On March 10th, 2021, the all-new business jet Falcon 6X manufactured by Dassault Aviation took off for its maiden flight and landed safely after 2.30 hours at Bordeaux-Mérignac (France).

Liebherr-Aerospace’s workshare in this extraordinary two-engine aircraft comprises the integrated air management system as well as the cabin air humidification system. Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Liebherr’s center of excellence for air management systems based in Toulouse (France), has leveraged its many years of experience to develop and manufacture light-weight and reliable components for both systems.

For over 70 years, the company has been developing, manufacturing, and servicing major systems or components of Dassault Aviation’s aircraft, including all members of the Falcon family such as the 7X, 8X, 900, 2000 / 2000EX and the 50EX.
