After scrapping its large-cabin Falcon 5X model, Dassault Aviation unveiled its most spacious, advanced and versatile twinjet in business aviation – Falcon 6X. This new 5,500 nm aircraft will make its first flight in early 2021 and begin deliveries in 2022.
Falcon 6X cabin is six feet, six inches (1.98 m) high and 8 feet 6 inches (2.58 m) wide – the highest and widest cross section in a purpose built business jet – and is nearly 40 feet 8 inches (12.3 m) long.
The cabin can accommodate 16 passengers in three distinct lounge areas, affording room for multiple configurations including a large entry way/crew rest area and a spacious rear lounge.
Every element of cabin style and design has been totally rethought, the result of an extensive survey of customer tastes and inputs from Dassault Aviation’s own in-house Design Studio. Flowing uninterrupted lines enhance the feeling of space and declutter the cabin.
Significantly more natural light floods into the cabin thanks to 29 extra-large windows including a unique galley skylight – the first in business aviation – designed to provide additional brightness in an area usually devoid of natural light.
The jet will be powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada’s ‘PurePower’ PW800 engines with the range of 5,500 nm, making it to fly from London to Los Angeles non-stop. The $47 million, Dassault falcon 6x comes equipped with the industry’s most advanced digital flight control and cockpit technologies.
Eric Trappier, Chairman & CEO of Dassault Aviation said “The Falcon 6X will offer a mix of range, comfort and capability no other large cabin business jet can match while guaranteeing fully mature systems and a proven powerplant”
