The Falcon 5x is expected to be certified in 2017 and for those of us who are big fans of the Falcon jets… this is pretty exciting! The 5X is a large-cabin twinjet which is expected to up the ante for cabin comfort, aircraft performance and ease of maintaining.

The expectations surrounding the 5X have existed among rumors for years with Dassault finally giving head to the rumors in late 2013.

Here are some of the eye popping specifics:

  • Expected to cost around $45 million new
  • 8.86 feet fuselage diameter (larger than the 8X)
  • 6.5 feet interior height
  • 1,766 cubic feet volume
  • Seating for 12 passengers

Those figures show us that this 5X will actually be larger than the trijet 7X that we love so much!

How about operations and fuel efficiency you might ask? Well, how about 50% more fuel efficient and costing 30% less to operate that similar models available from competitors? Pretty impressive, right? Dassault didn’t just think of the passengers though… they are incorporating pilot seats that recline 130 degrees so that one crew member can rest while the other flies the aircraft. This bird also boasts a 5,200 nautical mile range (approximately 11.5 hours of flying) and can fly as fast as Mach 0.9 (approximately 600 mph).
