Falcon 6X

DIscover where a falcon can take you

Whether conducting business or cementing relationships, there is no alternative to meeting people in person. The Falcon’s excellent nonstop range and unique ability to land at small airports gets you closer to your destination.

Impressive range

Imagine flying from Los Angeles to London City, nonstop. Or New-York to Sao Paulo, Shanghai to Sydney. The Falcon 6X connects the most frequented international city pairs, nonstop. The 6X will change your perspective on what is possible with a large jet.

Remarkable field performance

With a balanced field length of 5,035 ft (1,535 m) with 8 passengers, and the ability to use much shorter airfields, the Falcon 6X can access significantly more airports than its competitors.

Land slowly and safely

As seductive as high-speeds may be, part of the value of a Falcon is a wide speed envelope. As with previous Falcon generations, the wing of the 6X is optimized for both high- and low-speed performance. Leading edge slats and trailing edge flaps yield remarkably low takeoff and approach speeds. In fact, typical (Vref) approach speed for the 6X is 109 knots. That’s up to 20 knots slower than most jets with comparable range and near the approach speed of some short-field turboprops.

Low-speed capability equates to greater safety margins on takeoff and landing. It also opens up more airports — very often the ones that are most convenient for you. With a balanced field length of 5,250 feet, the 6X can use more airports than competitors. It can fly farther from them, especially the most challenging fields such as Aspen or London City. Even with a partial fuel load, you’ll be amazed at the small airports you can use, including those with runways of less than 4,000 feet. 

Go fast, go far

The Falcon 6X has a maximum range of 10.186 nautical miles at its long-range cruise speed of Mach .80. Choose to fly at normal cruise of Mach .85 and still accomplish long, inter-continental missions with a range of 9,445 nautical miles. For coast-to-coast U.S. travel, or other trips of 3,000 nautical miles or more, you can fly even faster. Top speed is Mach .90.

Once you are up and away, you’ll want to fly fast. Fighter heritage means a fast, tough airplane, and like other Falcons, the 6X has no speed limitations in turbulence. Climb directly to 41,000 feet, which often helps Air Traffic Control provide more direct routings. During typical cruise altitudes of 43,000 to 47,000 on long range missions, you'll often be above the Jetstream in air that is usually silky smooth.
