Tuesday 10 March 2020 Blog

Takeoff on the smallest runways, fly from London City to New York without any fuel stops: this jet will take you anywhere.

Dassault Aviation has found a new solution for private jet charters. In operation since the second half of 2016, the Falcon 8X is one of the midsized/small jets that has most distinguished itself throughout the years for performance, comfort, and safety.

This new generation jet is able to compete with the likes of Gulfstream and Bombardier (such as the Global 7500). An aircraft that perfectly combines the elegance of Dassault with the necessary must haves that come with the passing of time.

Taking full advantage of the latest technologies and teams of specialists, the Falcon 8X has resulted in a true gem of the skies, a testament to excellent manufacturing and design. With performances capable of satisfying the most demanding customers, whether looking to fly for business or leisure.

Technical characteristics of the Falcon 8X 

One of the distinct signatures of Dassault aircraft is the use of tri-reactors. Their jets sport three engines: two on each side of the tail section of the fuselage, and one bellow the vertical drift.

These engines allow the Falcon 8X to reach a maximum speed of 0.9 Mach and a cruising speed of 0.8 Mach, with a range of 11.945 km.

The choice reveals a multitude of advantages, particularly during takeoff and landing. The Falcon 8X guarantees excellent balance and control of the flight, even the most delicate flight phases can be handled seamlessly by the pilots, bypassing the usual turbulence and creating a flight experience rather unprecedented in comfort and convenience.

This jet can boast of a curated design, gracefully executed, with a fuselage 24.46 meters long, a height of 7.94 meters, and a width of 2.34 meters.

A wingspan of 26.29 meters contributes to the Falcon 8X’s impressive and regal appearance, confirming its stature as the undisputed prince of the sky.

Given its smaller dimensions and its three engines, the Falcon 8X is equipped to perform delicate maneuvers such as taking off and landing in confined runways.

It needs a fair minimum of 1.792 meters for take off, and only 683 meters on landing. Giving you the advantage of choosing among almost any runway in the world, bringing you closer to exactly where you need to be.

With an autonomy of 11.945 km, this jet is perfectly adapted for both transoceanic and intercontinental flights. Making it possible to reach your far-off destinations in a shorter period of time.

The Falcon 8X’s cabin: comfort and customization.

The mastery of Dassault Aviation is displayed by the carefully curated interior. With the possibility of customizing the aircraft from over 30 different layouts, this jet was made to meet your every need.

Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, chartering a Falcon 8X will let you choose from 30 cabin configurations, differing in materials, tools, and layout of the rooms.

Like most aircraft designed by Dassault, the Falcon 8X exchanges seating capacity for a high-quality experience.

It can seat up to 8 passengers comfortably, though among its configurations there are some allowing for the number of passengers to be extended to 11.

With a space of 13 x 1.88 x 2.34 meters, the Falcon 8X has demonstrated a meticulous use of every available inch.

Regardless of your chosen configuration, the Falcon 8X boasts a carefully selected range of the best armchairs and sofas on the market. Ensuring your flight will put both your mind and your body at ease, preventing any travel fatigue.

Further complimenting your flight experience, you will find:

  • The FalconCabin HD, a cabin control and management system which, in addition to providing a fast internet connection, allows for real-time tracking of your flight via GPS and the latest edition of Skybox, a wireless media server guaranteed to keep you relaxed and entertained.
  • An air recycling system, depressurization, and soundproofing will reduce flight stress to a minimum, make climbing to altitudes of over 15.000 meters almost imperceptible, and reduce external noise by up to 49 dB SIL, as well as renew the air cabin every 2 minutes.

Within the cockpit of the Falcon 8X

The Falcon 8x plans for a crew of 3: 2 pilots and a flight attendant.

The cockpit integrates the latest innovations with a vision system that combines synthetic and advanced solutions. More precisely, a HUD (Head-UP Display), an EVS (Enhanced Vision System), and an SVS (Synthetic Vision System).

The historic collaboration of Dassault Aviation and Honeywell was revisited on the Falcon 8X, with the addition of the latest innovation in flight safety. A colorized 3D system scanning real-time weather conditions, with advanced turbulence detection.

All this combines to make the Falcon 8X a compact and extremely reliable aircraft, built to satisfy your every need.
