​Efficiency​

​We look to science and technology to help us create the lightest,
strongest materials and near-perfect aerodynamics.
Yet at Dassault, we’re inspired by nature, too.

We noticed a long time ago how in nature, everything that flies is light, flexible and efficient. This simple observation continues to inspire us to create aircraft that use less fuel and release fewer emissions. It’s why being green comes naturally to us.

 

How and Why

The intelligent use of titanium alloys, composite materials, and computational fluid dynamics gives every Falcon fuel efficiencies, unrivalled performance and pure agility. All without sacrificing one inch on wide-body comfort and style.

 

 

The Architecture

A Falcon's superstructure uses state-of-the-art aerospace materials such as titanium, magnesium, composite laminates, hybrids and alloys. This makes every Falcon lighter, stronger and more durable than ordinary business jets. And each design extracts every extra mile of fuel efficiency without giving up an ounce of tensile strength.

 

The Power

To achieve the industry's most efficient thrust-to-weight ratios - and satisfy some of the world's most sophisticated business jet owners - Falcon engineers work closely with engine manufacturers. Each set of power plants is integrated into the aircraft's design to optimize thrust and minimize drag, whilst always maintaining our reputation for creating ‘the quietest cabin in the sky.’

 

 

The Aerodynamics

The exterior of every Falcon is designed to slice through the air more cleanly and efficiently than any other business jet, and at every altitude. Unique wing design allows each jet to land at a slower speed than similar jets in its class, giving it access to hundreds more smaller airports than other planes its size.
All thanks to 90 years of Dassault studying the physics of aerodynamics and our 40-year experience in aerospace technology.

 

The People

Working at Dassault is more than a job, it is a responsibility at the highest level. One that is coveted by some of the most talented engineers, designers, software engineers, pilots and technicians in the world.
And it is these same experts who design, build and test our legendary Rafale and Mirage fighters (jets that fly at Mach 2 and produce nine Gs) who work on our Falcons.
