Dassault Falcon 7X

The Dassault Falcon 7X Special purpose aircraft joined the Air Force fleet in April 2019.

Powered by three P&W PW307A engines, the Dassault Falcon 7X represents a major capability leap from its predecessor, the smaller CL-604.

Designed and manufactured by Dassault Aviation, the 7X has a standard crew of three (pilot, co-pilot and crew attendant) and can carry up to 14 passengers. It has a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.9 and a range of up to 11,000 km.

The 7X features a high-tech wing, an advanced ‘glass cockpit' with a heads-up display and an infrared enhanced vision system. The 7X also includes satellite communications for improved support for Government connectivity whilst airborne.
