Dassault Aviation Rolls Out New Falcon 6X

The final assembly team at Dassault Aviation in Bordeaux-Merignac, France, recently opened the doors of the Charles Lindbergh Hall to showcase the company’s newest and most advanced aircraft, the Falcon 6X.
 
Though COVID-19 forced the company to stage a virtual unveiling, the event had a global reach. Customers and operators from all over the world logged on to see the aircraft make its first public appearance. The live-streamed world premiere was reportedly a great success, attracting a record number of visitors.
 
The rollout paves the way for completion of the ground test programme and the extensive systems checks that must be performed before the first flight, which is scheduled to occur early next year.
 
In recent months, Pratt & Whitney Canada completed ground and flight tests of the aircraft’s PW812D engine, clearing the path to first flight of the 6X.
 
With a 5,500 nm (10,186 km) range and top speed of Mach .90, the Falcon 6X can connect passengers to major business centres far and wide. It can fly from London to Hong Kong or from Los Angeles to Moscow nonstop. 
 
The Falcon 6X can also perform safe approaches as low as only 109 knots, slower than other business jets. This allows the 6X, like other Falcons, to safely access small airports equipped with ultra-short runways.
