from the FAA and EASA in July 2010. A total of 61 Falcon 900LX aircraft have been manufactured with 59 in operation worldwide.
There are 59 Falcon 900LX aircraft in operation today. All of these are wholly owned (59). 18.6% of the 59 are currently leased. North America has the largest percentage (55%), followed by Europe (27%) and Asia (16%).
