A good part of Dassault Aviation’s profile at this week’s Aero India show is based on its Rafale fighter, which was last year selected for the country’s new Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft requirement. But the French manufacturer also has big business aviation ambitions in India, as is evidenced by the pair of Falcon 7X trijets it has on display this week in Bangalore, along with a Falcon 900LX and a 2000S.

The FAA is proposing a new airworthiness directive for certain models of Dassault Falcon 2000, Falcon 2000EX, Falcon 900, Falcon 900EX and all models of the Falcon 50. It is prompted by reports that collapse of the main landing gear could cause wing-tank structural failure, resulting in fuel spillage and fire hazard. It would require modification of the wing fuel tanks in the area of the wheel well. The FAA is taking comments until November 26.
