French plane maker, Dassault Aviation launched a new luxury jet Falcon 6x after scrapping its large-cabin Falcon 5X model, citing three-year delay in Safran’s Silvercrest engine. The new Falcon 6x twinjet luxury aircraft will make its first flight in early 2021 and begin deliveries in 2022.
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 will offer the largest, quietest and most comfortable cabin of any aircraft in its class and more cabin volume than any other Falcon ever designed. It 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”
