The new Falcon 5X is getting closer to its first flight as Dassault announced they are planning a roll out on June 2nd. They say the 5X is expected to make its maiden flight this summer. The number one 5X was powered up for the first time at the end of August last year, and system and vibration ground testing began last fall. An Emergency Airworthiness Directive, AD 2015-10-51 has been issued to owners and operators of all aircraft that incorporate certain Avidyne Corporation Integrated Flight Displays. The AD references to specific part numbers and software releases for Model R9 ten-inch and Model R9 twelve-inch units.
