Description: Dassault-Aviation's Falcon is a family of business jets powered by two or three engines introduced in 1965 with more than 1,800 airplanes ordered from customers in 65 countries. The Falcon family has logged more than 11 million flying hours since its first customer delivery in the 1960s. From the twinjet Falcon 20 to the trijet Falcon 7X featuring intercontinental range, Falcon has taken profit from advanced technologies coming from both military and commercial range. Originally Falcon was known as the Mystere and inherited Dassault's expertise on military aircraft programs.

The first commercial model available was twinjet Falcon 20 (Mystere 20) followed by Falcon 200 which was also powered by two engines. In 1979, Dassault delivered the first long range, trijet Falcon 50 business jet. The Falcon 50EX is currently the last Falcon 50 model in production and is capable of traveling slightly more than 3,000 nautical miles (nm). Trijet Falcon 900 features ranges in excess of 4,000 nm (7,000+ km). In 1995, Dassault introduced Falcon 2000 twinjet aircraft for customers needing VIP transport for ranges no greater than 4,000 nautical miles. By 2006, Falcon 7X with an impressive range of 5,700 nm (10,500 km) will complete Falcon portfolio.

The Dassault Falcon 8X is an ultra long range business jet designed to fly 6,450 nautical miles (12,000 kilometers) non-stop while offering the longest cabin of the Falcon family. The new aircraft will share the same low operating economics and the remarkable operating flexibility for which all Falcons are known. The Falcon 8X will carry eight passengers and three crewmembers cruising at 0.8 Mach. It will be powered by three Pratt and Whitney Canada PW307D engines delivering 6,722 lbs of thrust each and combined with improvements to wing design, the new power plant will make the 8X up to 35 percent more fuel efficient than any other aircraft in the ultra-long range segment. Dassault Aviation launched the Falcon 8X program on May 19, 2014, with the first flight planned for early 2015 and certification as well as initial deliveries within 2016.

The Falcon 8X will be equipped with a totally redesigned cockpit modeled after the Falcon 5X.� It will feature a new generation of the EASy flight deck equipped with a head-up display that combines synthetic and enhanced vision and offer a dual HUD capability. The Falcon 8X will also be fitted with a redesigned ultra-efficient wing derived from the Falcon 7X. The wing structure has been redesigned to minimize the overall aircraft drag during cruise while achieving a 600 lb weight saving. �It will also feature optimized leading edge profile and winglets. These improvements are expected to increase significantly the lift to drag ratio.
