Owning and flying a Falcon entitles you to the highest levels of safety, reliability, performance and efficiency. Dassault Falcon Customer Service provides industry-leading support wherever and whenever,
Whatever it Takes®.
Dassault Aviation Chairman and CEO Eric Trappier has congratulated Pratt & Whitney Canada on Transport Canada’s approval of the latest member of the company’s PW800 family of high-efficiency engines, which powers Dassault’s new extra widebody Falcon 6X.
Dassault Aviation is a family company. A family with a heritage of integrity and excellence. We have and always will invest in innovation and technology to an extraordinary level. And we will always be the best in everything we offer our customers.
Falcons fly demanding missions every day. Flying into short mountain airstrips, crossing oceans, and sometimes landing in near-zero/zero conditions. But Falcons also perform specialized roles for governments, medevac operators and scientific organizations. In fact, about 10 percent of the entire Falcon fleet are out there, day in and day out, supporting those vital missions.
What makes Falcons such good multi-missions aircraft? High flexibility, impressive payloads, robust construction, advanced flight controls, and an engineering team that can adapt them to unique requirements.
Dassault Aviation has delivered 200+ multi-mission aircraft in more than 40 countries.
Falcons used for signals intelligence (SIGINT) missions require complex systems integration. External sensors and onboard stations analyze radio traffic and radar emissions, and relay data to command centers on the ground. Dassault engineers have long experience in military customization and work closely with SIGINT system providers to integrate intelligence gathering systems into the airframe.
Falcons make excellent air ambulances, not only due to their high payload and long-range capabilities, but because they can access smaller airports that may be closest to patients needing urgent care. Moreover, the Dassault engineering organization has the experience and talent to transform them into advanced airborne intensive care units, when that level of life-saving technology is required.
Falcons equipped for medical evacuation can carry out mission across great distances, keeping patients stable and as comfortable as possible, while providing the space for medical teams to accompany the patient.
In a medical crisis, adaptability can be the key to successful outcomes. Dassault engineers and crews have been called upon to transform Falcons originally outfitted for government VIP transport into flying hospitals for long-haul transport of critically ill patients who require specialized care, such as intubations and ventilation, and rigorous procedures for protection of both patient and crew members.
Because of the compactness and capability of modern medical equipment, it is possible to engineer a Falcon cabin to the level of the best-equipped intensive care units. Oxygen systems can be modified for hospital-type support. Electrical systems can be upgraded to ensure power for all medical systems aboard. Patient loading systems can be installed to make it safe and easy to transfer non-ambulatory patients into the cabin. On well-equipped medevac Falcons, medical teams can perform surgery, emergency resuscitation and take X-ray images while aboard.
The aircraft can carry highly specialized life-support equipment, including a neo-natal oxygen supply system and an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machine, which provides heart-lung bypass support. They can also carry a portable ventilator, ECG monitor and defibrillator, a micropump, infusion pump, blood gas analyzer, ultrasound equipment and a constant-temperature blood bank.In short—they carry a modern array of life-saving equipment, all within the confines of a Falcon cabin.
Falcons adapted for maritime use patrol coastlines, scan the world’s oceans for surface threats, and take part in naval training exercises and rescues. They also track environmental hazards and search for vessels in distress. These aircraft carry specialized search equipment, including advanced radar and optical search systems. Some feature oversize windows and can be outfitted for dropping rescue equipment.
Testbed aircraft are used by national research organizations to evaluate new systems and equipment that advance the aeronautical art, including new propulsion technologies, aerodynamic innovations, and digital control technologies. Such programs are aided by substantial support from an OEM’s engineering organization. Dassault can provide extensive assistance with unique modifications.
A head-of-state aircraft is an elegantly-appointed business aircraft. It is a constantly-connected, ultra-secure environment with specialized gear for encrypted communications and other safety measures. Head-of-state/VIP customers value their Falcons for all their traditional virtues, including high dispatch reliability and unique performance capabilities. More than other business jets, Falcons can deliver VIPs to the scene of the action, even when that entails access to challenging airports, whether short fields or those requiring steep approaches.
