Ski spotlight – Dassault Falcon 8X
As we continue our ski-theme (see the previous article on Courchevel), we take a look at an aircraft that perfectly complements the three pillars of a successful ski trip: speed, style and comfort – the Dassault Falcon 8X.
Dassault first unveiled plans for the development of their latest flagship, the Falcon 8X in 2014. Certified by EASA in 2016, the tri-engine jet was manufactured to further compete in the rapidly growing ultra-long-range market alongside the likes of Gulfstream G650ER and Bombardier’s Global Express range.
Building on the foundation of its predecessor – the Falcon 7X, this machine offers passengers a flight range unmatched in the Dassault corporate jet family, owing to an optimised wing design and increased fuel capacity. Customers can fly non-stop to their European winter getaways from destinations as far away as Cape Town, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
When you’re heading to the slopes this winter, the spacious design of the 8X boasts the perfect cabin for your family and the tri-engine design offers excellent short field capabilities. It’s this combination of practicality and performance that has positioned this aircraft as an ultimate mode of transport to access many of Europe’s alpine airports.
Chapman Freeborn has access to a number of Falcon 8X aircraft available on the charter market.
