  1. Dassault Falcon 6X Accelerates Into Detail Design Phase
    "Everything is on track for the Falcon 6X to begin deliveries in 2022," said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation, at the annual NBAA Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE). A full-scale mockup of the 6X's spacious cabin has been on display on the Dassault static display (#2648) at the show. Production of initial long-cycle structural parts has begun and development tests of Pratt & Whitney Canada's PW812D power plant are progressing well. Aircraft architecture has been frozen and contracts with all major Falcon 6X program partners have been signed.
  2. The schedule is quite tight for this new aircraft but because it is a development off of the previously canceled Falcon 5X work is expected to hopefully continue on a good trend. "The development schedule is unusually tight for a program such as this," Trappier noted. "However, there is a good level of embedded maturity in aircraft and component design and we are very confident of achieving a first flight in 2021."
