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, the Israeli company 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 Aero Structures facility.
In order to meet the high demand for the new aircraft, the company will support Dassault Aviation’s entry-into-service target for the Falcon 10X for 2025, alongside the production ramp up.
