In 2012 with the entry into service of the Gulfstream G650 (Model GVI), a new era of Ultra-Long-Range (> 7000 nm) purpose-built Business Jets was launched. Although highly impacted by continuous delays and cost overruns with its CSeries commercial aircraft family, Bombardier had to respond with the launch of the Global 7000 and 8000 family program that soon converged with the delivery of the current industry flagship, the Global 7500. The Ultra-Long-Range offerings will soon be extended with the addition of the state-of-the-art Gulfstream G700 and G800 and a clean sheet design from Dassault Aviation, the extra widebody Falcon 10X. Let’s look at what’s today the most advanced and dynamic segment of Business Aviation!
The Red Dot Awards are among the most distinguished prizes in the design world and a sought-after mark of brand excellence.
The 10X features the industry’s largest cabin combined with the most advanced technology on a purpose-built Business Jet when entering into service at the end of 2025.
The full-scale cabin mockup for the new Falcon 10X will be displayed at the NBAA-BACE convention this week in Las Vegas. After the show, the mockup will remain in the US for individual customer tours. A second mockup will be available to customers at Dassault’s Paris-Le Bourget showroom.
