Dassault Aviation Rolls out 250th Falcon 7X

SAINT-CLOUD, France, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

 

Fastest Selling Falcon Ever 

Another milestone in the Falcon 7X program was reached this week with the roll out of the 250th aircraft at Dassault Aviation's Charles Lindbergh Hall in Mérignac near Bordeaux, France.

The aircraft entered final assembly earlier this year. It will fly to the Falcon completion center in Little Rock, Arkansas in June and will be delivered to its customer before year's end.

"This latest milestone is testimony to the outstanding reception that the Falcon 7X has received in the business aviation community," said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. "Thanks to this enthusiastic support, the Falcon 7X has become our fastest selling business jet ever."

A total of 216 Falcon 7X's are currently in service in 34 countries around the world. The fleet has accumulated more than 250,000 flight hours since it was introduced in 2007.

Exceptional Demand Driven by Outstanding Flight Performance 

The popularity of the Falcon 7X stems from the aircraft's unparalleled flying flexibility, operating economy and advanced technologies. The 7X was the first 100% digitally designed aircraft in business aviation and the first to be equipped with digital flight controls, and it remains the most advanced business jet in service today. It operates with ease from more airfields and with greater economy than any jet in its class.

"No other extra long range jet can match the 7X's short-field agility, fuel efficiency and handling qualities, more typical of a smaller super midsize jet than a large cabin aircraft," remarked Trappier.

The 7X consumes 15-30% less fuel than competing aircraft, cutting down significantly on operating costs. And thanks to its three-engine design, it can take shorter routes over water, saving valuable time and money on long transatlantic and transpacific trips.

The Falcon 7X can fly a typical approach at a slow 104 knots and land and stop in just 2,070 ft (631 m). It can do this at airports in hot and high locations and with steep approach and stringent noise restrictions. Its performance into and out challenging airports like Aspen, Lugano and London City Airports make the 7X unique among the long range business jets and is particularly appreciated by operators flying to such destinations. What's more, this airport performance can be achieved while offering much more range.

These unparalleled flying qualities do not come at the expense of traveling comfort. Passengers often comment on the aircraft's extremely comfortable cabin and the impressively smooth ride conferred by digital flight control technology, which allow them to emerge fresh and relaxed from a long 12-hour flight.
