Aircraft Guide: Long Range Executive Jets
Dassault Falcon 7X (11-15 Seats) This exceptional three engined jet is the very latest addition to the extremely succesful Falcon range of aircraft, built by the French manufacturer Dassault, with over 40 years of experience of building fighter jets... The 7X is in fact the first executive jet to employ full ‘Fly By Wire’ controls, as seen in the Airbus group of airliners. It has very good take off and landing performance; this allows it to use many of the smaller regional airports. It has the certification necessary to operate in and out of London City Airport (the approach to which is steep). The 7X has a 6ft 2 inch ‘stand up’ ultra-quiet cabin, with a fully enclosed lavatory, and a full galley. Even at the maximum operating altitude of 51,000ft, the 7X maintaines a cabin pressurised to a 6,000ft atmosphere, 2,000ft less than most jets (including airliners), thus increasing passenger comfort and reducing fatigue.

Cabin Height 6ft 2 inches (1.88m)
