November 13, 2017: Dassault Aviation, an international French aircraft manufacturer of military, regional, and business jets will showcase its new ultra-long range Falcon 8X business jet at the Dubai Air Show.
The exhibit will also feature a new modernised version of the super versatile Falcon 900LX long range trijet launched in late 2016.
The 6,450 nm/11,945 km Falcon 8X has generated considerable excitement in the Middle East since the first aircraft was delivered to a Gulf customer several months ago. The 8X is now in service in all major markets, including the US, Europe, Russia, China and India, in addition to the Middle East.
“We expect the Gulf region to play a big role in the success of our new flagship, which offers the best combination of range, cabin comfort and operating efficiency of any business jet on the market,” said Dassault Aviation Chairman/CEO Eric Trappier. “We also anticipate heavy demand here for our upgraded Falcon 900LX model, with a re-designed cabin, contemporary styling, optimized sound proofing, and the latest cabin systems that make it the best buy in its category for years to come.”
