Aug 17, 2017: Dassault’s latest ultra-long range Falcon 8X, along with the legendary 5,950nm/11,000 km Falcon 7X and the 4,000 nm/7,700 km Falcon 2000S will be showcased at the Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE) at São Paulo’s Congonhas Airport from August 15-17.
Less than one year after certification of the 6,450 nm/11,945 km trijet, the 8X is in operation in nearly all key markets globally, including the United States, Europe, the Middle East, India and will soon enter service in China.
“Success for the Falcon 8X in Brazil is following the same trajectory set by the popular Falcon 7X,” said John Rosanvallon, president and CEO of Dassault Falcon Jet. “The feedback on our new flagship has been universally positive in Brazil and around the world, especially regarding cabin noise levels, which make it the quietest aircraft in its class.”
With eight passengers and three crew, the Falcon 8X is capable of connecting São Paulo with San Francisco and Moscow, Hong Kong with London and Shanghai with Los Angeles. The aircraft features a cabin 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in) high, 2.34 m (7 ft 8 in) wide and 13 m (42 ft 8 in) long and offers customers the most diverse selection of cabin layouts on the market. Three galley sizes are available, including two with a crew-rest option. Operators also have a broad selection of passenger seating areas of changeable lengths capable of supporting different lavatory layouts.
The 8X is available with Dassault’s new FalconEye Combined Vision System, the first head-up display in the industry to combine synthetic and superior vision capabilities. Besides ensuring superior situational awareness in all conditions of operation, day and night, FalconEye will make it possible to reduce minima in low visibility landing conditions, offering a significant operational benefit. Passengers will also enjoy Ka band high speed internet connectivity throughout the cabin with Honeywell’s JetWave connectivity option.
The 4,000nm 2000LXS, and its shorter range sibling the Falcon 2000S, offers a short-field capability comparable to smaller midsize business jet models but with a range and comfort level far better than those aircraft. Equipped with a next-generation EASy flight deck and the FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system, the 2000LXS/S offers a combination of airport performance, cabin design and efficiency unique in their class. They are also available with the FalconEye Combined Vision System.
LABACE will also feature Dassault’s new Falcon Immersive Practical Training module, which uses 3D virtual reality technology to assist maintenance training for engineers and technicians.
