Best of the Best 2011: Business Aircraft: UltraLong-Range: Dassault Falcon 7X

The Dassault Falcon 7X (201.440.6700, www.dassaultfalcon.com) is perfect for travelers in need of a versatile jet that excels at both medium- and long-range trips. The $50.1 million aircraft nimbly handles short runways, high altitude, and hot weather, thanks to such aerodynamic features as winglets and leading-edge wing slats. Its three engines are efficient enough for the 7X to burn less fuel than many two-engine aircraft do when making similar flights. The jet seats a maximum of 19 passengers, cruises at 573 mph, and has a 6,800-mile range (when carrying eight passengers) that enables it to fly nonstop along nearly all of the world’s most frequently traveled routes.
