Falcon 10X: most advanced technology on a Business Jet

An all-new Falcon jet was announced by the company Dassault Aviation. It will fly non-stop from New York to Shanghai, from Los Angeles to Sydney, from Hong Kong to New York, or from Paris to Santiago. Featuring a range of 7,500 nautical miles, the top speed will be Mach 0.925.

The Falcon 10X will enter service at the end of 2025.

 

Technical characteristics
The 10X will have one of the largest and most comfortable cabins on the market and intends to offer more modularity than any other aircraft in its class. It will also feature a completely new fuselage with extra-large windows, almost 50% larger than those of the Falcon 8X. Thirty-eight windows make the cabin the brightest in business aviation.
 
The high-speed wing will be made of carbon fiber. Thise material will give to it:
 
  1. maximum strength
  2. low weight
  3. minimum resistance

Tailored to speed and efficiency, the wing will be equipped with advanced high-lift devices, which will offer superior maneuverability at low approaching speeds.

 
Dassault Chairman and CEO Eric Trappier

“Today we are introducing a new benchmark in business aviation. The Falcon 10X will offer an unrivaled passenger experience over both short- and long-duration flights, along with breakthrough safety features from Dassault’s frontline fighter technology. We have optimized every aspect of the aircraft with the passenger in mind and established a new level of capability for ultra-long-range aircraft.”
