IAI Selected by Dassault Aviation to Produce the Wing Movable Surfaces for the New Falcon 10X Business Jet
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has been selected by Dassault Aviation to design and produce the all-composite wing movable surfaces for the new, long-range Falcon 10X business jet. The Falcon 10X wing movable surfaces programme joins IAI’s other aerostructures programmes for other leading aircraft manufacturers.
Drawing on its in-house advanced design engineering capabilities, IAI is progressing with the design phase of the wing movable surfaces. In parallel, IAI will set up the wing movable surfaces production assembly line in its composites aerostructures facility. In order to meet the high demand for the new aircraft, IAI will support Dassault Aviation’s entry-into-service target for the Falcon 10X for 2025, alongside the production ramp up.
IAI EVP and General Manager of the Aviation Group, Shmuel Kuzi said, “I would like to thank Dassault Aviation for selecting IAI for the Falcon 10X wing movable surfaces program. This is a recognition of IAI’s capabilities and expertise in composite aerostructures by one of the leading manufacturers of military and commercial jets in the world. We are eager to move forward on this partnership and play an important role in Dassault Aviation’s new business jet.”
IAI’s Aviation Group unites all activity in the aviation fields: maintenance (MRO), business jets, converting passenger jets to cargo configuration, hangars and aviation arrays, aircraft upgrades and more.
