A First Look at Dassault’s Falcon 10X Ultra-Long-Range Business Jet
Dassault Aviation has gone public with plans for its latest Falcon business jet. In a live presentation from its hangar at Paris Le Bourget Airport, the French company used virtual reality to unveil what will be the ultra-long-range Falcon 10X.
The largest Falcon built to date will challenge intercontinental rivals like the Bombardier Global 7500 and the Gulfstream G700 with a range of 7,500 nm when it enters service in 2025. All three are priced at around 75 million dollars.
Dassault CEO Éric Trappier had the honor of officially naming the new Falcon, which has been secretly in development under the code name NX. He was the first to confirm some of the main features of the new design, including Dassault’s first-ever use of Rolls-Royce engines. And he hinted that there could be more to come.
