PARIS -- Dassault Aviation has flown its second Falcon 6X flight test aircraft. The aircraft made a two-hour flight on April 30, climbing to Flight Level 400 and accelerating to a cruise speed of Mach 0.85.

"We are very pleased with the progress of the Falcon 6X test program and remain confident of meeting its target 2022 certification date," said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. "We now have two aircraft in the air. Each is performing as expected and showing a high level of systems maturity for this phase of the program."

Trappier continued, "Several of our test pilots have flown the Falcon 6X. All are extremely satisfied with its performance and handling characteristics."

Plans call for a third Falcon 6X, equipped with a finished interior, to enter the test program by this summer. This aircraft will be used to test cabin systems and amenities, galley equipment, flight entertainment systems, and options including high-speed Ka-band Internet capability.

The fourth Falcon 6X will be the first production aircraft, and is to be completed to a typical customer configuration and embark on a global demonstration tour.
