The Dassault Falcon company carried out the first latest business Jett Falcon 8X’s delivery. As representatives of producer reported in the press release, the Greek company Amjet Executive became the owner of the first car. The plane got board number of SX-CGR and will be based in Athens. Earlier “Frenchman” of Falcon 7X was a leader of Amjet Executive also.
Being derivative of Falcon 7X, 19-seater business Jett received the extended on 1 m, 13-meter interior and the range increased by 925 km — 11945 km. Thus, he became the longest and long-range business Jett of the French producer. The program 8X was submitted on interior of business aircraft of EBACE-2014 in Geneva in May, 2014, soon after the announcement of the program of two-engine Falcon 5X. Business Jett is equipped with the advanced version of Pratt and Whitney Canada PW307D engines (pull-rod 5% more in comparison with PW307A at Falcon 7X). 8X it is equipped with the processed superefficient side panel from Falcon 7X. The design of a side panel was modernized to minimize the general resistance of the plane at a cruiser speed and to lose weight for 600 pounds. Also the side panel received the optimized cross-section and zakontsovka. These improvements considerably increased upward force, and respectively improved aerodynamic quality of the plane. Also the plane became less stable, and it is good for aerodynamics as the horizontal stabilizer with a smaller angle of attack is also resistance source. However relative instability is easily compensated by a computer control system.
8X it is capable to fly up and land of the runway of long 6000 feet (1829 m) and has the landing speed of 106 knots / 197 km/h (at Falcon 7X – 104 of knot). As Falcon 7X, the new plane is capable to carry out abrupt calling with a corner to 6 degrees that will allow it to land at the complex airports.
Dassault Falcon reports that now on production capacities 16 Falcon 8X are made and 11 more cars are in various stages of readiness.
