The Falcon X10 jet is an ultra-long-range business jet that promises to revolutionize the private aviation industry with its advanced technology and exceptional performance.

Final assembly will take place during 2023 at the airframer’s site in Merignac, near Bordeaux, ahead of a first flight scheduled in 2024.

According to Dassault Aviation the production of Falcon 10X primary parts has been at full speed for many months. Fuselage structures will soon be coming together. Engineers are running test benches for electrical, hydraulic, flight control and other systems, including multi-system benches with all aircraft computers working together. This will achieve a high level of maturity before first flight. In Bordeaux-Mérignac, teams are gearing up to receive large structures in the final assembly hall. With a range of 7,500 nautical miles, the Falcon X10 is capable of flying non-stop from New York to Shanghai or Sydney to Los Angeles.

The aircraft can accommodate up to 16 passengers and has a maximum speed of Mach 0.925, making it one of the fastest and most efficient jets in its class.

The Falcon X10 is equipped with state-of-the-art avionics and a revolutionary new cockpit design that provides pilots with enhanced situational awareness and unprecedented control. The aircraft also features a spacious cabin with customizable interiors, including private bedrooms, showers, and conference rooms, offering a luxurious travel experience.
