Description: Dassault-Aviation's Falcon is a family of business jets powered by two or three engines introduced in 1965 with more than 1,800 airplanes ordered from customers in 65 countries. The Falcon family has logged more than 11 million flying hours since its first customer delivery in the 1960s. From the twinjet Falcon 20 to the trijet Falcon 7X featuring intercontinental range, Falcon has taken profit from advanced technologies coming from both military and commercial range. Originally Falcon was known as the Mystere and inherited Dassault's expertise on military aircraft programs.
The first commercial model available was twinjet Falcon 20 (Mystere 20) followed by Falcon 200 which was also powered by two engines. In 1979, Dassault delivered the first long range, trijet Falcon 50 business jet. The Falcon 50EX is currently the last Falcon 50 model in production and is capable of traveling slightly more than 3,000 nautical miles (nm). Trijet Falcon 900 features ranges in excess of 4,000 nm (7,000+ km). In 1995, Dassault introduced Falcon 2000 twinjet aircraft for customers needing VIP transport for ranges no greater than 4,000 nautical miles. By 2006, Falcon 7X with an impressive range of 5,700 nm (10,500 km) will complete Falcon portfolio.
The Dassault Falcon 6X is a twin-engine, versatile, long-range business jet derived from the Falcon 5X aerodynamics and featuring a spacious cabin with advanced avionics launched in February 2018. The Falcon 6X will be powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada Pure Power PW800 turboran engines (PW812D model) providing a maximum range of 5,500 nautical miles (10,000+ kilometers) carrying up to 16 passengers. One key element is the wing design which has been optimized to be ultra-efficient and utilizes flaperon control surfaces. The jet also offers leading noise suppression systems from the Falcon 8X. Besides, the aircraft will be fitted with the most advanced digital flight control and cockpit technologies. Dassault Aviation expects the Falcon 6X to conduct its first flight in 2021 with customer deliveries planned for 2022.
