Dassault Falcon 8X


The Falcon 8X is the current flagship of the French aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation. It will loose its position once the 10X will hit the market in 2025 but till then it remains in the Top3 of its category competing with the Global 7500 and the G650 for the top spot.

The Falcon 8X is using 15-30% less fuel than its peers making it one of the most cost efficient long-haul charter jets currently in service. Which make it ideal for medium and large size group trips to destinations that are up to 12 flight hours away.

Cabin Experience

The Falcon 8X can carry up to 16 passengers in three cabin zones that are also one of the quietest and it features the longest cabin of the Falcon series. Which consist normally of a first section with 4 club chairs followed by a dinner area with 4 seats and a conference table and a one sofa and 2 club chair configuration in the back which can be turned into a flatbed for overnight flights for up to 6 passengers. The second and third section are depending on the configuration of the plane separated by curtains or a wooden wall.


The Falcon 8X can reach a maximum cruising speed of mach 0.90 which makes it an efficient aircraft for long haul charter flights whether that’s from London to Tokyo or Paris to Male.

For which flights is the Falcon 8X suited best?

The Falcon 8X is an ideal aircraft if you are looking to fly with a larger group to destinations of up to 11 flight hours or if you are looking to fly overnight FirstJets would recommend you to fly with a maximum of 7 passengers.

How far can I fly with a Falcon 8X?

The Falcon 7X can fly up to 6,450 nm or 11,945 km which are in flight hours around 11 hours. With that range you can easily reach Male from London or Paris out of Miami when chartering a Falcon 8X.

What are comparable Aircraft of the 8X?

Comparable aircraft would be the Global 7500 from the Canadian aircraft manufacturer Bombardier or the Gulfstream G650 by the US manufacturer Gulfstream. Both have similar on board experience and range and can be chartered at a similar price. However fuel wise the Falcon 8X is slightly less consuming.
