Dassault Falcon 8x + Falconeye
Dassault’s Falcon 8x has already proven popular since its launch in 2016, mostly thanks to its ultra-long range (6,450 nm), which allows for direct flights between city pairs such as Hong Kong - Paris, London - Cape Town, and Los Angeles - Beijing. However, the jet is now even more attractive thanks to a stunning new cockpit innovation known as the ‘Falconeye’.
The Falconeye Combined Vision System offers pilots an unprecedented view of the world. It’s the first HUD (heads-up display) that combines synthetic, databasedriven terrain mapping and actual thermal and low-light camera images in a single view, allowing for enhanced situational awareness for flight crews. Developed using military technology, Falconeye is equipped with a fourth-generation multi-sensor camera that generates exceptionally high definition images. In synthetic vision system (SVS) mode, the camera displays a 40° horizontal by 30° vertical field of view with a 1280x1024 resolution – one of the widest angles on any HUD. This ensures full coverage of the viewing area with no tunnel vision. Six different multispectral sensors make up the Falconeye camera package – four for the day time, one for the night time, and one thermal (infrared). The system fuses images from all of these sensors to present the best image to the pilot. One of the sensors can see LED lights, which are found at a growing number of airports. Earlier HUDS showed
only flight instrument information, while later models added infrared imagery. Falconeye is the first HUD to be certified with combined vision.
As well as this exciting innovation, the Falcon 8x jet offers a choice of 30 layouts in its 42.67-foot cabin – the largest in the Falcon fleet. Noise and cabin altitude are kept low, and the air quality high. Complete connectivity is possible within the cabin, which is Falconcabin HD+ equipped and Wifi capable. The Falconcabin HD+ cabin management system gives passengers control over their environment from anywhere in the cabin through their Apple devices. Skybox – the wireless media server with vast itunes video and music capacity – is also available as an option. The jet’s cockpit is equipped with an EASY flight deck as well as a Honeywall next-generation 3D color weather radar system with enhanced turbulence detection capability.
The Falcon 8x is powered by Pratt and Whitney Canada turbofans which deliver more pounds of thrust per each pound of fuel, resulting in a reduction of NOX emissions that rank 30% lower the strictest of today’s standards. The operating cost of the Falcon 8x is 35% lower than its competitors. Flying at a maximum altitude of 51,000 feet, its maximum speed is .90 Mach.
What’s more, the spacious Falcon 8x cabin can accommodate much more living space than previous models. Best of all, the space is highly configurable to meet the needs of each owner or operator. One can opt for a comfortable threelounge cabin with a shower aft and crew rest provisions forward, or even go for a shorter entryway to add yet more lounge space. Other possibilities among the 30 different cabin layouts include a large entryway with spacious, lie-flat crew quarters, and a truly grand galley for multiple meals.
Now with Falconeye as a further option (selected by the vast majority of buyers), the Falcon 8x is one of the best models of its kind in the jet market today. Future capabilities for Falconeye include operational credit to descend to 100 feet using the HUD during instrument approaches, offering the ability to land in conditions that normally would require diverting to another airport. Meanwhile, the innovation is already taking the Falcon experience to a new level, illuminating the darkness outside of the cockpit.
