Long-range Business Jets. What Next For Dassault?

Sun Feb 10, 2013 12:58 am

-What's on the horizon for Dassault Falcon? the 7X has a range of 5800NM.... Will they come up with something that can fly longer and faster?

as things stand they don't offer an airplane that could fly important routes non-stop like Tokyo-New York or PEK/HKG-LAX

they did a great job on their website, check it out

http://www.dassaultfalcon.com/en/Pages/Home.aspx


here's what the competition offers

-Gulfstream- G-550 (6700NM range), G-650 (7000NM range)

-Bombardier- Global 6000 (6000NM range) and the soon to come Global 7000 (7100NM range) & Global 8000 (7900NM range)

-737-BBJ and A319-ACJ 6500+ NM....

Apparently there is a Falcon SMS project : http://www.pprune.org/biz-jets-ag-fl...ng-range-g650-glex-competitor.html

A boring twin.

I hope they would make a 7XEX !

Also, a shower for the 7X : http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-ne...lt-installs-first-falcon-7x-shower

Maybe installed in the 7X used by the French president when he isn't taking the A330 ?

A Falcon 7X can stay in the air for about 12 hours, that's good enough to fly from HKG or NRT to LAX (going East). They need to come up with something that can do it both ways.

Hopefully that Falcon 7X-EX makes it to the production line.

Performance wise the DA 7X is already there, I saw one go from Aspen to Geneva last week. That's pretty good
