More spacious, more stylish, more comfortable and more accommodating is what the newly unveiled Falcon 10X have in offer. French jet manufacturer Dassault Aviation showed off to the world its new ultra-long-range business jet in Paris on May 6, expected to redefine business travel.
The jet will have a cabin size that measures 6.6 ft in height, 9.1 ft in width, and total area of 3,300 sq ft. It will be split between a sitting lounge, and a master suite with an en-suite shower. There will be 38 windows allowing ample natural light, with four big windows alone in the private living space. What’s more, owners can also customize the interiors to suit their taste, including being able to split the area into four lounges.
The air is purified and refreshed – a filtration system that is found in hospital ICUs. Comfort is of key focus in the new jet, with air pressure maintained at comfort levels even at a height of 50,000 ft.
The aircraft will use a carbon-fibre material for its wings, replacing metal – a swap that has already been practiced on the company’s Rafale fighter jets. Another sustainable replacement is its twin-engine design – the jet will be powered by twin Rolls-Royce Pearl 10X engines. This will generate enough thrust to 8,630 miles on a single load of fuel. That means, it can fly from New York to Hong Kong, or Los Angeles to Sydney or Paris to North-west Australia in record time.
In the flight deck, the jet will have a next-generation Digital Flight Control System. This means that the computer will be able to monitor the engine as well as control the engine. This will come handy if the flight experiences rough weather conditions or any other emergency. The jet will also use FalconEye combined vision system that helps provide enhanced vision during visibility issues. Furthermore, using a smart touch feature, the pilots can recline their seats into flatbeds when they need to catch some rest while they take turns to sleep.
