  1. Dassault Underscores Large-Cabin; Long-Range At NBAA-BACE
    With the large-cabin and long-range segment of the industry heating up between competitors, Gulfstream, Bombardier and Dassault, the latter is underscoring its efforts in the segment with the Falcon 6X, 8X and 10X at this year's NBAA-BACE. The show will kick off next week, the 12th of October in Las Vegas, Nevada (United States) and the company will have cabin mock-ups of the in-test Falcon 6X, the newly announced in-development new future flagship Falcon 10X as well as a full 8X aircraft to round out its large cabin offering at the show.
  2. The Falcon 8X is the current Dassault Falcon flagship and the example that will be at the show is one with a restyled interior and cabin features. The 8X arrives in Las Vegas with a restyled, reimagined cabin intended to further improve comfort, connectivity and productivity. New LED lighting is more soothing to the eyes and infinitely adaptable, with innovative sunrise/sunset functions among its numerous settings. There are some new cabin management features too in the updated interior. As for the Falcon 10X, the company will try to leverage the spacious cabin and technology expected to be fielded with the jet. The 10X cabin has a height of 6-feet, 8-inches and width of 9-feet, 1-inch, which is larger than some regional jets. The 6X is closer to becoming reality with customer deliveries as that new model is anticipated to be certified in 2022. The 5,500 nautical mile jet will soon have another test article with an outfitted production interior. A fourth aircraft--the second with a full interior--is expected to fly before year end. This unit will embark on a global tour intended to rigorously evaluate cabin systems and ensure they are fully mature on market entry.
