Dassault has designed and installed a shower in the aft cabin section of a Falcon 7X, a challenging job despite the large size of the business jet. For certification, the manufacturer’s engineers demonstrated that a water overflow would not affect critical equipment. In addition, designers had to find space for the water tank, heater and redundant pumps. This required the bulkhead to be moved forward, prompting the need for a new cabin layout. In the shower, the passenger can either stand or sit down and use a showerhead or the “rain sky” ceiling.
