More Range, More Cabin, Legendary Efficiency.

 

Fly farther. Achieve more.

Stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved is a preoccupation that drives us.
For us, it means on-going innovation, enabling us to deliver ever better, ever more capable Falcons.

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

 

Our new flagship. The freedom to fly where you want, as you like.

Its 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,
we are stretching the boundaries of what a business jet can do for you, helping you accomplish more.

Facts & Figures

Performance

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.

Reach beyond

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.


More Range After Short Hops

The Falcon 8X can land at 85% of its maximum takeoff 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.

Direct operating costs 35% lower than those of competing jets.

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.



Unbeatable economics

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.

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

placeholder+image

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.
