The very first example of the Dassault Falcon 8X, the French aerospace firm’s new $58 million ultralong-range business jet, was delivered to European charter company Amjet Executive earlier this month. The Greek charter service, which manages a fleet of planes that includes Falcon 50s and Falcon 7Xs, is the first company to offer charters aboard the Falcon 8X.
Billed as the company’s $58 million tune-up of the already popular 7X model, this new Falcon can fly you farther, in greater comfort, and with even more efficiency.
Its cabin – the longest in the Falcon family – provides more comfort and a stunning choice of more than 30 distinct layouts. And thanks to overall design enhancements, the 8X is every bit as fuel efficient as the Falcon 7X. It features a sleek, 80-foot body, nearly half of which is reserved for cabin room. Passengers can control a cabin management system via Apple devices and apps from anywhere in the plane, charting flight progress and calling up a virtual moving map by pointing your iPad in its direction. The extra cabin space allows for a possible living area, shower and sink, lie-flat beds, a media/entertainment lounge, or a grand galley for fine dining. All told, the jet’s interior is a wonder of potential comfortable accommodations and technological quirks.
The Falcon 8X continues Falcon traditions of efficiency, performance, flexibility and comfort, while saving millions in total life cycle costs versus any rival.
