About the Dassault Falcon 8X
With 6,450 nm (11,945 km) range and outstanding short-field performance, the 8X links important city pairs nonstop and accesses 500 more airports in the U.S. alone than its competitors. Then there’s the superlative airfield performance of the Falcon 8X, which adds even more reach beyond other aircraft in its class.
Steep and Strong, Hot and High
Steep approach angles and strong climb-out gradients are no problem for the Falcon 8X. Nor are hot and high conditions. And it delivers superior range from both. From London City’s 3,934 foot (1,200 m) runway, it can fly nonstop to Dubai or New York. Or departing Eagle, Colorado, an elevation above 6,500 ft (1,980 m), it can fly nonstop to Geneva, Switzerland.
More Range After Short Hops
The Falcon 8X can land at 85% of its maximum takeoff weight. So you can fuel up at home base and make a short hop before flying a longer leg of more than 4,600 nm (8,519 km) without refueling. It’s a capability that can save you money on home-based fuel and also boost your mission flexibility.
The Tri-Jet Advantage
Thanks to its three engines, which shorten transoceanic routes, the Falcon 8X flies you wherever you are going faster. They also contribute to the 8X’s slow and stable approach speed — a mere 107 knots (198 kph). And its three-engine performance margins allow takeoffs from shorter runways.
