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 and strong, hot and high
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.
The tri-jet advantage
Thanks to its three engines, which shorten transoceanic routes, the Falcon 8X flies you wherever you are going faster. They also contribute to the 8X’s slow and stable approach speed — a mere 106 knots (197 kph). And its three-engine performance margins allow takeoffs from shorter runways.
More Range After Short Hops
The Falcon 8X can land at 85% of its maximum landing weight. So you can fuel up at home base and make a short hop before flying a longer leg of more than 4,500 nm (8,334 km) without refueling. It’s a capability that can save you money on home-based fuel and also boost your mission flexibility.
Falcon 8X direct operating costs are as much as 35% lower than those of competing jets. And thanks to its optimized airliner-type MSG-3 maintenance program, time between 8X major inspections is 800 hours or 12 months, giving you greater use of your airborne asset.
Not just bigger, better
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. Landing gear has been reinforced to provide for additional payload.
A visionary flight deck
Totally redesigned, the Falcon 8X cockpit will feature a new generation of EASy flight deck and offer 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.
PW307D engines: more thrust with less fuel
At 6,722 pounds (29.9 kN), these enhanced Pratt & Whitney Canada turbofans deliver 5% more thrust, yet they also lower fuel consumption. Beyond delivering more pounds of thrust for each pound of fuel, they reduce NOx emissions 30% below today’s most stringent standards. The PW300 series has more than 12 million hours of proven, highly reliable operation.
More moving control surfaces
The 8X wing takes advantage of more moving control surfaces, including three leading edge slats, three airbrakes and two flaps. Dassault’s latest generation of digital flight control technology ensures smooth and precise flight path control and flight envelope protection.
More cabin and more flexible cabin
This is our longest cabin. And every inch is used to advantage. 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.
Wherever you are, you have control
The FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system gives you control over your environment from anywhere in the cabin, using your Apple® devices. You can track flight progress. There’s even an app that lets you call up a virtual moving map of any area around you by simply pointing your iPad® in its direction. As an option, you can also get Skybox™, the wireless media server with vast iTunes video and music capacity.
Benefits you can feel
While current airliners and even some business jets have cabin altitudes of 6,000 to 8,000 feet, the Falcon 8X keeps you at a comfortable 3,900 while cruising at 40,000 feet. So you feel better on board — and less jet lag after arrival. Noise level is also low at a whisper-quiet 52 dB.
Long on comfort and choice
Three extra feet can accommodate a lot more living space. And how you use it is up to you. Opt for a very comfortable three-lounge cabin with a shower aft and crew rest provisions forward. Go shorter on the entryway to add even more lounge space. Or select a large entryway with spacious, lie-flat crew quarters and a truly grand galley for multiple meals. There are over 30 different cabin layouts from which to choose. Let your personal taste, your typical mission profile, and our design team be your guides.
