The benchmark for the 21st century business jet

From its inception, the Falcon 7X was destined to be a revolutionary aircraft, introducing business aviation to the industry’s first Digital Flight Control System.
Like so many other aspects of the aircraft, its DFCS drew on Dassault’s 30 years
of military experience, especially its Rafale and Mirage 2000 programs.

The 7X would become the first business jet to use fighter jet technology with an elegant, whisper-quiet executive cabin.

 

No one had ever built such an advanced business jet. And no one has since.

Today, over 200 Falcon 7X aircraft are in service in 32 countries. The fleet has performed some 250,000 flight hours and presents excellent dispatch reliability.
And a growing number of operators worldwide are discovering they need not compromise small-jet agility and efficiency for long-range comfort and capability.
Now a mature and proven aircraft platform, the Falcon 7X is still the most advanced — still the business jet benchmark for the 21st century.

Redefining performance

The Falcon 7X is the most technologically advanced business jet in service anywhere in the world today. Sleek yet practical, it is redefining ownership, pilot and passenger performance. It is the new generation of business aircraft.

Flexible and cost effective

Unique flexibility allows the Falcon 7X to perform varied missions easily.
And with fuel consumption 15-30% lower than other jets in its class, it dramatically lowers operating costs.


Farther. Faster. And better connected.

The Falcon 7X is designed to fly 5,950 nm (11,019 km), linking city pairs such as Paris-Tokyo, Shanghai-Seattle, New York-Jeddah, and Johannesburg-London, with a payload of eight passengers and three crew. With a .90 Mach Maximum Operating Speed (MMO), the Falcon 7X can also cover shorter distances to get you faster where you need to be.

Slower, safer landings

When it comes to landing, slower is safer. At typical landing weight, the approach speed of the 7X is only 104 knots (193 km/h). It can land and stop in just 2,070 feet (630 m). As a result, it can access hundreds of airports other jets cannot, including those with hot and high conditions, steep approaches and stringent noise restrictions. The 7X is the only aircraft in its class able to reach New York, from London City Airport.


Agile and efficient

The 7X can land at almost 90 percent of its maximum takeoff weight. So it can perform multiple short and long flights without having to refuel.

New features

New to EASy II are improved display symbology with Synthetic Vision System, a temperature compensation update to the Flight Management System, and advanced Take Off and Go Around (TOGA) mode.

EASy II supports the latest communications protocols mandatory over a growing number of airspaces, including Automatic Dependant Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) out which reports aircraft position to supplement radar coverage; Aeronautical Telecommunication Network (ATN B1) Controller Pilots DataLink Communications (CPDLC) which reduces miscommunication by allowing Air Traffic Control (ATC) communicate with pilots via a text-based protocol.


New options

The LPV/GPS approaches available with EASy II permit lower minima than standard RNAV (GPS) approaches, significantly increasing the number of accessible airports, particularly in adverse weather conditions. Compatibility with the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) over the US and the European Geo Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS) means the number of airports at which the 7X can make precision approaches is growing rapidly. And this option is expected to be compatible with other future Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS).

EASy II also supports options such as integrated graphical XM® Weather; dual Jeppesen charts, Automatic Descent Mode (ADM), and the new ATC data communications capabilities on remote and oceanic routes support both CPDLC and ADS-C services available in FANS 1/A+ airspaces. In addition to optimizing airspace occupancy, this feature saves operators time and fuel by helping to reduce flight time with preferred, more direct routing.

 

Power behind the performance

Delivering 6,400 pounds of thrust each, three Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307A turbofans power the 7X to new levels of performance and efficiency. These rugged engines have logged more than 7 million hours. So reliable, their time between overhauls is 7,200 hours (typically 14 years of operation).
So quiet and so clean, they exceed stringent noise regulations and emission standards. So dependable, they include an outstanding warranty, guaranteed maintenance plan and worldwide support from Pratt & Whitney Canada.

 

The innovative Digital Flight Control System

The Falcon 7X is the first business jet in the world equipped with a Digital Flight Control System. Transferred directly from our jet fighters, this technology gives more precise handling and reduces workload, thus improving safety. Our DFCS also mitigates the effects of turbulence for a quieter, smoother ride.
