Falcon 8X

The Falcon 8X offers a unique combination of efficiency and flexibility in the long-range aircraft segment. Its cabin is also the quietest on the market and offers unrivaled comfort with an exceptionally wide choice of layouts.

The Falcon 8X has a range of 6,450 nm (12,000 km), which means it is capable of nonstop flights between Beijing and New York, Singapore and London, or São Paulo and Moscow. It can be operated out of airports that are inaccessible to most competitors, such as London City, Lugano or La Môle – St-Tropez.

The Falcon 8X is equipped with a Digital Flight Control System derived from the Rafale. This technology makes flights safer and increases passenger comfort. It also has a FalconEye option, a combination synthetic vision system which enables nighttime approaches under reduced visibility conditions.
