Dassault Aviation CEO Eric Trappier told O’Brien the “key goals of the new design were comfort and efficiency. With a range of 5,500 nm, trips like Los Angeles to Moscow nonstop are now possible.” At a cruise speed of Mach 0.80, New York to Buenos Aries or to Honolulu is possible with eight passengers and a crew of three. The 6X is capable of cruising as high as 51,000 feet. At 40 feet 4 inches long, 78 inches tall and 102 inches wide, the 6X cabin is the largest of any long-range business jet, besting even that of Dassault’s Falcon 8X. The company expects to fly the 6X for the first time in early 2021.
