The very-long-range Falcon 8X, the new flagship of the Falcon range, can connect Paris to Hong Kong and Los Angeles to Beijing with no stopovers.
The Falcon 8X is the crown jewel of Falcon customer experience. It has the longest cabin in our family and also offers the best soundproofing for unrivaled comfort, plus an exceptionally wide choice of 30 different layouts.
The 8X has a range of 6,450 nautical miles, which means it is capable of non- stop flights between Beijing and New York, Singapore and London, or São Paulo and Moscow. It can also be operated out of airports that are inaccessible to most competitors, such as London City, from which it can take off for a non-stop flight to New York. And it’s 30% more eco-efficient that other aircraft in its class.
The Falcon 8X also features the FalconEye combined vision system, enabling it to fly approaches under reduced visibility conditions with exceptional safety and reliability because of the combined display with a map based on amplified infrared images collected by the airplane itself. FalconEye was certified in 2018 for approaches under low visibility up to 100 feet. A configuration with a dual head-up display will be available in 2020.
