PARIS -- Dassault Aviation has unveiled an all-new, clean-sheet Falcon business jet, dubbed the Falcon 10X. Featuring a range of 7,500 nautical miles, the Falcon 10X will fly nonstop from New York to Shanghai, Los Angeles to Sydney, Hong Kong to New York, or Paris to Santiago. The aircraft's top speed is Mach 0.925. The Falcon 10X is scheduled to enter service at the end of 2025.

"Today, we are introducing a new benchmark in business aviation," said Dassault Chairman and CEO Eric Trappier. "The Falcon 10X will offer an unrivaled passenger experience over both short- and long-duration flights, along with breakthrough safety features from Dassault's frontline fighter technology. We have optimized every aspect of the aircraft with the passenger in mind and established a new level of capability for ultra-long-range aircraft."

The cabin of the Falcon 10X is 2.03 meters (6.xx feet) high and 2,77 meters (9.xx feet) wide. Cabin volume is 2,780 cubic feet. The cabin is designed to feature a high level of modularity, with a selection of multiple interior configurations. The 10X can accommodate four cabin zones of equal length, but customers can also configure their cabin to create a customized interior. Passengers on the 10X will experience a 3,000-foot cabin pressure altitude while flying at 41,000 feet. A new filtration system will provide 100 percent pure air.

"The 10X will be more than just another big step forward in business aviation. It will be absolutely the best business jet available in the ultra-long-range category, and will remain so for a long time," said Trappier.

The Falcon 10X will feature an entirely new fuselage. A total of 38 large windows will line the fuselage. The aircraft's wing will be made of carbon fiber composites for maximum strength, reduced weight, and minimum drag. The very-high aspect ratio wing will be equipped with retractable high-lift devices intended to provide superior maneuverability at low approach speeds.

The twin-engine 10X will be powered by Rolls Royce Pearl 10X turbofan engine, which is currently in development. The Pearl 10X is the latest, largest, and most powerful member of Rolls' Pearl series, and delivers more than 18,000 lbst.

The flight deck of the Falcon 10X will have touch screens throughout the cockpit. The aircraft will be equipped with a new Digital Flight Control System, derived from Dassault's latest military technology, and will include a new single-button recovery mode.

A single smart throttle will serve as the primary power control, connecting both engines to the Digital Flight Control System, which will automatically manage the power of each engine as needed in different flight scenarios.

The Falcon 10X will also be equipped with Dassault's FalconEye combined vision system as well as dual HUDs that are able to serve as primary flight displays. Dassault said that the 10X will be capable of operating in essentially zero ceiling/visibility conditions.

"We have set the bar for our new Falcon incredibly high," said Trappier. "But I can confidently say that we have put this aircraft at the top of the market."
