Setting New Standard: Dassault Aviation Launches Falcon 6X Jet
Dassault Aviation has unveiled the Falcon 6X, the most spacious, advanced and versatile twinjet in business aviation, setting new standard in long haul business travels.
The new aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW800 engines equipped with a low maintenance single piece fan and emission reducing Talon combustor.
The Falcon 6X offers the largest, quietest and most comfortable cabin of any aircraft in its class and more cabin volume than any other Falcon ever designed.
The aircraft can accommodate 16 passengers in three distinct lounge areas, affording room for multiple configurations including a large entry way/crew rest area and a spacious rear lounge.
The aircraft comes equipped with the industry’s most advanced digital flight control and cockpit technologies, drawing on heritage from other recent Falcon models and fighter jet programs.
The Falcon 6X has a top speed of Mach 0.90 and a maximum range of 5,500 nautical miles (10,186 km), longer than any other jet in its category.
Based on the Falcon 5X aerodynamics, the Falcon 6X is equipped with an ultra-efficient wing that minimizes the impact of turbulence and a next generation digital flight control system.
The 6X is the first business jet to use a flaperon, which considerably improves control during approach, especially on steep descents.
Falcon 6X is expected to make its first flight in early 2021 and begin deliveries in 2022.
