BRIEF HISTORY – FALCON 8X
DASSAULT FALCON 8X (2016-PRESENT)
The Dassault Falcon 8X is the flagship aircraft of Dassault Falcon, Dassault Aviation’s civilian division. The Falcon 8X was unveiled at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in May 2014. The 8X is a larger variant of the Falcon 7X, which was developed from the Falcon 900 platform. The prototype Falcon 8X flew for the first time in February 2015, and the first 8X was delivered to its first private customer in October 2016. Perhaps the most noticeable feature of the 8X is its three-engine propulsion system, with Dassault Falcon being the sole manufacturer of three-engine business jets.
CABIN COMFORTS – FALCON 8X
The Falcon 8X’s cabin is an exceptional place to be. Most configured for charter have 14 chairs spread across three areas of the cabin, with six completely flat beds. With the longest cabin of any Dassault Falcon in the sky (13 meters in length), every square meter of the cabin is utilized efficiently, resulting in what Dassault claims is the industry’s most versatile cabin. Equipped with the FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system, you have complete control over the cabin environment from any location within (yes, even if you are lying in bed). If you choose the Skybox, you may store iTunes video and music on a server that is remotely accessible throughout the cabin.With a maximum cabin altitude of 6,000 feet while at cruising altitude of 51,000 feet and a cabin altitude of 3,900 feet while flying at 41,000 feet, this is far lower than any airliner. This, together with the cabin’s incredibly low noise level of 49 dB, ensures that you may work, rest, or sleep in the most pleasant setting imaginable and step off the 8X feeling refreshed and recharged, just like your devices will be with increased connectivity throughout the cabin.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – FALCON 8X
Three Pratt & Whitney Canada PW300 engines each delivering 6,722 lbs of thrust power the Falcon 8X. (20,166 lbs total). With over 12 million hours of proven, high-reliability operation, you can cruise confidently knowing the PW300’s will not disappoint. The PW300 engines are capable of propelling the Falcon 8X to a top cruise speed of 600 knots, a range of 6,450 nautical miles.This range enables the 8X to fly nonstop between Europe and North America, South America, Asia, and any destination in Africa. The 8X requires just 6,000 feet of runway for take-off and 2,150 feet for landing at its maximum take-off weight of 73,000 pounds, which means that it can not only reach London City Airport, but also more than 500 airports across the United States thanks to its incredible performance. Despite having an additional engine, the 8X is up to 35% more fuel efficient than its competitors, lowering total operational expenses. The 8X wing utilizes additional moving control surfaces, including three leading edge slats, three airbrakes, and two flaps, to provide an ultra-smooth ride. Truly a difference you can feel or should I say, not feel. The Falcon 8X is unfazed by steep approach angles, steep climb-out rates nor extreme heat and or humidity. And it outperforms both in terms of range. It can fly nonstop to Mumbai or Chicago from London City’s 3,934-foot (1,200-meter) runway. Alternatively, it can depart from Eagle, Colorado, at an elevation over 6,500 feet (1,980 meters), and fly nonstop to Geneva, Switzerland.The Falcon 8X is capable of landing at 85% of its maximum takeoff weight. This implies that you may fuel up at your home base and make a short hop before flying a lengthier leg of over 4,600 nautical miles (8,519 kilometers) without refueling. It’s a skill that can help you save money on domestic fuel while also increasing mission flexibility.
FLIGHT DECK – FALCON 8X
The cockpit has been fully remodeled and equipped with the most advanced avionics suite available. The Falcon 8X is equipped with the Falcon’s next-generation EASY flight deck, with an optional wide-screen head-up display. This HUD combines augmented and synthetic vision to provide a significant increase in situational awareness in low-light circumstances. FalconEye, as it is known, was certified in 2018 for approaches in poor visibility conditions up to 100 feet.2020 models will see the introduction of a new configuration using two head-up displays. The 8X is also equipped with Honeywell’s next-generation 3D color weather radar, which has better turbulence detection capabilities. When combined with the 8X’s high altitude capability, you will avoid inclement weather, resulting in an extraordinarily smooth trip.
