DASSAULT FALCON 5X PROGRAM UPDATE

Jet Asia Pacific - - Jet News -

In mid-december, Dassault Aviation initiated the termination process of the Silvercrest contract which led to the end of the Falcon 5X program and announced the launch of a new Falcon program with an entry into service in 2022.

Safran met recurrent technical issues during the program development. Equipped with a preliminary version of the engine, not compliant with the specifications, the Falcon 5X performed its maiden flight, on July 5, 2017, and started a preliminary flight test campaign, limited by engines capacity. The Falcon 5X flight behaviour met all the expectations.

Considering the magnitude of the risks involved both on the technical and schedule aspects of the Silvercrest program, Dassault Aviation initiated the termination process of the Silvercrest contract which led to the end of the Falcon 5X program and now plan to start negotiations with Safran.
