Dassault Falcon 6X


Business Jet Aircraft


France | 2022



"The Dassault Falcon 6X bizjet is set to succeed the now-abandoned Falcon 5X product for the company."

Mounting issues with the proposed Silvercrest engines set to power the Falcon 5X business jet program (detailed elsewhere on this site) led to its ultimate cancellation back in October of 2017. Two months later, the Falcon 6X was announced to succeed the once-promising Dassault design though, this time, the product is set to feature proven turbofan engines from Pratt & Whitney Canada. Dassault unveiled their follow-on Falcon 6X bizjet on February 28th, 2018.

The Falcon 6X retains much of the form and function of what was to make the Falcon 5X a commercial success. Its design form sets the engines outboard on short mountings found at the rear fuselage section. The rear placement of the engines makes for a quieter cabin. The engines are lighter but larger and the fuselage is stretched some 20- inches (and widened as well) to accommodate this change for better balance. The result is a larger cabin space for the passengers (seating eight) as well as more internal fuel storage for increased operational ranges. The aircraft is estimated to have a 5,500 nautical mile operating range and will be powered by 2 x Pratt & Whitney Canada PW812D series turbofan engines supplying up to 14,000lb of thrust each.

Beyond this the aircraft has a largely conventional business jet appearance with the side-by-side seating cockpit fitted aft of a short, downward-sloped nosecone. the wing mainplanes are low-mounted and swept-back while featuring fuel-saving with winglets at their tips. The tail unit will comprise a single vertical plane with mid-mounted horizontal planes. A typical tricycle landing gear arrangement will be used for ground running. The cockpit avionics will be the EASy Flight Deck system (Honeywell Primus Epic).

Dimensions include a wingspan of 85 feet, a length of 84.2 feet and a height of 24.5 feet.

The Falcon 6X is expected to enter service sometime in 2021-2020 with flight-testing beginning in the early part of 2021. Its primary market competitors will be the Gulfstream G500 and G600 aircraft - which will enjoy a considerable head-start in formulating a customer list.

While Dassault Aviation SA, founded in 1929, has an interest in military players worldwide, it - like other defense product providers - also shares an interest in commercial market products to help balance revenue. The company currently (2018) employs nearly 12,000 personnel globally and has its hand in civilian, military and space markets.
