The Falcon range
Dassault Falcon Jet is a subsidiary of the French aerospace group Dassault Aviation. The manufacturer operates military and business jets and has sold more than 10,000 aircraft in almost 90 countries. Dassault’s first Falcon flew on May 4th, 1963.
The Falcon range now comprises six models. Its latest, the Falcon 10X, is currently under construction and is due to enter service in 2025.
The reputation of the manufacturer and of this range of aircraft is possible thanks to numerous competitive advantages :
- the technological advancement

In fact, Falcon business jets claim to consume on average 30% to 50% less fuel than its antagonists. This family of business jets is one of the leaders in the large-cabin airplane market, and its reputation is well established.
The aircraft manufacturer Dassault makes almost three quarters of its turnover from Falcon sales.
They are also used by the French army for maritime surveillance purposes.
The 6 Falcon private jets
You can find information on each aircraft on our blog. But, here is a short presentation of the Falcon fleet. We present 6 models of Falcon private jets from the manufacturer Dassault Systeme.
The Falcon 10X: Falcon’s latest private jet model
It’s Dassault’s latest little gem. This new model of private jet, the Falcon 10X will be the largest and most powerful corporate jet ever designed by the manufacturer Dassault. The aim of this new aircraft is to challenge its competitors, Bombardier and Gulfstream.
Production was announced on May 6, 2022, with deliveries and entry into service scheduled for late 2025. The Falcon 10X promises luxurious business travel in an ultra-spacious, state-of-the-art cabin.
The 10X brings together all the excellence of Dassault’s equipment. This long-haul aircraft is specifically designed to combine speed and safety. This is particularly true of its carbon fiber alloy, which is very resistant. It can fly transcontinental flights, such as New York to Shanghai, without difficulty, as well as to other destinations that would be impossible without a stopover with civil aviation.
The Falcon 10X promises excellence, especially with its FalconEye system, which allows it to fly in very low visibility. We also note its great interior luxury, which is promised to be extremely bright and spacious. This luminosity is possible thanks to the size of its windows, which are larger than those of the previous Falcon models, which we will see below.

This high-end aircraft was launched in 2016. Derived from the more powerful Falcon 7X, the autonomy of the Falcon 8X allows it to connect most of the world’s major capitals.

Dassault promises with this model an improvement on the previous 7X, notably with the quietest cabin on the market and its comfort. This long-haul aircraft can connect major cities as we mentioned. For example, it can fly transcontinental flights, such as Beijing to New York.
The Falcon 8X also uses technology borrowed directly from the famous Rafale. A guarantee of efficiency and safety. Like its big brother, the Falcon 10X, it has the optional FalconEye, which enables it to navigate even in poor visibility.
