Dassault Falcon 8X: Celebrating Its Inaugural Flight from Bordeaux

On 6th February the eagerly anticipated Falcon 8X completed its maiden flight from Bordeaux Merignac Airport. This first flight lasted 1hour and 45 minutes and was completed without a hitch, marking a successful beginning to an intensive flight test campaign.

At LunaJets, we love Dassault’s aircraft, which always succeed in combining sleek, modern design with ultra-high performance. This new flagship of the Falcon range excels in every department, offering over 3ft of extra cabin length than its predecessor, the 7X, as well as having a state-of-the-art upgraded engine that greatly enhances its short runway performance. The Falcon 8X will be a true ultra-long range aircraft, capable of completing uninterrupted flights from Hong Kong to Paris or London to Cape Town and also boasts some of the best fuel efficiency in its class.

LunaJets is always aiming to be at the forefront of the industry, providing the best aircraft at the best price for our clients. We are therefore delighted that the Falcon 8X is forecast to be certified in 2016 and we can’t wait to organise the private charter of this revolutionary jet.
