Aircraft History

The more than $41 million Falcon 7X is an all-new tri-jet with a projected range of more than 5,700 nautical miles and a cabin that is 8 feet longer than the current Dassault flagship, the Falcon 900EX. The Falcon 7X is the first business jet to have fly-by-wire with side-stick control. Dassault also announced that the new Falcon offers the equally new and advanced Honeywell EASy electronic cockpit. Three Pratt & Whitney Canada PW 307A engines with 6,100 pounds of thrust will power the aircraft.
 
Also new will be the environmental systems, which offer a 6,000-foot cabin at cruise altitudes, a full 2,000 feet lower than the other Falcons. Dassault is also aiming for a quieter interior as well.
 
While the exterior view looks like a large Falcon 900, the wing is also a new design. Planned cruise speeds are in the Mach 0.85–0.90 range. Still, the takeoff and landing distances are similar to the smaller, lighter Falcon 900EX.
 
The Falcon 7X made its first flight in 2005. It was certified in in April 2007 and entered service shortly afterwards.
