In addition to our exclusive interview, our informative follow up Q+A with Don Pointer, Sr. Director, Marketing & Communications for Dassault Falcon Jet will leave you dreaming about owning your own Falcon Jet!
1. Highlight a few features from the new Falcon 10X that aircraft owners will be eager to enjoy?
Dassault addressed every small detail with our Falcon 10X. Falcons are known to have the brightest cabin in the sky. But, the 10X takes it so much further: 38 windows—the largest in the Falcon family—have been designed to provide ideal light distribution throughout the cabin with no dark spots. There’s more total window area on the Falcon 10X than its closest competitors.
2. How will the Falcon 6X and the Falcon 10X bring personal travel to the next level of luxury?
It’s about the cabin space—purposefully conceptualized and designed to create a seamless flying experience from your home and office to your Falcon.
3. With a military pedigree, Dassault has the distinct advantage of having cutting edge technology and engineering behind its designs. What innovations have come from the “military side” that may surprise aviation enthusiasts?
Dassault is in a unique position. We design and manufacture fighter jets and Falcon business jets. The same engineers and designers that build our Mach 2 Rafale fighter are the same that work on the Falcon programs. Our advanced military technologies have many practical applications in our Falcon business jets. This is how we stay ahead of our competitors and offer customers the most technologically advanced and most capable business jets in the world. For example, our company developed digital flight control system in our Falcons shares the same DNA as the digital flight control system in our Rafale fighter jets.
4. Personalization is a key factor for owners who want to be able to make their private jet unique and custom. How will the new Falcon models accommodate the various needs of owners today?
Our philosophy with our new Falcon 10X was to recreate your home or office experience inside the 10X. What separates this airplane from others is the sheer size of the cabin. It will simply be the biggest and most comfortable on the market and will offer greater flexibility with a wide selection of interior configurations. Customers will have the ability to create completely customized interiors—different lengths of the four interior zones will create an interior space to each individual’s liking. Expanded dining sections? A dedicated entertainment section? Private stateroom with a queen sized bed? All possible with our Falcon 10X.
5. You have been involved in the industry for over 3 decades. What is your favorite aspect of aviation?
The people—everyone involved in this industry is unique, engaging and passionate. It makes for a great creative environment and long lasting relationships.
6. How did the three engine configuration originally come to fruition? What do consumers love about it? What should they know about the new Falcon 10X and its 2 engine configuration?
Dassault has collaborated with Rolls Royce for the Falcon 10X program which will feature Pearl 10X engines. The Pearl 10X will combine the Advance2 engine core—the most efficient core in business aviation—with a high performance low pressure system to produce 18,000lbs of thrust. The engine will have the ability to run on 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel for a greener flight.
7. How is the Dassault family of aircraft keeping up with the ever evolving business trends and travel needs of entrepreneurs, CEO’s and UHNW individuals?
Dassault has been at the forefront of developing groundbreaking technologies for business aviation and elevating the customer experience for decades. Our newest Falcons, the 6X and the 10X, elevate both—combining the latest in technology with an unrivaled cabin flexibility and experience.
8. Reveal a Falcon Fun Fact we need to know!
Every (original) Falcon 10 coming from the factory performed an in-flight barrel roll as part of the test flight.
9. Our tag line is Experience Something Extraordinary®. How does that resonate with the Dassault Falcon Jet philosophy?
Our founder, Marcel Dassault, once said “For a plane to fly well, it must be beautiful.” That quote today still guides us.
