FALCON 10X ACTIVITY RAMPS UP
its grand unveiling in a virtual ceremony in May 2021, the Falcon 10X
is virtual no more. Major structures and systems are under construction
across Europe and North America. The detailed design of the aircraft is
nearly complete, and Dassault factories are moving into high gear. A
first all-composite wing is in final assembly and is ready for testing
at Dassault in Bordeaux-Mérignac. First engines and avionics are also
undergoing tests, as are subsystems, from landing gear components to
environmental controls. All of these will flow into the Mérignac
facility, where final assembly begins in 2023. Certification is planned
for late 2025.
FLIGHT TESTING BEGINS BEFORE THE AIRCRAFT FLIES
new aircraft programs, systems testing begins on the ground in
structures resembling simulators, sometimes called "iron birds."
Dassault calls them "test benches," and several are already in use. An
avionics test bench equipped with the revolutionary NeXus flight deck
and a new-generation Digital Flight Control System is running at the
Design Office in Saint-Cloud near Paris. There's a fuel test bench at
the Istres test center and a new environmental bench in Bordeaux. The
objective is to ensure systems maturity before the first test aircraft
THE NEXT BIG STEP IN DIGITAL FLIGHT CONTROL
a head start on competitors thanks to more than 40 years of fighter
aircraft systems development, Dassault arguably produces the most
advanced digital flight controls in business aviation. That history
began with the Falcon 7X, the first fly-by-wire business jet, which
first flew in 2005. Updated on the 8X, it took a generational leap with
the 6X, adding secondary surfaces to the system (flaps, slats, airbrakes
and flaperons, plus nose wheel steering). The 10X pioneers a unique
Smart Throttle that ties into the digital flight control system and
makes possible new capabilities such as automated noise abatement
climbs, reducing workload in the critical takeoff phase. Another direct
transfer from fighters: an automated recovery mode, should the aircraft
enter an unusual attitude in a wake turbulence encounter, for example.
No other business jet has anything like it.

PEARL 10X ENGINE IS PURRING ALONG
Pearl 10X is the most powerful in the new Pearl series at over 18,000
pounds thrust. It’s the most powerful Rolls-Royce business jet engine to
date, and the most advanced. The first engine surpassed target thrust
levels on its first test stand run at the Rolls facility in Dahlewitz,
Germany. It has been tested for over 1,000 hours, including runs on 100
percent sustainable aviation fuel. Current jets are limited to 50
percent SAF. But the SAF age is just beginning, with greater quantities
to come at more places and lower prices.

TOUR THE 10X FLIGHT DECK AND CABIN
through Little Rock, Arkansas, or Paris-Le Bourget? Dassault is ready
to give prospective buyers a Falcon 10X interior tour. At the Paris
showroom, the mockup is modular, allowing the interiors team to
reconfigure the cabin over a short lunch or a long coffee break to show
alternative arrangements. It demonstrates the 10X's section length
modularity, allowing for such things as intimate entertainment centers
or extra-long staterooms. Better for designing one's penthouse in the
sky and for maximum range configurations.
ANOTHER FALCON AWARD
awards keep coming for Falcon aircraft. This time for the Falcon 10X,
which recently won a coveted Red Dot award for interior design. A Red
Dot Award is among the most distinguished prizes in the design world and
a highly sought-after honor. In other good news, the Robb Report, which
reviews premium products for high-net-worth individuals, has named the
Falcon 10X the Best of the Best in Ultra-Long-Range Jets. It was cited
for its largest-in-class interior, extended range and speed, and
GENEVA HOSTS TWO EBACE DEBUTS
Falcon 10X mockup had a hugely successful debut at NBAA-BACE 2021 and
most recently at the EBACE convention in Geneva. Its sheer volume and
elegant design were the talk of the show. Also debuting at EBACE was a
fully completed Falcon 6X which now embarks on a route-proving world
tour. You can see both at the October NBAA-BACE in Orlando and the Dubai
Airshow in December.
