New $58 million Dassault Falcon 8X, is a stretched version of the Falcon 7X which first examples expected to be in owners’ hangars early this fall. The 8X’s cabin size is approximately 3.2 ft. longer than its 7X predecessor and is now almost 43 feet long and 7.6 feet wide, with 30 possible layouts to choose from. Every passenger’s need – from a full galley to a comfortable workspace to a restful night’s sleep and a shower – can be accommodated.
It has also received an engine upgrade which altogether allows for take offs on shorter runways and improved fuel efficiency by 35% versus its competitors. The Falcon 8X can travel up to 7,422 miles nonstop and reach speeds of up to 425 mph.
Dassault received certification from both U.S. and European regulators, and the delivery will begin later this year.
