As everyone knows these days, range is king, and the 5,200 nm range of the 5X is an impressive figure, especially since it will do it on less fuel. That range is for a real trip too, with eight passengers and three crew members flown at Mach .80. Max operating speed for the 5X is .90, so it’s as fast as the 7X, and Dassault expects that shorter flights will be able to be flown at very high speeds, though it hasn’t quoted a figure yet. Landing speeds are as impressively low as the cruise speeds are high, with a typical VREF approach speed of around 105 knots, which is as slow as the best midsize jets. New generation carbon brakes with brake-by-wire, along with the flight control system managing the drag devices and the big thrust reversers on the Silvercrest engines, will help the jet get down and stopped in a hurry.
