Falcon 7X

The sidestick falls naturally to the outboard hand of each pilot.
Oneof the units that converts electronic commands from the DFCS system into flight control movement with hydraulic pressure providing the muscle.
The 7X is the first “all new” Falcon since the three-engine Model 50 was developed in the 1970s.
The rear fuselage’s ‘area rule’ (sometimes called the ‘Coke bottle’ shaping) maximizes aerodynamic efficiency where the engine pylons intersect.
The 7X also has the largest cabin of any Falcon ever designed, befitting its long-range capability.
The 7X’s winglet is a first for a Falcon, though soon other models will have them, too.
This is a view of the 7X rolling onto final. The devices sticking out along the glareshield are cameras and other equipment used to collect flight test data that are not, of course, in the standard airplane. Note that all information necessary to fly the 7X, including engine, basic system and communication data, is displayed on the PFD in front of each pilot. The two big MFDs are being used to show a moving map, and synoptic data of aircraft systems on the lower display.
The airplane flown for this report was a prototype still configured with movable ballast and an array of flight test equipment. Complete 7X airplanes are now being delivered from the Little Rock completion center where customers have great latitude to select the interior configuration and furnishings.
