Dassault Aviation’s flagship
Dassault Aviation and Aerobask are proud to announce they have entered into a partnership agreement for the development of Dassault Aviation’s Falcon 8X for the X-Plane 12 platform from Laminar Research.
The Falcon 8X is Dassault Aviation’s flagship and best in class, ultra-long range tri-jet, and the longest bizjet ever built by Dassault Aviation. You can find all details about this fantastic aircraft on its official page.
Our model is developed in collaboration and under the supervision of Dassault Aviation, with step-by-step validation according to their specifications. With a strong experience in development of glass-cockpit airplanes and thanks to privileged access to the real aircraft, we aim at delivering the most realistic experience flying the Falcon 8X.
