Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) will be used for all customer acceptance and departure flights from the Dassault Aviation completion facility in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The use of SAF at this site is part of the SAF plan implemented by Dassault to reduce the carbon footprint of its aviation operations. Under this plan, all flights operated by company-owned Falcon aircraft, whether for business, transport or Falcon support, are using SAF blends.
Dassault shared that SAF offers carbon-emission reductions of 80-90% compared with conventional jet fuel when used in its concentrated form. All Falcon aircraft are certified to use up to 50% SAF blends. The new Falcon 10X will be compatible for a 100% SAF blend from entry into service.
The Little Rock plant is supplied with SAF by Avfuel Corporation and Neste.
