1. Dassault Falcon 7X/8X
The Falcon 7X by Dassault is a very distinctive Tri-jet amongst its Falcon lineup. The three engine design helps in covering large transcontinental distances as well as taking off and landing on shorter runways. With a range of 6000 nautical miles, these private jets can cover almost all the global destinations across the world. The Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307 turbofan engines produce over 6000 pounds of thrust. Thus making them one of the fastest private jets in the world achieving a top speed of Mach 0.90.
Inside the cabin is three separate seating zones designed to comfortably fit 12-16 persons depending upon the size you buy. At 1.9m high, you can stand straight easily. The passenger amenities include the Rockwell Collins falcon cabin management system with 3 LCDs in different sections. Equipped with Dual CD/DVD/MP3 system and Ethernet ports and WiFi, you can enjoy all those long flight hours.
The front-facing seats have recliner features which can be converted into nice comfy beds. There is a separate conference room for all those in-flight business meetings. The flight deck is loaded with upgraded avionics allowing for safe global travel and next-gen compliance.
All these Bells & whistles and best in class performance comes at a price tag of $54 million going all the way up to $60 million for the big brother, the 8X.

The silent inside, even when the engine is on, is achieved by the Gulfstream’s cutting-edge noise reduction technology. The cabin is divided into 4 compartments. Individual seats in the front, a common area for entertainment, a conference cum dining area and private quarters at the rear.
The cabin management can be done by individual iPods for every passenger. The in-flight entertainment is such that you can enjoy a movie collectively or individually. The headsets or loudspeakers embedded in the cabin provide a good sounding environment. With 6’5” tall and 8’6” wide, there is more than enough room for a hassle-free passage.
The G650 is the biggest, fastest, longest range and also the most comfortable private jets ever built by Gulfstream. And thus, it costs a whopping $68 million. And with Such a smart cabin design and fuel-efficient high performance makes a 15-hour flight seem a delight.
We believe that new advancements in technology will dramatically change the air charter industry over the next several years. We believe that new aircraft designs, advanced computer technology and high-speed Internet on jet charter flights will increase the efficiency and productivity of Private jets.
