Video: Dassault Falcon 7X tri-jet business aircraft

French aircraft manufacturer Dassault Falcon's newest business jet is the Falcon 7X. The 7X is the largest Falcon tri-jet business aircraft produced, and is the first business jet with a fly-by-wire interface. Configured to carry eight passengers and four crew (three pilots and a flight attendant), the Falcon 7X is capable of cruising at a speed of mach .9, and has a range of 5,950 nautical miles.

The Falcon 7X went into service in June of 2007. As of the end of 2007, over 200 of the new aircraft type had been sold. The price tag? A mere $40 million. If you're not ready to commit that kind of money to a Falcon 7X of your own, you can book a flight on one through NetJets Europe.

Here's a video about the Dassault Falcon 7X, presented by on YouTube:
