The Falcon 8X, Dassault’s flagship ultra-long-range trijet, can now operate at London City Airport in the UK. The approval means that all Dassault Aviation’s in-production fleet is now certified to operate at the airport.
“The ability to fly in and out of London City, and other hard-to-reach airports, affords a measure of flexibility and a significant operating benefit to our customers,” said Eric Trappier, chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. “Airport performance is among the top design priorities for every Falcon that Dassault has produced.”
At 6,450 nautical miles, the Falcon 8X’s range is the largest of any Falcon. The aircraft also has the most standard cabin configuration options in the range. It is available with Dassault’s new FalconEye Combined Vision System, a head-up display that combines synthetic and enhanced vision capabilities.
