The comfort and efficiency of the cabin are replicated in the cockpit. More headroom, easier entry, and egress. More storage space. FalconSphere II electronic flight bags integrated into the console. And most important, 32% more window space, enabling greater situational awareness, both on the ramp and enroute.

The next iteration of Dassault’s Digital Flight Control System (DFCS) – which the company first introduced to business aviation a dozen years ago on the 7X – ensures better maneuverability and aircraft protection on primary and secondary flight controls. The new generation DFCS commands all flight control surfaces, including slats, flaps and the new flaperons, and each surface is multifunctional for peak performance. Falcon pilots do not need to constantly correct for small disturbances or overbanking tendencies by hand flying and re-trim. Instead, the pilot flies the flight path trajectory and the DFCS system does the work. The DFCS also integrates nose-wheel steering for safer runway handling in strong cross-winds or on wet runways.

The revolutionary FalconEye combined vision system (CVS) – the first Head-Up Display (HUD) to blend synthetic, database-driven terrain imaging and actual thermal and low-light camera images into a single view – will be standard on the 6X. Proven on the Falcon 8X, FalconEye provides an unprecedented level of situational awareness to flight crews.

FalconEye features a fourth-generation multi-sensor camera with six sensors for high-quality images in both the visible and infrared spectrums. These images are combined with synthetic vision databases that map terrain, obstacles, navigation, and airport runway data. The 30- x 40-degree field of view is one of the widest angles on any HUD. The Falcon 6X cockpit avionics include the third-generation EASy III system, powered by Honeywell’s Primus Epic platform. New features include an integrated controller pilot data link communication (CPDLC) system and an RDR 4000 IntuVue 3-D color weather radar that provides predictive lightning and hail detection, as well as 60 nm range Doppler turbulence detection. Hazardous weather and the vertical definition of thunderstorms can be seen at distances up to 320 nautical miles.
