Spotlight on the Dassault Falcon 6X Cabin

The French manufacturer has built a twinjet that competes directly with the Gulfstream G500 and Bombardier Global 5500.

Dassault’s “extra widebody” Falcon 6X, scheduled to enter service in mid-2023, is now in its final stage of flight trials. The French manufacturer claims that the $57 million aircraft has the tallest and widest cabin of any purpose-built business jet while offering a range of 5,500 nautical miles and a maximum speed of Mach 0.90. The airplane is designed to stay aloft for up to 12 hours, and the range enables city pairs that include Los Angeles to London, Sao Paulo to Chicago, and Paris to Beijing. That puts the 6X in direct competition with the Gulfstream G500 and the Bombardier Global 5500.

It’s comfortable, roomy, fast, and loaded with cutting-edge technologies.

Dassault has equipped the 6X with technological advancements that make it efficient and pleasant to fly for the pilot and passenger, but the airy cabin is what will likely attract most customers. It has 1,843 cubic feet of volume and 30 windows, plus a skylight over the entryway. This twinjet is the fourth airframe built, and it recently completed a round-the-world demonstration tour, showcasing the aircraft’s maturity and reliability. The tour encompassed 50 flights over five continents and logged 150 hours, flying up to five times per day. As certification continues, the model has already entered production in Mérignac, France, and completions in Little Rock, Arkansas.
