Unveiled at Dassault’s Bordeaux-Merignac facility before an audience of customers, operators, industrial partners and representatives of certification authorities, the Falcon 8X was rolled out for the first time. Ground tests, including flight control system testing, vibration tests and fuel system testing, concluded in November. The first engine run up took place in early December and the aircraft is on track for a maiden flight in the first quarter of 2015.
Additionally, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our wonderful clients and patrons for a successful 2014. In reflecting on the past year, it’s clear that without you, the year would not be worth celebrating. So, from each and every one of us at CFS Jets, thank you, and from our family to yours, we hope you had an absolutely wonderful holiday season, and will have a prosperous 2015!
