The first customer Dassault Falcon 6X destined to get a full production interior lifted off on January 28 from France’s Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport and headed to the French airframer’s Little Rock, Arkansas aircraft completion center. 

Dassault announced the widebody 6X in 2018 and rolled out the airplane in December 2020. In March 2021, the first test 6X, S/N 1, completed its initial flight. Since then, two other 6Xs have joined the flight-test fleet.

It is expected to begin a world tour in the middle of this year. Type certification of the 6X is anticipated by year-end. Once in customer production, the 6X will boast the largest cross-section dimensions of any purpose-built business jet.
