Earlier this week, it was revealed by Dassault Aviation that the Falcon 6X has received certification from both EASA and the FAA.
The EASA side of the equation clears the aircraft to operate in Europe, with the FAA being in the United States.
This concludes a test campaign that has lasted over two years, and has consisted of 1,500 test hours being logged worldwide.
Falcon 6X EASA & FAA Certification: “Remarkable Milestone for Dassault”…
Commenting on this milestone of the Falcon 6X being certified by EASA & the FAA was Eric Trappier, the CEO & Chairman of Dassault Aviation:
“The certification of the Falcon 6X is a remarkable milestone for Dassault Aviation.”
“We would like to recognize 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,”
“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”.
This marks the next step in aircraft development and sales for the 6X, as they can now begin to start delivering units of the type previously ordered by operators and private customers.
Looking ahead, it will be interesting to see how the 6X performs in the business market on a more commercial basis, as this will provide more space and versatility in the market.
