  1. Dassault Falcon 10X Enters Into Production Phase
    In an update on the progress of the future flagship of the Dassault Falcon fleet, the airframer announced that the Falcon 10X has now entered the production phase. Parts manufacturing has been ongoing and the airframer is preparing for initial sub-assemblies production. "All the elements for another great Falcon are literally coming together in our various production facilities," remarked Dassault Aviation Chairman and CEO Eric Trappier. "This new aircraft, the largest purpose-built business jet on the market, will embody the latest technology and set a new benchmark for passenger experience."

  2. Development of the aircraft's Rolls-Royce Pearl 10X is progressing well, too. Tests to date have demonstrated the reliability of the engine and shown it will fully meet its performance requirements. To date, Rolls-Royce has logged over 1,000 test hours on the 18,000 pound-plus thrust engine, including runs on 100 percent sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Rolls-Royce recently broke ground on a new production support facility adjacent to the aircraft final assembly line in Bordeaux-Mérignac. The flight test campaign for the Pearl 10X will take place on a Rolls-Royce flying test bed, scheduled to begin in 2023.
  3. Dassault is also utilizing a new approach to ground testing with the development of the Falcon 10X. Two multi-system test benches at Dassault's Istres, France, flight test center will be utilized for the extensive ground test campaign. The benches are nearly identical and each is equipped with a full flight deck and subsystems computer suites representative of those used on the actual aircraft. A third test bench, at Dassault Aviation headquarters in Saint-Cloud, outside Paris, replicates the flight deck and flight control system. This work allows the Falcon teams to demonstrate the maturity of all systems well before the aircraft even takes to the air and additionally see potential issues before they can manifest in the air.
