  1. Dassault Falcon 8X Debut At 2016 ABACE
    French manufacturer Dassault Falcon is presently at the Asian Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (ABACE) and they have a fully outfitted Dassault Falcon 8X there on debut. This 8X has a full and finished interior and is the third aircraft in the testing program. It is presently on a four week 55,000 nm (101,860 km) global proving campaign designed to simulate the most extreme real world conditions customers might expect to face during their aircraft’s operational life. The campaign will take the aircraft through 65 different missions, from short hops to ultra-long range flights. It will focus particular attention on the performance of cabin equipment and functionalities and high speed communication systems during long, intercontinental flights.
  2. FAA and EASA certification is expected by midyear and entry into service in the second half of 2016. As the flight testing and certification campaign nears completion, production and support activities are moving into high gear. Falcon 8X s/n 21 recently entered final assembly in Bordeaux-Merignac and six airplanes are now in completion in Little Rock. Dassault Falcon Jet recently completed work on a new hangar in Little Rock to handle 8X completions and broke ground on a new six-bay hangar at Bordeaux-Merignac to provide additional maintenance and repair resources for the 8X and 7X models. The ABACE is currently taking place at the Hongqiao Airport in Shanghai. The show started yesterday and will run through to the 14th of April.
