  1. Dual (FAA; EASA) Approvals For Falcon 6X
    Dassault Aircraft finally receives Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for their new Falcon 6X. The simultaneous approvals were awarded on August 22nd 2023 and now permits the French airframer to commence deliveries to their international customers. The first delivery is in final works and expected to happen momentarily.
  2. "Certification of the Falcon 6X is a remarkable milestone for Dassault Aviation," said Dassault Aviation chairman and CEO Eric Trappier. "We would like to recognize the EASA and FAA certification teams for their commitment in this demanding process and our customers for their confidence. The Falcon 6X is the first brand-new business jet to comply with the latest regulations, which will enhance the safety and security of all new aircraft." The certification campaign involved three flight test aircraft that accumulated 1,500 flight hours.
  3. It has been a long-time coming for this executive jet. Dassault Falcon were originally working on a model called the 5X but that model had to be shelved because of powerplant issues by the then Safran Silvercrest engines. They canceled the 5X in October 2017 to start 'fresh' and with new powerplants...and the 6X model was born. The 6X was announced in early 2018 and rolled-out in late 2020 (virtually due to the covid-19 pandemic) with first flight taking place by March 2021. Since then the flight test articles have been flying testing and over-testing every point. The new fly-by-wire business jet is powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW812D and will cost customers around $52.75 million to acquire.
