Two Falcon 8X aircraft have arrived at the manufacturer's completion facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. One of the two, 8X s/n 03, arrived in Little Rock during the summer for installation of a full interior that will conform to the 8X cabin comfort and functionality test programme. This aircraft will also commence an around-the-world operational test campaign to demonstrate reliability and performance in different conditions of flight, including high and low temperature, high humidity and high altitude operations.

The second unit to enter the completion line, 8X s/n 04, flew to Little Rock from Dassault Aviation's Bordeaux-Mérignac final assembly facility in early October. This aircraft will be the first production unit to be delivered to a Falcon customer. Nine other aircraft are currently in various stages of assembly on the Mérignac line as Dassault's new flagship ramps up production.
