At its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.80, 5X will be able to fly eight passengers 5200 nm and land with NBAA IFR reserves.

Falcon 5X has a brand-new nose with the largest cockpit windows ever fitted to a Falcon Jet. The steeply sloped nose increases visibility on steep approaches.

24 cabin windows, the largest ever installed on a Falcon Jet, will provide the same amount of daylight illumination per cubic foot of cabin volume as G650. Cabin cross section is the largest of any purpose-built business jet, even wider than G650.

The aft stateroom can be configured with left and right three-place divans that convert into full, flat berths as shown at the Falcon Jet 5X mockup at the NBAA static display.

The aft stateroom has clear, electrochromic window bulkheads that turn opaque at the push of a button.

Standard cabin layout has three seating areas. The middle section is a four-seat conference grouping on the left with a casual perch on the right (as shown at right above).

Each passenger is afforded personal space with a sidewall storage pocket, personal electronic charging port and touchscreen control panel (see different angle below). Pictograms are used in place of language-specific passenger advisements.

The fore galley will have business aviation's first skylight to provide bright daylight illumination. An electrochromic filter will diminish unwanted glare.
