Dassault Falcon 7X

The third Royal Australian Air Force Falcon 7x arrives into Defence Establishment Fairbairn.
The Dassault Falcon 7X Special purpose aircraft joined the Air Force fleet in April 2019.
 
The Dassault Falcon 7X, powered by three P&W PW307A engines 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 and 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.
