Dassault Aviation has selected HexPly® M21EV/IMA, a high-performance advanced composite that has proven over the past 10 years to meet high-efficiency manufacturing standards. Thanks to Hexcel carbon fiber composites, the wide, high-speed wing will be made for maximum strength, reduced weight and minimum drag. The Falcon 10X is planned to enter service at the end of 2025.

Thierry Merlot, Hexcel President Aerospace Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa & Industrial, said, “I am delighted that Dassault has decided to expand our partnership of more than 40 years with the selection of Hexcel materials to design and produce its first Falcon carbon fiber wing based on Hexcel advanced composite technology. Our strong, durable and lightweight carbon fiber prepreg is helping customers such as Dassault every day to push the boundaries and create the future of next-generation aircraft.”
