Dassault Falcon launches new interior concept for the Falcon 7X

Dassault Aviation : 12 May, 2009  (Company News)
Dassault Falcon has unveiled a new cabin interior design for the 5,950 nm Falcon 7X. The program is the result of a collaborative effort between Dassault and DesignworksUSA, a global design consultancy and subsidiary of BMW Group. Falcon 7X s/n 44, which is presented on the Dassault static display at Geneva Airport, was used in the development of this new interior which will be available as an option for deliveries starting in the first quarter of 2011.
The Falcon 7X has the longest range of any Falcon business jet. Special attention was given to enhancing its cabin comfort for flights lasting up to 13 hours. Since its entry into service in 2007, the 7X cabin has set a new standard for business jets. It presents a large and bright cabin with 28 windows which are 10% bigger than previous Falcons. It also features a low in flight cabin altitude of 6,000 feet, even while flying at 51,000 feet, and an advanced temperature control system that maintains the environment to within one degree throughout the entire cabin. The 7X is also praised by its passengers for its 'library quiet' cabin which is the result of breakthroughs in design, materials and cushioned engine mounts.

'Our collaboration with Designworks USA further enhanced the advanced features and the comfort of the airplane. Their unique design successfully integrates functionality, technology and ergonomics into the Falcon 7X cabin. The result is an elegant yet sensible interior that meets the challenges of today’s demanding business environment,” noted John Rosanvallon, President and CEO Dassault Falcon.

Utilizing multi-disciplinary teams, DesignworksUSA’s Transportation Design Group merged its design, materials and finish development skills together and created a more integrated process that leveraged each group’s expertise to create a strategically targeted and unique interior design.

The new Falcon 7X cabin introduces subtle curves throughout the interior. A single arc carpet element visually stretches the cabin and connects the interior front to back. Curved bulkheads visually expand the main cabin volume while subtle curves in the galley and main cabin create better flow. Cabin lighting techniques feature up-wash and down-wash ambient lights as well as light strips. The combination of new lighting and more contrast between the carpet, the side walls and headliners emphasize openness, spaciousness and comfort. The final result is elegant and styled cabin fused with function.

'With this emphasis on the passenger, Dassault is defining a new level of flying experience, uniting their aeronautical passion with a design that celebrates timeless elegance' said Verena Kloos, BMW Group DesignworksUSA President.
