Dassault pilots and engineers have been “flying” a Falcon 7X simulator since December at the French company’s Saint-Cloud headquarters near Paris. The Falcon simulation testbed (FST) has been built to develop the control laws of the new trijet’s fly-by-wire (FBW) system. Next year it will be fitted with all of the 7X’s control-related systems, Dassault technical managers told AIN.

Dassault’s new EASy flight deck should enter customer service this spring on a Falcon 900EX. Early last month AIN visited the airframer’s facility in Bordeaux Mérignac, France, to see how the ongoing flight tests have refined the avionics suite. Philippe Deleume, Dassault’s chief test pilot for civil aircraft, also explained how extensive engineer-pilot interaction have improved man-machine interface.
