Dassault’s flagship private jet, the Falcon 8X ultra-long range three-engine jet, has received approval to operate at London City Airport (LCY), one of the world’s most challenging airfields.

The Falcon 8X has the longest range of any Falcon, 6,450nm, and can fly from Los Angeles or Hong Kong to London City, nonstop.

“The ability to fly in and out of London City, and other hard-to-reach airports, affords a measure of flexibility and a significant operating benefit to our customers,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation.

“Airport performance is among the top design priorities for every Falcon that Dassault has produced.”

London City Airport (LCY) has a short runway and steep approach and climb-out.

In addition to its short field capability, the Falcon 8X features the most advanced digital flight control system, the quietest cabin and the largest selection of standard cabin configurations in business aviation. It is also available with Dassault’s new FalconEye Combined Vision System, the first head-up display to combine synthetic and enhanced vision capabilities.
