West Star Modifies Falcon 2000 to Unique 13-Passenger Configuration

Falcon 2000 Reconfig 1 251West Star has reconfigured a Falcon 2000 to a unique 13-passenger configuration. The Falcon 2000 is normally configured for eight or 10 passengers.

The reconfiguration required fabricating a new, reduced size RH galley and LH aux galley/entertainment center, shifting the forward cabin bulkhead/door forward, and extending all the side ledges and window panels. The aft cabin bulkhead was also modified to offset the new door location resulting from the new conference group

Additionally structural modifications were required below and above the cabin floor to accommodate the new loading. Engineering support was provided by West Star’s in-house engineering group and on-staff DER. Final certification for the reconfiguration was completed via an FAA Form 337.

The final touch was all new veneers, soft goods, countertops, plating, and switch panels for the new seating configuration.

“This is the first time we have completed a Falcon 2000 in this increased capacity configuration stated James McCann, Interior manager. The OEM may have delivered one in the 13-passenger capacity but it is a unique configuration.”
