200th Falcon 7X Rolls Off Production Line
The 200th Falcon 7X has rolled off the production line at Dassault’s Bordeaux-Merignac production facility in southern France and is slated to enter the cabin completions process this week, the French aircraft manufacturer announced yesterday at the Farnborough Airshow. While most 7Xs are outfitted at the company’s Little Rock, Ark. facility, this one will be completed in Bordeaux.
“We are especially proud of this milestone,” said Dassault Falcon president and CEO John Rosanvallon. “The 7X is clearly the best seller in the current Falcon family and remains one of the most sought-after jets in its category.”
To date, Dassault Falcon has delivered more than 150 completed Falcon 7Xs, while another 80 are in various stages of production or outfitting. The Falcon 7X fleet has logged more than 130,000 flight hours since the first aircraft went into service in 2007 and is in operation in 32 countries around the world.
Over the past five years Dassault has developed dozens of new options, with a particular focus on developing features that increase cabin comfort. This includes a recently added option for a shower aboard the trijet. Dassault has also incorporated several new features as standard equipment since entry into service, such as the FalconCabin HD+ cabin entertainment system.
