Dassault sets roll-out date for Falcon 6X
Dassault Aviation has confirmed its new jet, the Falcon 6X, will be rolled out on 8 December 2020. The first and second prototypes are already complete, with a third one nearing completion. The third example will be the first one with a full cabin to be able to test the related functionality.
The Falcon 6X was launched in February 2018 to replace the cancelled Falcon 5X. It was cancelled due to continuing problems with its SNECMA Silvercrest engines, which had caused multiple years of delay.
The 6X will therefore feature the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW812D, a variant of the PW814GA and PW815GA as featured on the Gulfstream G500 and G600.
