Corporate Eagle expanded its fractional fleet with the addition of the Dassault Falcon 2000. Corporate Eagle recently took delivery of the first of four pre-owned Falcon 2000s to be used for fractional operations. The Waterford, Mich.-based membership, fractional and managed aircraft operator invested close to $1 million in upgrades to the aircraft and said all four will be identical. 

The Falcon 2000s join four Falcon 2000s already in Corporate Eagle’s managed fleet. “Corporate Eagle has established the expertise, the talent and the resources necessary to launch and maintain a Falcon 2000 fractional program through operating our existing four managed Falcon 2000s,” said president and CEORick Nini.

The aircraft marks the third aircraft type in Corporate Eagle’s fleet, joining the Hawker 800XP and King Air B200. Corporate Eagle displayed its newest fleet member late last week during the Oakland County International Airport’s Air Transportation Expo, which was held in conjunction with the Michigan Business Aviation Association. Corporate Eagle has made the aircraft available to its existing and new southeastern Michigan-based members, which have increased in number from 20 to 40 since 2010, it said. As a result, the company has expanded its staff by 20 people, to 54, to handle the additional business
