SINGAPORE: Show debut for Dassault Falcon 8X

Dassault Aviation has brought its new flagship, the Falcon 8X, to Singapore, with the ultra-long-range jet making its show debut.

The French airframer believes the 6,450nm (11,900km)-range trijet, which also boasts a 13m (42ft)-long cabin, is ideally suited to the Asia-Pacific market.

"Combined with its range and a level of fuel efficiency and short-field performance unmatched for an aircraft of this size, this makes the aircraft ideal for the Asia-Pacific," it says.

The 8X entered service in October 2016, with the first example arriving in the Asia-Pacific in late 2017.

A 2000LXS twinjet is presented alongside the 8X in the Singapore static park.
