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 program joins IAI’s other aerostructures programs 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.
Shmuel Kuzi, IAI EVP and General Manager of the Aviation Group, 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.”
