GROUNDBREAKING MEETS SOUND BREAKING
6X high Mach tests reach new speeds

 

In March, Dassault test pilots pushed the Falcon 6X beyond its maximum operating speed of Mach .90. In a subsequent test, they pinned the speedometer at Mach .97 and the aircraft performed flawlessly, proving its structural robustness and superior maneuverability. It was another success in an already successful flight test program. And it was captured on film. Now you can share the excitement in a brilliant new video. So, buckle up and click below.

BUSY, BUSY, BUSY
Falcon 10X enters next phase

 

Things are getting real in the development of the Falcon 10X ultra-long range business jet. That is to say, the first structural elements, equipment and sub-assemblies are being built at Dassault facilities around France and Switzerland, including its new Factory 4.0 smart manufacturing facility in Seclin. A 10X test bench in Saint-Cloud and Istres, France, will develop and test systems and flight controls. In June, we will launch a newsletter dedicated to the 10X to keep you up-to-date on this penthouse in the sky as it progresses to first flight in early 2024.

SCIENCE FICTION? FALCON FACT
Falcon 8X takes on Star Wars Canyon

 

In January, a Falcon 8X went where no business jet has gone before (forgive the Star Trek reference) when it winged through the famed Star Wars canyon in Southern California. Observers who gather regularly to watch military jets fly close to the ground were astonished to see an aircraft the size of the 8X perform with the nimbleness of a fighter jet. Of course, with so much 8X technology derived from the Rafale, fighting spirit comes naturally.

UK Ministry of Defense chooses the 900LX

 

Two Falcon 900LX business jets will soon join the ranks of the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force. They have been selected to replace jets currently providing VIP transport for senior defense and government officials, as well as members of the royal family. The 900LX jets represent a significant improvement over the old fleet in terms of increased range, reduced operating expense, and superior fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
