JET SET

The Falcon 8X is the epitome of luxury and comfort for point to point, effortless travel.

Stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved is a preoccupation that drives Dassault Falcon.

The latest result is the Falcon 8X. A new Falcon that can fly one farther, in greater comfort, and with even more efficiency.

The ultra-long range connects Hong Kong and Paris, London and Cape Town, Los Angeles and Beijing. Its cabin — the longest in the Falcon family — provides more comfort and a stunning choice of more than 30 distinct layouts. And thanks to overall design enhancements, the 8X is every bit as fuel efficient as the Falcon 7X. The Falcon 8X continues Falcon traditions of efficiency, performance, flexibility and comfort, while saving millions in total life cycle costs versus any rival. Once again, Dassalt Falcon stretches the boundaries of what a business jet can do.

With 6,450 nm (11,945 km) range and outstanding short-field performance, the 8X links important city pairs nonstop and accesses 500 more airports in the U.S. alone than its competitors. Then there’s the superlative airfield performance of the Falcon 8X, which adds even more reach beyond other aircraft in its class.

Steep approach angles and strong climb-out gradients are no problem for the Falcon 8X. Nor are hot and high conditions. And it delivers superior range from both. It is the only ultra-long-range business jet that can use London City’s 3,934 foot (1,200 m) runway. And after takeoff, it can fly nonstop to Dubai or New York. Or departing Eagle, Colorado, an elevation above 6,500 ft (1,980 m), it can fly nonstop to Geneva, Switzerland.

When designing the Falcon 8X, Dassault rethought all major structures and systems, adapting and optimizing them into an integrated, efficient airframe.

New internal wing architecture both lightens the wing structure and provides more room for fuel. New winglets reduce drag to boost efficiency. The fuselage houses more fuel without reducing passenger space.

Totally redesigned, the Falcon 8X cockpit features EASy III, a new generation of EASy flight deck and offers an optional wide-screen head-up display, integrating enhanced and synthetic vision for vastly improved situational awareness in low-visibility conditions.

It will also feature Honeywell’s next-generation 3D color weather radar system with enhanced turbulence detection capability.

Dassault’s latest generation of digital flight control technology ensures smooth and precise flight path control and flight envelope protection.

With over 30 possible layouts, this is the industry’s most flexible cabin and the one most likely to offer an interior solution that meets your exacting requirements. Noise and cabin altitude are low. Air quality is high. And connectivity is complete in this Wi-Fi environment, which is equipped with our latest FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system.

The FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system gives you control over your environment from anywhere in the cabin, using Apple devices. Passengers can track flight progress. There’s even an app that lets one call up a virtual moving map of any area around the aircraft by simply pointing the iPad in its direction. There is also the option of Skybox, the wireless media server with vast iTunes video and music capacity.
