Demonstrating unmatched airport performance, Dassault's Falcon 8X recently set a new coast-to-coast speed record, flying from Santa Monica and its notoriously short 3,500 foot runway to Teterboro, New Jersey. The flight took just 4 hours and 28 minutes with overall poor tailwinds, averaging just five knots, over the trip.
"Business aviation is about flying precisely where you need to be. Today's flight on the Falcon 8X embodies everything that advanced design can accomplish: unparalleled airport performance, a quiet noise footprint and extended capability, all in a large cabin business jet," said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. "This is not possible in any other business jet in the ultra-long range class."
