Inside The $47 Million Dassault Falcon 6X Private Jet

0:00 – Intro
The Dassault Falcon 6X is the successor to the 5X program, which was scrubbed following problems with the Safran Silvercrest engine chosen to power the new aircraft. The 6X is largely based on the aerodynamics and characteristics of the Falcon 5X, but it’s optimized for the new engine, offering a longer range and a bigger cabin. Here is everything you need to know about the Dassault Falcon 6X.

0:34 – Interior
According to Dassault, the 6X has the tallest and widest cabin in any purpose-built business jet. This gives passengers more space to sit or stand.
Up to 16 passengers can be accommodated within the cabin, with individual seating in three different lounge areas.
Cabin height in the 6X comes in at 6 feet 6 inches, or 1.98 meters. This ensures that almost every person that steps onboard can comfortably stand up. The cabin being 102 inches or 2.6 meters wide also provides passengers with more elbow room, aisle space and more comfortable divans.
The maximum cabin altitude of just 3,900 feet or 1,200 meters and the air filtration system ensure that passengers will feel refreshed at the end of a long flight. The entire volume of cabin air can be refreshed in just under three minutes.
The 6X has 30 large windows throughout the cabin. Incredibly, Dassault has managed to integrate a skylight into the cabin, the first ever in a business aircraft, which drenches the entrance and galley areas in natural light.
As with all modern business aircraft, the cabin features the latest in connectivity, in this case via a Ka-band network. Passengers can control all the cabin functions via a mobile app or cabin interface, including lighting, volume level, and entertainment options. Smart-control mood lighting varies color patterns in accordance with the type of activity, time of day, and season.

3:34 – Cockpit
Described by Dassault as “the pilot’s new office”, the Falcon 6X has the latest version of Dassault’s award-winning avionics suite, the EASy III, based on Honeywell’s Primus Epic suite. For example, pilots will have exceptional visibility and 30% more window area thanks to the four large windows in the cockpit. Glare shields are shaped in such a way to give pilots an expanded field of view and, according to Dassault, increased legroom and headroom make the 6X the aircraft with the most spacious cockpit in its class.
As you would expect, the 6X features the award-winning FalconEye Combined Vision System. This system provides unprecedented situational awareness for flight crews, Dassault says. The CVS blends synthetic terrain images with those from infrared and low-light cameras into a single view on the head-up display.
Furthermore, the aircraft is fitted with the FalconSphere II, an integrated Electronic Flight Bag solution that reduces the time and effort of preparing for missions.
Dassault’s next-generation digital flight-control system provides better maneuverability and protection on the primary and secondary flight controls. The DFCS commands all flight control surfaces, including slats and flaps.
The system also integrates nose-wheel steering for safer runway handling in strong crosswinds or on wet runways.
Digital flight controls have been present on Dassault business aircraft for many years, but Dassault says the Falcon 6X’s system represents the next generation of DFCS refinement, further simplifying the pilot’s workload for optimized, safer performance.
Flight envelope protection avoids exceeding structural speed limits or stalls, enabling pilots to achieve maximum performance quickly and decisively without exceeding the limit.

6:21 – Engine and Performance
The Falcon 6X is powered by two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney Canada PW812D engines. This makes the 6X capable of taking off in just 5,480 feet or 1,670 meters, and landing in a minimum distance of 2,480 feet or 760 meters, with a maximum certified altitude of 51,000 feet or 15,500 meters.
When optimized for the cruise at Mach 0.80 with 8 passengers and 3 crew, the 6X can fly 5,500 nautical miles or 10,200 kilometers without needing to refuel, and when optimized for speed the plane can fly at 516 knots or Mach 0.90. The approach speed of the 6X is 109 knots, around 10 knots slower than most comparable jets with similar performance figures.

8:25 – Charter, Purchase and Maintenance Cost
The estimated cost to charter a Dassault Falcon 6X is upwards of $10,000 per flight hour. Naturally, prices will vary depending on availability, fuel prices, ground fees and more. The current list price for a brand new Falcon 6X is $47 million.
