G550, Global or Falcon 7X?


#1

Just curoious if you had the choice btween a G550, Global or the Falcon 7X which one you would take and why!!! Not that I could ever afford one, but it’s nice to dream.


#2

Falcon 7X because I like jets with 3 engines better than jets with 2.


#3

May have 3 engines, but only 1 thrust reverser :open_mouth:


#4

Yeah, I never quite understood that. Why only give it one thrust reverser?


#5

cost and weight. And the Falcon lands fairly slow thanks to a great wing so 3 TR’s are not really required.


#6

…except when they are! :laughing:


#7

Have you ever heard how LOUD the Falcon’s are with one reverser??? Any more and we’d be breaking all manner of noise limits!


#8

Having worked on all three of these aircraft i would pick a gulfstream anyday. Globals are the caddilac of the skys where a gulfstream is the porche. Falcons are the french equal of a learjet. So if your flyin around on a learjet your just a poor rich man.


#9

Gulfstream. Any day.


#10

None of the above. I’ll take a G650, please. :smiley:


#11

I’ll take a Falcon if I’m doing the driving, a Global if I’m sitting in the back, and a Gulfstream if I have to deal with maintenance.
