The Falcon 900 Trijet series of jets began in 1986 when the first production aircraft was delivered. The combination of the 3 engines, extra wide cabin and long range gave the Falcon 900 unique performance capabilities and make it a perfect aircraft for higher altitude or shorter runway departures which require a large number of passengers and/or a non-stop flight. The Trijet design is unique to Dassault Falcons with several variations including the Falcon 50, 50EX, 900, 900B, 900C, 900EX, 900EX EASy, 900LX, 900DX, 7X and 8X. The combined three engines produce 18k lbs. of centerline thrust with two engines mounted on either side of the fuselage plus one in the top, center, back of the jet.
The Falcon 7X, launched in 2007 is an improved version of the 900 with a newly designed high-speed, swept wing and about 20% more cabin. Compared to the Falcon 900EX, the 7X can fly about 30 mph faster and 1,200 miles further to a total of 6,586 miles non-stop. The 900EX has a lower Balanced Field Length at 5,084 feet vs. 5,460 feet for the 7X which is still impressive when compared to the Gulfstream V which requires over 6k feet of runway. The Falcon 7X is the only jet which can fly non-stop from London City Airport to Teterboro non-stop.
The Falcon 7X is the first fully fly-by-wire business jet which is technology derived from military aircraft and offers the same advanced avionics package as the 900EX EAsy. The cabin contains 1,848 cubic feet of space with an additional 131 cubic feet of baggage capacity making it very comfortable for up to 14 passengers and is about 10% smaller than the competing GV. The cabin also has an in-flight cabin altitude of just 4,800 feet at 45,000 ft. as well as an advanced ‘quieting acoustics’ which greatly reduce fatigue on longer trips. Over 270 Falcon 7X’s have been built since 2007 and the latest version and the fleet has now logged over 550,000 flight hours.
