New ‘pa­per­less’ biz­jet from Das­sault

Pilot - - PILOT NOTES -

Das­sault is work­ing on a ‘clean-sheet’ busi­ness jet de­sign, com­pany Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Eric Trap­pier an­nounced at Oc­to­ber’s National Busi­ness Avi­a­tion As­so­ci­a­tion Con­ven­tion & Ex­hi­bi­tion in Las Ve­gas. Well, clean sheet is not quite the right ex­pres­sion, he ex­plained, as de­sign work will be largely pa­per­less thanks to a new soft­ware sys­tem called 3D Ex­pe­ri­ence that will take the air­craft from con­cept to de­liv­ery. “We will be a truly dig­i­tal en­ter­prise,” Trap­pier said. “The soft­ware will al­low sim­u­la­tions at ev­ery stage of de­vel­op­ment al­low­ing all in­volved to thor­oughly test prod­ucts and sys­tems be­fore they are ac­tu­ally pro­duced.”
