FALCONS ON THE RISENews from around the fleet
FALCON 6X GAINING GROUNDMomentum builds for 2023
It’s full speed ahead for the Falcon 6X flight test campaign with three development aircraft flying daily, having logged more than 1,000 hours, including certification flights with EASA authorities. They follow extreme temperature and high-altitude tests performed earlier this summer. In addition, a first production aircraft executed a month-long reliability tour in July. Meanwhile, three other aircraft are under completion, the first 6X simulator is active at CAE Burgess Hill, and EASA has certified the aircraft’s PW-812D engines. It’s been a remarkable year, as will 2023, when the first delivery is expected.
FALCON 6X MAKING HEADLINESOnly good news
As the Falcon 6X continues its journey to certification and first delivery, it’s stirring up much interest in the aviation press. A lengthy flight report in Aviation International News by Editor-in-Chief Matt Thurber provides an in-depth look at all the advanced features that make the 6X a pilot’s dream. Meanwhile, writing for Business Jet Traveler, Mark Huber completes his review with a walk through the 6X’s magnificent cabin and all its innovations.

MOUNTAIN MARVELFalcon 8X makes short work of Gstaad
The website for Gstaad Airport quaintly notes it has a “non-standard” traffic pattern. That’s an understatement. Pilots twist and turn through alpine peaks before landing on the runway’s 3,445 useable feet (because of displaced thresholds). The 8X handles this with ease. Even in the high-density altitude of summer. A Dassault Aviation demo aircraft flew into Gstaad in mid-August and was displayed for a few days. Visitors were amazed to see such a big jet there.

NOTES FROM THE FIELDCustomer service making news
Thierry Lamant takes on new role
For years, Thierry Lamant has had an interest in Sustainable Aviation Fuels. The 27-year Dassault veteran’s new position as Director Falcon Operations Sustainability is a natural fit. Thierry is a member of several company working groups focusing on the environment and SAF issues and an observer for several industry organizations. Largely because of these efforts, Paris-Le Bourget is one of a growing number of airports offering SAF.
MAINTENANCE À LA CARTE
New FalconCare package announced
The popular FalconCare program, which provides operators a means of managing maintenance costs, has added a new offering to its Essential and Elite packages. FalconCare Select allows operators to tailor their coverage to suit their situation, only paying for what they need or want.
