Dassault Falcon 5X Flies with 'Preliminary' Engines
Preliminary flight-test campaign will last only a few weeks to help streamline the development process; full-fledges testing will start next year.
To help streamline the development process, Dassault has started a limited flight-test campaign of its Falcon 5X using a "preliminary version" of the twinjet's Safran Silvercrest engines. A full-fledged flight-test campaign with “certifiable engines meeting Dassault’s specifications” is scheduled to begin next year. (Photo: Dassault Falcon)
