Dassault Aviation said it has joined the main centre fuselage subassemblies of the Falcon 5X, a key milestone in the production program for this innovative new large cabin twinjet.
The 5,200 nm Falcon 5X was unveiled at the National Business Aviation Association Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada last October and performed its first virtual flight on the simulator last November. It will complete assembly and begin ground tests this summer.
The aircraft will feature the largest cabin cross section and the most advanced flight controls in the industry. First flight is expected in the first half of 2015 and entry into service mid 2017.
