Latecoere to design and build the passenger door for Dassault Aviation’s new Falcon 10X

As one of Dassault Aviation’s long-standing partners Latecoere is proud to be part of the new Falcon 10X. The Aerostructures division will design and build the new business jet’s passenger door, confirming with this new contract its position as the world’s leader in aircraft doors.

Since April Latecoere has been producing a full-scale prototype of the door in its Toulouse facility to de-risk the programme and is expecting to produce the doors the whole duration of the program as well as provide maintenance parts and services.

Latecoere is also supporting Dassault Aviation on the design of the Falcon 10X, for its pilot emergency exit door, a complex part of the fuselage, and its electrical harnesses.

“Latecoere is proud to be part of the new Falcon 10X programme and values Dassault Aviation’s continued trust in our company. With this “design and build” contract for the passenger door and “design engineering” on the fuselage and electrical harnesses we continue to demonstrate our unique expertise and confirm our leadership position,” Thierry Mootz said, Chief Executive Officer of Latecoere.

The first door is scheduled to be produced in July 2022.
