Beijing Red Cross Emergency Medical Center, commonly known as 999, is an International Red Cross Association dedicated to providing critical pre-hospital medical services and has been among the pioneers in the Chinese air ambulance field.

The organization has a full digital command center, and staffed by more than 100 medical professionals. It was the first air medevac provider in China to launch a three-dimensional rescue package combining ambulances, helicopters, and fixed-wing aircraft. In the decade it has been in operation, it has provided pre-hospital rescue and medical treatment service for more than  3 million patients.

The LX and its short field sister aircraft, the Falcon LXS and S, are the latest of seven different Falcon 2000 models that have come off the assembly line since the big twin was introduced two decades ago.

The 2000 remains the most popular business jet in its segment, with more than 550 aircraft currently in service around the world.

The New Castle facility offers a full range of refitting and maintenance services for corporate jets and related aircraft.
