Dassault’s flagship, the Falcon 8X ultra-long range trijet, received approval to operate at London City Airport (LCY), one of the world’s most challenging airfields.

The 6,450 nm /11,945 km Falcon 8X has the longest range of any Falcon and can fly from Los Angeles or Hong Kong to London City, nonstop.

Dassault Aviation is the only business jet manufacturer whose entire in-production fleet is certified to operate at London City (LCY). This includes the Falcon 7X and 900LX trijets and 2000S/LXS twins. Located in the heart of London’s financial district, London City features some of the most restrictive steep approach and noise abatement regulations in business aviation.

"The ability to fly in and out of London City, and other hard-to-reach airports, affords a measure of flexibility and a significant operating benefit to our customers,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. “Airport performance is among the top design priorities for every Falcon that Dassault has produced.”

In addition to its superior short field capability, the Falcon 8X features the most advanced digital flight control system, the quietest cabin and the largest selection of standard cabin configurations in business aviation. It is also available with Dassault’s new FalconEye Combined Vision System, the first head-up display to combine synthetic and enhanced vision capabilities.
