Dassault revealed the $45 million Falcon 5X in late 2013. The first aircraft will fly this year and certification is likely in 2017.
Lots of products boast of being the biggest and most advanced, but Dassault’s new large-cabin 5X twinjet really delivers on those claims.

““CEOs go to their vacation homes just after companies report favorable news, and CEOs return to headquarters right before subsequent news is released.
