Falcon 7x business jet

Dassault Falcon 7X is the first business jet with a digital flight control system. It is the company’s fastest-ever selling business jet

The Dassault Falcon 7X is a large-cabin, 5,950 nmi range business jet manufactured by Dassault Aviation, the largest of its Dassault Falcon line.

The Dassault Falcon 7X is a large-cabin, 5,950 nmi range business jet manufactured by Dassault Aviation , the largest of its Dassault Falcon line. Launched at 2001 Paris Air Show , its first flight was on 5 May 2005 and it entered service on 15 June 2007. The Falcon 8X is derived from the 7X with a longer range of 6,450 nmi afforded by engine optimizing, aerodynamic refinements and an increase in fuel capacity. [7] Featuring an S-duct central engine, it and the Falcon 900 are the only two trijets in production.

It was first presented to the public at the 2005 Paris Air Show . The aircraft has received its type certification from both the Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on 27 April 2007. [10] The first 7X, MSN05, entered service on 15 June 2007. [3] The hundredth was delivered in November 2010. [11] It conducted high altitude airport tests at 14,500 ft in Daocheng in 2014. [12]

In 2001, the Falcon 7X, at approximately $35 million (preproduction order price), was nearly $10 million cheaper than its nearest competitors in the long-range, large cabin market segment, including the Gulfstream G550 and Bombardier Global Express . [13] It was targeted to be priced for 2004 at 12% more than the $33 million top-of-the-range Falcon 900EX equipped: $39.6 million. [9] Its price was $37 million in 2005, [1] and $41 million in 2007. [14] In 2008, the smaller Global Express 5000 was priced at $40M. [15]

The Dassault Mystère/Falcon 10 is an early corporate jet aircraft developed by French aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation . Despite its numbering sequence it was actually developed after the Falcon 20 , and although it is sometimes considered as a scaled-down version of that aircraft, it was totally redesigned with a non-circular fuselage, a new wing with slotted flaps, a split passenger door and many simplified circuits compared to the Falcon 20. [1]

When an aircraft manufacturer introduces a new model, it is most likely an improved version of the predecessor.  There is no better example than the Dassault Falcon 7X; it flies higher, farther and faster than any of its predecessors.  Delivered in 2007, the Falcon 7X outperforms similar aircraft in its class, due in large part to a new engine and complete redesign.

The 7X employs three, not two, Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307A engines.  Each engine is rated at 6,402 lbs of thrust.  They are responsible for the jet’s 5,950 nautical-mile range as well as its fast Mach .90 operating speed.  The upgraded engines also reduce cabin noise and vibration, efficient for business travel.

Dassault also improved the Falcon 7X’s design, introducing it as the first fully fly-by-wire business jet.  The fly-by-wire system gives pilots greater control by limiting the pitch of the aircraft.  A completely new wing design, and Dassault’s first winglets, make its long range possible, as well as 35% more efficiency than the Falcon 900.
