2 Min Read

Only the super rich and the politically powerful enjoy flights with Dassault Falcon 7X described as a revolutionary aircraft.

In business aviation the Falcon 7X introduced the industry’s first Digital Flight Control System (DFCS) drawing on Dassault’s 30 years of military experience, especially its Rafale and Mirage 2000 programs.

The 7X became the first business jet to use fighter jet technology with an elegant, whisper-quiet executive cabin.

Currently, over 270 Falcon 7X aircraft are in service in 41 countries according to the manufacturer.

This new generation aircraft is designed to fly 5,950 nm (11,019 km), can land at almost 90 percent of its maximum takeoff weight.

So it can perform multiple short and long flights without having to refuel. It is the only aircraft in its class able to reach New York, from London City Airport.

According to its engineering, it can land and stop in just 2,070 feet (630 m). As a result, it can access hundreds of airports other jets cannot, including those with hot and high conditions, steep approaches and stringent noise restrictions.

This jet has an expansive interior organized into three lounges, accommodating 12 to 16 passengers.

It was launched at 2001 Paris Air Show and its first flight was on 5 May 2005 and it entered service on 15 June 2007.
