Super Range Falcon 8X Review
Not so much time has passed since the first transfer to the customer of the most up-to-date Falcon 8X, and Dassault Falcon has already significantly expanded the geography of supplies and is ready for the transfer of the 50th anniversary machine.
Most of the "eights" delivered in the United States. The leader in supply is followed by Denmark, Switzerland and Belgium (three cars each). The latest 8X aircraft received customers from Turkey. Also, the jets were delivered to Russia, India, Egypt, Brazil, Germany, Turkey, the UK, Luxembourg, the UAE and Greece. A few more boards registered on the Isle of Man, in San Marino and Bermuda. Recall that the first 8X was transferred to the client in October 2016, and now more than 10 cars are ready for transfer to customers.
The 8X Super Range is the flagship of the Dassault Falcon line of business jets. As commented in the company, this is an amazingly fast aircraft, capable of flying at a speed of 0.9 Mach to a distance of 11,945 km without refueling. At the same time, an improved wing design and a new powerplant make a business jet 35% more economical than any other ultra-long-haul aircraft of this type.
The aircraft is equipped with an innovative third-generation EASy system, a three-dimensional weather radar and a Falcon Eye Head-Up Display flight indicator, combining a real picture and a synthesized image. The unique three-engine scheme of the Falcon aircraft improves flight safety, especially over water areas and during takeoff in mountainous conditions.
Even in long-haul flights you can always feel at home. Falcon 8X - your personal penthouse at an altitude of 15 km. Thanks to the longest cab in the Falcon family, the 8X model offers a large selection of cabin configurations. More than 30 cabin layout options include three seating areas, three kitchen options, depending on size, two types of compartments for the crew. Some configurations require a shower.
The noise level on board the 8X is so low that in flight you can talk quietly and sleep well. Air quality meets the highest standards, and cockpit pressure provides comfort regardless of flight altitude.
