The Falcon 900EX entered service in 1996 as the latest upgrade to the original Falcon 900, following on from the Falcon 900B. Much like its predecessors, the 900EX was a tri-jet that belonged to the category of Super Large Jets but it was designed to be a long-range version of the 900 and 900B. Dassault designed the 900EX with more modern avionics, upgraded engines and greater fuel capacity to provide it with a maximum range of over 5,000 miles. As with the whole Falcon 900 range, the 900EX offers an extremely comfortable and spacious cabin that can be partitioned into 3 separate sections. The 900EX has the capacity to accommodate up to 14 passengers but is usually configured to cater for 12 in a double Club 4 arrangement, 3-seater sofa and an individual seat.
