Company Says The Airplane Features A 'Host' Of New Customer Options
Assembly of the 200th Falcon 7X has been completed at Dassault's Bordeaux-Merignac facility in southern France, and the aircraft enters final completion this week.
"We are especially proud of this milestone," said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon. "The 7X is clearly the best seller in the current Falcon family and remains one of the most sought after jets in its category."
Dassault Falcon has already delivered over 150 Falcon 7X's and another eighty are in various stage of production. The Falcon 7X fleet has accumulated over 130,000 flight hours since the first aircraft went into service in 2007, and is in operation in 32 different countries. Since the entry into service of the airplane five years ago, Dassault has developed dozens of new options that give customers a wide range of desirable features.
In particular; Dassault has focused on continuing to develop features that increase cabin comfort. Most recently, Dassault introduced a shower option for the 7X that has many of the features you might find at home. Anew cabin entertainment system equipped with business aviation's first interactive 3D moving map is also now standard for Falcon 7X customers.
In the cockpit, EASy II, the next version of Dassault's award winning EASy Flight Deck, will be available on the Falcon 7X at the end of 2012. EASy II will bring a number of cutting-edge options to the cockpit that enhance safety and situational awareness. These include synthetic vision, automatic descent mode, XM graphical Weather and ADS-B Out. The suite also includes two novel communications features, FANS 1A and CPDLC, which are compliant with Europe's new data link mandate.
An Enhanced Flight Vision System (EVS) option, certified in 2010, features a real time head up terrain display that increases pilot situational awareness, especially in low visibility approaches. The EVS allows the Falcon 7X to perform approaches below standard published minimums down to a 100-foot decision height.
