The Dassault Falcon 10X is the latest entry (as of July 2021) by the storied French concern in the business jet (bizjet) market. The type is billed as an "ultra-long-range" twin-engine performer with wide-body classification and can serve in typical roles such as VIP and general passenger transport while also having the flexibility to undertake military-minded sorties such as maritime patrol (it is being actively marketed to the French Air Force in this role).

The series was formally debuted by Dassault in May of 2021.

Largely conventional and functional, the Falcon 10X still exudes all-modern technologies, luxuries, and capabilities. The cockpit seats two in a side-by-side arrangement, with large, full-color screens dominating the instrument panel and redundant digital flight control (F-16-style side-stick controlling) schemes featured at each seat (the seats straddle the shared center console). Four mission/system screens are in play as well as Head-Up Displays (HUDs) for each crewman. The cockpit sits at its usual place behind a sharp-yet-rounded, short nosecone assembly offering good views. The fuselage is dotted with rounded windows for viewing / natural lighting and emergency exits are fitted at midships.

Internally, the aircraft can be arranged to suit customer needs and offers the luxury expected of this class of flyer including swiveling chairs, fold-out tables, widescreen televisions, a galley, and other amenities. The oversized cabin can be set up to incorporate different seating structures as well as beds for longer-range flights.

The mainplanes are monoplane in design featuring sweepback for aerodynamic efficiency. The members are low-mounted along the sides of the fuselage (near midships) and capped by winglets. The engines are held outboard and mounted rear of the passenger cabin to control noise output for the occupants. The tail unit incorporates a T-style arrangement, seating the horizontal planes along the upper most section of the single vertical tail plane. For ground running, a conventional, retractable wheeled undercarriage is utilized.

Power is from 2 x Rolls-Royce Pearl 10X non-afterburning turbofan engines outputting 18,000lb of thrust each. Range is one of the promoted traits of this new Dassault offering as the platform can reach from Los Angeles to Beijing, Sydney, Tel Aviv, and even Moscow on internal fuel. Its design and noise levels are such that the aircraft can operate at business aviation and general airports.

Performance specs include an all-out range of 13,900 kilometers, a mach speed of 0.925 and an operating altitude of 15,545 meters. Dimensions include a running length of 33.4 meters, a wingspan of 33.6 meters, and an overall height of 8.4 meters. Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) is 52,163 kilograms.
