Dassault Falcon introduced its Falcon 5X just one day ago, and already it is announcing partners in the aircraft’s production. At NBAA 2013 the company announced that it has selected Pratt & Whitney’s APS500[D] auxiliary power unit to provide the aircraft with electrical power for main engine starting and cabin air-conditioning on the ground. Pratt & Whitney Aeropower is partnering with Safran Microturbo to customize the APU for the 5X.

This will be the first time that these two companies have partnered to provide an installation kit (including the air inlet and exhaust system with noise attenuation). The integrated solution should enhance performance of the APU, ergo, the 5X.
