Dassault Falcon 8X has made its debut the French aerospace firm’s new $58 million ultralong-range business jet. Designed for European charter company Amjet Executive, it will be the first Falcon 8X used for chartered flights.
Billed as the next generation of its predecessor Falcon 7X, the newly unveiled airplane benefits from a longer range and a bigger cabin. The latter will be available in 30 different layouts buyers can choose from. The Falcon 8X has a travel range of up to 7,422 miles at a time and can reach a top speed of 425 mph. It has already received its EASA and FAA certification and is entering service right on schedule, two years after it was initially announced. Customers from about a dozen countries will be able to place additional deliveries.
The Falcon 8X is a dream-come-true for every avid traveller. It has a bigger cabin and a longer range for comfortable travel. Its state-of-the-art fly-by-wire cockpit relieves pilots of repetitive tasks and lets them focus on flight management instead. The new Falcon 8X is equipped with three turbofan engines, which make it flexible enough to take off from short runways and operate at airports in high elevations or hot climates. New aerodynamic winglets reduce drag and increase efficiency.
The cabin of the Falcon 8X is almost 43 feet long and 7.6 feet wide, providing plenty of space for a comfortable workspace as well as a restful night’s sleep and a shower. In different configurations, passengers are guaranteed a low noise level (just 52 dB or less) and a low cabin altitude of just 3,900 feet.
