Dassault Aviation to Showcase Falcon 8X, 2000LXS at Singapore Airshow

: Feb 7, 2020 - : 12:26 am

Dassault Aviation will showcase its ultra-long range Falcon 8X flagship and high-performance Falcon 2000LXS at this year’s edition of the Singapore Air Show, which opens February 11 at Changi Exhibition Centre.

Dassault will also be leveraging the event to highlight its new ultra widebody Falcon 6X, currently in development with first flight expected early next year. The 6X will offer the largest cabin cross-section of any purpose-built business jet. A full-scale cabin mockup of the large twinjet will be featured at the static display — its first showing in the region.

The 6,450 nm / 11,945 km Falcon 8X has been a market leader in the Asia/Pacific since the first aircraft was delivered in the region three years ago. The 8X can fly non-stop from Hong Kong to London, Singapore to Zurich or Beijing to New York, but has the versatility to land at restricted airports like London City that are typically inaccessible to large business jets. The aircraft’s spacious cabin is the quietest of any business jet on the market and offers a shower option and a large entryway with a certified crew rest for very long flights.

The 4,000 nm / 7,410 km Falcon 2000LXS has also proven popular with corporate customers in the Asia Pacific region. Equipped with full-length inboard slats and high-mach blended winglets that enhance approach and landing capabilities as well as balanced field length, the 2000LXS offers a short-field capability comparable to smaller midsize business jet models but with a range and comfort level far better than that of those aircraft. The airplane can fly from Singapore to Sydney or Singapore to Dubai.
