  1. Update On The Falcon 6X By Dassault Falcon
    French airframer Dassault Falcon updated the public on the latest developments with their in-development Falcon 6X. The first aircraft is in the initial stages of assembly where the different sections of the fuselage are being worked on and more-or-less completed. Dassault said they expected assembly to be done later this month in an update at the NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas, Nevada. The wing, currently being assembled in nearby Martignas, is due to be joined to the fuselage at Dassault’s Bordeaux-Mérignac facility early next year.
  2. "Everything has been proceeding according to plan. The design was frozen earlier this year and the manufacturing process is well underway," said Eric Trappier, Chairman & CEO of Dassault Aviation. "Dassault Aviation and our global partners have the collaborative digital tools in place to continue to meet the benchmarks that were established when the program was announced." The aircraft is progressing smoothly along the developmental phases and is squarely on track for first flight in 2021 and deliveries to customers in 2022. The Falcon 6X’s maximum range of 5,500 nm (10,186 km) is longer than that of any other jet in its category. It can fly directly from Los Angeles to London, São Paulo to Chicago or Paris to Beijing at Mach 0.85. By the first half of 2020 the first 6X test bed should be looking more and more closer to reality.
