Falcons on the Rise
Goulian Demos 8X Extreme Agility


A unique 8X demonstration


Since its introduction, the Falcon 8X has flown countless demo flights, setting records for speed and efficiency. Recently, the 8X’s robust airframe and advanced digital flight controls were put to the ultimate test by none other than the legendary aerobatic champion and airshow performer, Mike Goulian. Renowned aviation journalist Miles O’Brien was there to capture and report on the action. So, how did the Falcon 8X perform? Come along with Mike for a flight you’ll never forget and see why he calls it “a pilot’s airplane.”

New video premiers


The Operator Advisory Board is the face and voice of Dassault’s customer base. Comprised of members from 14 countries around the world, the OAB makes recommendations for improving the overall Falcon Customer Experience. Putting their proposals into action helped elevate Dassault to #1 in the 2019 Pro Pilot and AIN product support surveys. Aviation broadcast journalist, Miles O’Brien, was on hand to film the most recent OAB meeting in Bordeaux-Merignac, France.

Our crew chief on biofuels


In his most recent Crew Chief Blog, Jean Kayanakis tackles a subject of concern for everyone who flies a Falcon: reducing their carbon footprint. Fortunately, Falcons are among the most efficient jets flying and higher efficiency equals lower emissions. Better yet, Falcons can utilize biofuels (SAF for Sustainable Aviation Fuel), which can reduce carbon emissions by up to 80%! Dassault is doing its part by flying demo aircraft to trade shows, such as EBACE and NBAA on biofuel blends, and will be undertaking more such operations in the future.
