Dassault Aviation’s new-generation business jet, the Falcon 5X, took off for its maiden flight with preliminary engines on July 5th, 2017. Liebherr-Aerospace supplies two major systems for the aircraft: the integrated air management system and 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 the two-engine business jet.

Liebherr-Aerospace will offer support solutions for its components and systems on board the Falcon 5X during the business jet’s entire life cycle. Based on its international network of maintenance, repair and overhaul stations and spares distribution facilities, the company’s customer service organization ensures customer proximity and high-level performance for aircraft operators across the world.
