EBACE 2014: Introducing the Dassault Falcon 8X private jet

This week the Chapman Freeborn team is with the other big names in business aviation at EBACE in Geneva – a platform for major aerospace manufacturers to launch some of their most exciting new private jet designs yet.

Alongside the announcement of the Gulfstream G650ER, one of the new jets we’re looking forward to appearing on the charter market is the Dassault Falcon 8X.

Launched at EBACE this week, the ultra-long-range Falcon 8X will offer a range of 6,450 nm (11,945 km) and will feature the longest cabin of any Falcon private jet so far.

With eight passengers and three crew, the Falcon 8X jet will be capable of flying 6,450 nm non-stop at M.80, opening up city pairs that include Beijing – Los Angeles, London – Sao Paulo and Mumbai – Sydney.

Like the Falcon 7X – a highly popular charter aircraft –  the Falcon 8X will be capable of approaches up to 6 degrees, allowing it to access challenging airports such as London City Airport, Aspen, La Mole (Saint-Tropez) and Saanen – Gstaad (Switzerland), that are normally not accessible to most large cabin aircraft.

The 8X’s first flight is expected in early 2015 with certification planned for the middle of 2016 and initial deliveries due before the end of 2016.
