Dassault Aviation unveiled the Falcon 6X, a successor to the company’s 5x business jet. The 6X, which will have more range and more cabin space than the 5X, will first fly in early 2021 and start deliveries the following year, Dassault said.
Powered by twin Pratt & Whitney Pure Power PW800 engines, the 6X sports a 5,500 nm range and top speed of Mach 0.9, according to Dassault. The 16-passenger cabin is the largest Falcon has produced and comes in three layout options. The jet cruises at up to 41,100 feet, but cabin altitude never exceeds 3,900 feet, ensuring premium comfort for travelers. A state-of-the-art air circulation system provides the cabin with totally fresh air every few minutes.
Dassault also says it’s the brightest cabin they’ve produced with no fewer than 28 side windows and a skylight above the galley. Soundproofing enables passengers to enjoy conversation at normal levels. The jet sells for about $47 million.
