Dassault has announced its Falcon 6X jet has been issued the type certificate by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) as well as by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
According to Dassault, the certifications conclude a more than two-year-long test campaign during which 1,500 flight hours were logged worldwide and they are a significant step on the path to entry into service for the Falcon 6X. The first units are currently undergoing final completion.
“The certification of the Falcon 6X is a remarkable milestone for Dassault Aviation. We would like to recognise the EASA and FAA certification teams for their commitment in this demanding process and our customers for their confidence. The Falcon 6X is the first brand new business jet to comply with the latest regulations, which will enhance the safety and security of all new aircraft,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation.
“The 5,500 nm / 10,200 km Falcon 6X combines the best qualities of Dassault Aviation’s world-leading business and fighter aircraft expertise to create the longest-range jet in its class with unparalleled passenger comfort and maximum mission flexibility”.
