Dassault Falcon 7X: Rent the elegant Long Range Jet

The Dassault Falcon 7X is an impressive long-range wide-body business jet developed by the renowned French aerospace company Dassault Aviation. It has a transatlantic range of over 11,000 kilometres and was first unveiled at the 2001 Paris Air Show industry trade show. The aircraft made its maiden flight on 5 May 2005 and entered service just two years later, in June 2007. As a so-called trijet, the business jet has three engines, unlike many of its competitors. Other hallmarks of the jet are its central engine with S-duct to improve aerodynamics and fuel efficiency.

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:

  • Gulfstream G550

  • Gulfstream G650

  • 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Dassault Falcon 7X cost?

A new Dassault Falcon 7X costs between 50 and 70 million US dollars, depending on the equipment. The cost of a used model depends primarily on the age of the aircraft, its condition, the number of flight hours completed and its equipment. The price range for a used Falcon 7X can vary greatly and is usually between 20 and 40 million US dollars. The Falcon 7X is a powerful long-range business jet and an excellent choice for those seeking the ultimate in comfort, performance and elegance on their travels.

How far can a Dassault Falcon 7X fly?

The Dassault Falcon 7X has a long range and is capable of flying long distances. According to the manufacturer, the jet has a maximum range of 5,950 nautical miles, which is equivalent to over 11,000 kilometres. Combined with its ability to take off and land from demanding airports, the 7X can fly from London City Airport to New York without a stopover.

How does the Dassault Falcon 7X differ from the Gulfstream G650?

When Dassault and Gulfstream were working on the next prototype in their series of business jets, the aim was to develop a faster aircraft with a longer range. In addition, the market demanded models that could fly to some of the smallest airports. Both the G650 from Gulfstream and the Falcon 7X from Dassault succeeded in this with flying colours. Nevertheless, there are some subtle differences between the models. The cabin of the G650 is about 10 centimetres higher than that of the 7X. Measured in terms of space in the cabin, the G650, therefore, has a clear advantage. The G650 also offers a cargo hold with an additional cubic metre of volume: Travellers can therefore carry a few extra bags in the Gulfstream Jet. In terms of cruising speed and top speed, the Gulfstream is once again ahead. Comparable, however, is the maximum flight altitude of the competing Long Range Jets. When it comes to the minimum take-off and landing distance required, the Falcon 7X's third engine and its low weight play into its favour: it can also take off and land safely from even smaller airports. In addition, the Dassault's third engine also means risk minimisation: in the event of an engine failure, only a third of the thrust is lost, whereas with the Gulfstream only half would be available.

How many Falcon 7X Long Range Jets have been sold so far?

More than 260 Falcon 7Xs were delivered between mid-2007 and March 2016. With 43 deliveries, 2013 was the French manufacturer's most successful year. Around 45 per cent of the aircraft have their home base in Europe, followed by North America with around 20 per cent. In the first nine years of production, the popular jet series clocked up more than 440,000 flight hours.

Will the Falcon 7X business jets continue to be produced?

Yes, in March 2023, the Falcon 7X will still be part of the aircraft manufacturer's current portfolio.
