In addition, the Falcon has a high-speed wing that is 1.86 m longer than that of its predecessor 900EX and has a 5° higher wing sweep. Coupled with the three-engine configuration, this combination enables maximum range thanks to the best possible efficiency. Thanks to special engine mounts and state-of-the-art cabin isolators, the cabin is also extremely quiet, below 50 dBA, and can be equipped with a shower.
In February 2010, Dassault Falcon and BMW Designworks were awarded the 2009 Good Design Award by the Chicago Athenaeum and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design for their collaboration on the new Falcon 7X interior.
Advantages of a Falcon 7X as a rental aircraft:
Range: With its long range, the Falcon 7X private business jet offers a weighty advantage over many alternative business jets. Thanks to a maximum range of over 11,000 kilometres, it is able to take passengers to many popular overseas destinations without a stopover. Passengers can commute time-efficiently and comfortably in a 7X, even between distant continents and countries.
Suitability also for challenging airfields: The suitability to land even on difficult and small airfields makes the jet the ideal choice for luxury travel to remote destinations. Equipped with three powerful Pratt Whitney Canada engines, the Falcon 7X can take off from short runways and reach its cruising altitude within minutes. Travellers fly closer to their final destination in the luxury jet and save precious travel time.
Additional third engine: The aircraft's third engine offers a number of advantages in terms of performance and safety. It enables the Dassault to take off and fly further than other jets in its class, even when fully loaded. The extra thrust allows the business jet to climb to its final altitude more efficiently and faster, supporting a more efficient flight. The third engine also serves as a backup should one of the main engines fail, increasing safety for passengers and crew.
Elegance: The Falcon 7X is known for its elegance, which sets it apart from other private jets. The luxurious interior has been crafted with the highest quality materials and attention to detail. Luxury pampered passengers spend their travel time in comfort and style. This combination of luxury and cutting-edge technology makes the Falcon 7X coveted by frequent private jet travellers around the world. Many travellers describe the large aircraft as their preferred choice for business and leisure travel.
Distribution: The Falcon 7X is one of the most widely used longe range jet options for private air travel. This makes it an ideal choice for travellers who like to travel in the same type of aircraft. Many airfields offer a 7X for charter.
Disadvantages of a Falcon 7X as a rental aircraft:
More space in the Gulfstream: The cabin of the Falcon 7X is lower and shorter than that of the Gulfstream G650. For larger travellers or travel groups with greater storage needs, this could be a disadvantage. Especially if a lot or bulky luggage has to be transported, there may not be sufficient storage facilities available in the 7X. The lack of space in the cabin could also limit the relaxation options during the
Higher maintenance costs due to additional engine: The third engine of the Dassault Falcon 7X requires additional maintenance, such as regular inspections, overhauls and other routine checks. For private jet travellers, this may result in higher charter costs. The bottom line is that the additional engine offers passengers more performance, reliability and safety, but it also comes at a price.
The following three private jets are possible rental jet alternatives if no Falcon 7X is available:
Bombardier Global Express XRS
The Gulfstream G550 is a possible alternative to the Falcon 7X with up to 12.5 per cent additional range. In addition, the Gulfstream has a little more space in the cabin and additional storage space. However, it is at a disadvantage in terms of cruising speed - due to the lack of a third engine.
Another alternative is the larger Gulfstream G650, which replaced the G550 as Gulfstream's flagship business jet in 2021. The larger Gulfstream offers even slightly more cabin volume and even surpasses the Dassault in terms of cruising speed. However, as a heavy aircraft, it requires a slightly longer tarmac for take-off and landing.
The Canadian aircraft manufacturers from Bombardier are also at the starting line with a possible alternative. The Global Express XRS offers a longer range and a slightly larger cabin as standard. When travelling across the oceans, on the other hand, the three-engined Falcon 7X can fly a more direct route and thus shorten the flight time.
The Dassault Falcon 7X is an excellent choice for anyone looking to charter a long-range private jet. It offers exceptionally luxurious comfort, a first-class interior and virtually unmatched performance. With its spacious cabin and advanced avionics, it can accommodate up to 19 passengers in ultimate comfort and fly them almost anywhere in the world. The three powerful engines make the business jet incredibly reliable and performant. The modern entertainment system on board ensures that passengers are optimally entertained during the flight. Rightly so, many travellers trust Dassault's Falcon 7X when choosing a private jet charter aircraft.
