  1. First Dassault Falcon 6X First Flight
    The first flight of the first Dassault Falcon 6X test article has taken place. It comes after the roll out of the first aircraft back in early December 2020. Today, Bruno Ferry and Fabrice Vallette were the test pilots in the cockpit of S/N 1 for the landmark flight. "Today’s flight is another milestone in Dassault history, made all the more satisfying by the remarkable efforts of the entire Dassault organization and its partners over the challenging past year," said Dassault Aviation Chairman/CEO Eric Trappier. "We dedicate today’s achievement to Olivier Dassault, who died tragically on Sunday," continued Trappier. "Olivier was a Falcon pilot who perfectly embodied his family’s boundless passion for aviation."
  2. The aircraft was aloft for about two hours and thirty minutes before returning to Dassault Mérignac plant. During the flight the 6X climbed to 40,000 feet and made Mach 0.80. Serial number 01's next flight will combine test activities with a hop to Istres, near Marseilles, where the Dassault flight test center is located and the bulk of the testing program will take place. Falcon 6X s/n 02 and 03 are scheduled to take to the air in the coming months as they are in the latter stages of production. The Falcon 6X is on course for certification and entry into service (EIS) in 2022.
