Many aviation companies realize profits through both military- and civilian-minded avenues and the French concern of Dassault is no different - manufacturing their advanced "Rafale" multi-role fighter to select military customers and their Falcon line to the business world. The Falcon line has emerged as a long-running family of business jets beginning with the "Falcon 10" of 1971. Since then, the product has evolved across various designs to become the all-modern "Falcon 7X" and now the newly announced "Falcon 8X". The Falcon 8X was debuted at 2014 EBACE ("European Business Aviation Convention and Exposition") and follows Dassault's other relatively new announcement in its wide-body "Falcon 5X" product announced back in October 2013.

Based on the preceding Falcon 7X model, the Falcon 8X is billed as a longer-range, larger cabin business jet alternative utilizing refined swept-back wings (featuring winglets) and a revised "tri-jet" turbofan engines for maximum fuel efficiency. Additional windows along the passenger cabin walls provide increased natural lighting while the cabin has been increased some 3.5 feet in length over that of the Falcon 7X (the longest cabin of any available Falcon jet in fact). Engineers have also increased internal fuel stores to achieve the desired operational ranges. A standard operating crew will be three in an all-digital cockpit (based on the Falcon 5X) with a passenger-hauling capability of up to eight in business-level comfort with a Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) listed at 73,000lbs. Power will be served through 3 x Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307 series turbofans (6,722lbs thrust each) allowing the jet to fly some fourteen hours out, giving it important access to critical business markets such as Shanghai, New York and Sao Paulo.
