Dassault Aviation to Promote Falcon 6X, 8X and 900LX at RUBAE 2018

Dassault Aviation will showcase its 6,450 nm/11,945 km Falcon 8X ultra-long range trijet and the latest version of its Falcon 900LX large-cabin long range Falcon business jet at this year’s edition of the Russian Business Aviation Exhibit (RUBAE), which opens on 12 September at the Vnukovo 3 business aviation complex.

Dassault will also be leveraging RUBAE 2018 to highlight its new Falcon 6X ultra widebody twin, due to enter service in 2022. The 5,500 nm/10,186 km 6X will feature a cabin six feet, six inches (1.98 m) high and 8 feet 6 inches (2.58 m) wide. The aircraft will be able to link Moscow directly to New York or Singapore at Mach .85.

“The Russian business aviation market remains active and Falcon sales have been solid, especially for three-engine models like the popular Falcon 7X and Falcon 900LX and the new Falcon 8X, which will set a new benchmark in the ultra-long range segment,” said Gilles Gautier, Vice President, Falcon Sales for Dassault Aviation. “Equipped with innovative options, notably our revolutionary FalconEye combined enhanced/synthetic vision system and our new FalconConnect high speed connectivity option recently introduced in partnership with Honeywell -- the 8X is expected to sell as well in the region as the Falcon 7X. We also expect strong demand for our new Falcon 6X, which will be the most modern, spacious and versatile twin in its class and offer the most advanced digital flight control system on the market. Our current Falcon 2000 twins, with their unparalleled short field capability, are already proving popular with Russian operators.”

To ensure it can continue delivering top-notch support to Russian operators, Dassault has significantly reinforced and expanded its regional service network in recent years. The company recently set up a new stock of spare parts at Vnukovo 3, near the Dassault Falcon Services satellite service center, to further facilitate the distribution of spares within Russia and the CIS.

Russian customers can also count on Falcon Response, Dassault’s comprehensive suite of AOG services. In the short time since its introduction, a number of operators from the region have already benefited from the dedicated Falcon 900 missions made available by Falcon Response to handle AOG situations and if necessary provide alternative lift.
