Falcon 900LX

 

The latest in the immensely popular Falcon 900 series, this large-cabin trijet stands alone in its class for performance, comfort and efficiency.
Since its inception, more than 500 Falcon 900 aircraft have been delivered, each generation refining and building on the strengths of the previous, establishing an industry benchmark for longevity, durability, reliability and long-term value retention.

Apply the latest aerodynamic technology and advanced avionics to an already ultra-efficient trijet, and you have an aircraft that will take you places its competitors cannot, like short runways and hot-and-high airports.
You also gain range and efficiency. Compared with earlier Falcon 900s, the 900LX delivers a range of 4,750 nm (8,800 km), and consumes less fuel.

While its ramp appeal is undeniable, the beauty of the 900LX’s trijet design enhances comfort and performance. In addition to allowing a large cabin within a compact fuselage, it lowers critical speeds for safer landings and superior short-field agility.

It’s more maneuverable on the tarmac, requires less hangar space – and it provides greater peace of mind and more direct routing on long routes over water.

The EASy II flight deck dramatically improves crew coordination and situational awareness, presenting everything from flight planning and automated checklists to the aircraft’s precise position, situation and environment through an innovative graphical interface that allows pilots to work ‘eyes up’. Dassault’s proprietary Combined Vision System, FalconEye™, now available on the Falcon 900LX, is the first head up display (HUD) system to blend synthetic, database-driven terrain mapping and actual thermal and low-light camera images into a single view, providing an unprecedented level of situational awareness to flight crews in all conditions of operation, day and night. The aircraft’s integrated airborne monitoring service, FalconBroadcast®, provides real-time notification of in-flight events and maintenance status, helping operators maximize dispatch by beginning the troubleshooting process while still in the air.

With High-Mach Blended Winglets extending its range to 4,750 nm (8,800 km), the 900LX crosses any ocean or continent, and sometimes one of each, traveling routes like London-Seattle with nonstop ease. It will fly you from Chicago Executive to Geneva, or just about anywhere on nearly one-third less fuel than its nearest competitor.

The 900LX’s high maximum landing weight allows short hops followed by transoceanic leaps, without refueling. Fly from Washington, D.C. to Geneva, for example, with a quick stop in New York. Or fly six from Paris to London, then on to New York, with fuel to spare. Beyond saving time, you save money, avoiding the need to buy more costly fuel away from home.

Quality is everywhere in the completely redesigned Falcon 900LX cabin. Furnishings are both elegant and ergonomic. Our designers have achieved astonishing results through the mixing of materials, by using wood varnished to a high gloss and buttery soft leather.

Controls are neatly hidden in the armrest within easy reach, making cabin management simple and intuitive. Closely spaced windows let in an abundance of natural light. New, advanced acoustical insulation has reduced cabin noise levels by 2db SIL. An innovative “mood” light system allows passengers to create the perfect ambiance for work, rest or dining.

Trijet design largely accounts for the distinctive ramp appeal of the Falcon 900LX. But the beauty of this proven performer runs through every aspect of its rugged airframe, advanced aerodynamics, cutting-edge avionics and time-tested systems. Now in its seventh iteration, this is a legend in the making.

Space Oddity

How can the past and the future be, when the past no longer is, and the future is not yet?

Time is one of the greatest mysteries of the universe. We are all swept up in the river of time against our will. From the movies Back to the Future and Déjà vu to the most recent Tomorrowland and Project Almanac, pop culture has embraced us to open the drapes of time travel. We use the world of Science Fiction to explore the fundamentals – and the limits – of the laws of physics as we know them today. But here’s the question: Is time travel beyond the realm of physical possibility? Let’s find out.

Time travel itself does have some science facts. Around the turn of the century, Einstein has shocked us with his theory of General Relativity. According to his theory, gravity affects time and space, so it…

Falcon 7X

 

From its inception, the Falcon 7X was destined to be a revolutionary aircraft, introducing business aviation to the industry’s first Digital Flight Control System. Like so many other aspects of the aircraft, its DFCS drew on Dassault’s 30 years of military experience, especially its Rafale and Mirage 2000 programs. The 7X would become the first business jet to use fighter jet technology with an elegant, whisper-quiet executive cabin.

 

Falcon 7X

 

Today, over 270 Falcon 7X aircraft are in service in 41 countries. The fleet has performed some 550,000 flight hours and presents excellent dispatch reliability. And a growing number of operators worldwide are discovering they need not compromise small-jet agility and efficiency for long-range comfort and capability. Now a mature and proven aircraft platform, the Falcon 7X is still the most advanced — still the business jet benchmark for the 21st century.

Falcon 7X

The Falcon 7X is the most technologically advanced business jet in service anywhere in the world today. Sleek yet practical, it is redefining ownership, pilot and passenger performance. It is the new generation of business aircraft.

Unique flexibility allows the Falcon 7X to perform varied missions easily. And with fuel consumption 15-30% lower than other jets in its class, it dramatically lowers operating costs.

 

Falcon 7X

 

The Falcon 7X is designed to fly 5,950 nm (11,019 km), linking city pairs such as Paris-Tokyo, Shanghai-Seattle, New York-Jeddah, and Johannesburg-London, with a payload of eight passengers and three crew. With a .90 Mach Maximum Operating Speed (MMO), the Falcon 7X can also cover shorter distances to get you faster where you need to be.

When it comes to landing, slower is safer. At typical landing weight, the approach speed of the 7X is only 104 knots (193 km/h). It can land and stop in just 2,070 feet (630 m). As a result, it can access hundreds of airports other jets cannot, including those with hot and high conditions, steep approaches and stringent noise restrictions. The 7X is the only aircraft in its class able to reach New York, from London City Airport.

Dassault Falcon’s EASy flight deck is a revolutionary man-machine interface, which dramatically improves situational awareness, decreases pilot workload and enhances crew coordination. EASy II, its second generation, offers a host of new functionalities and features designed to further increase safety and situational awareness while taking advantage of next-generation technologies within the air traffic management system.

 

Falcon 7X

 

The Digital Flight Control System (DFCS) features three main flight computers that receive control inputs and direct control movement, backed up by three secondary computers. An analog computer controlling the two flight spoilers using rudder pedal displacement, and the trimmable horizontal stabilizer, via the pitch trim switch, provide the ultimate back-up in the event of computer failure.

The computers permit precise flight path control. Using the fighter-jet styled side stick controller, the pilot follows a single flight path vector (FPV) cue. The DFCS handles auto-trim adjustments, optimizes the configuration and provides stability augmentation.The DFCS’s computers also provide built-in flight envelope protection, allowing pilots to extract maximum aircraft performance and efficiency without risk of overstressing the aircraft.

They monitor pilot flight control inputs and prevent the aircraft from exceeding angle-of-attack, airspeed/Mach or load limits.This feature is invaluable in instances where maximum performance is needed such as when encountering wind shear or taking collision avoidance maneuvers.
