With two new jets in development at Dassault Falcon, the all-new 5X and the 8X range-topper, you can be sure the company has its hands full. Here we take a look at some updates on the two programmes.
The $57m 8X is a major development of the existing 7X, and is around 1m longer in the cabin and rangier by 500nm (6450nm maximum). Though it springs from the 7X, it features upgrades and improvements throughout. It is planned to make its first flight very soon, and be ready for market in 2015. That’s fast!
