Dassault Delivers 75th Falcon 7X

New Software Updates to Improve Capability and Procedures

Dassault is set to deliver its 75th Falcon 7X during a ceremony at EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland on Tuesday. The 5,950 nautical mile tri-jet is now operating in 24 different countries and has logged over 30,000 flight hours and 15,000 takeoffs and landings. The 7X was jointly certified by the FAA and EASA in April, 2007, and has since received type certification from 14 countries with orders being received in 42 countries.

"The rapid accumulation of flight hours by our Falcon 7X fleet is a testament to its reliability," said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon. "No other aircraft offers the same efficiency, range of performance or technological advancements as those available in our flagship aircraft." The Falcon 7X is powered by three Pratt and Whitney Canada PW307A engines that help make the Falcon 7X category leader with both fuel efficiency and airport performance.

The backlog of the Falcon 7X now stands at 120 aircraft. "Given the events in our industry over the past eighteen months, having such a strong backlog is proof of the aircraft's versatility and the recognition in the marketplace that the Falcon 7X is a true industry leader," continued Rosanvallon.

Upcoming Falcon 7X Enhancements
The 7X is set to receive a new round of enhancements with the release of five Service Bulletins. Among the modifications is the "Load 10" update to the EASy flight deck. Load 10 includes TOLD (Takeoff and Landing Data), which provides automatic computation of engine ratings and key speeds (V1, VR, V2) as well as landing distances, field length and other related data.

Provided in Load 10 is Windshear Escape Guidance, which gives direction to pilots to minimize altitude loss while maintaining a safe stall margin. Another new feature, Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS), provides aural alerts during approaches, landing and ground operations to help increase situational awareness.

Additionally, certification of the Falcon 7X Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) is expected in the middle of 2010. The EFVS increases situational awareness in difficult weather conditions and provides an operational benefit to properly trained crews which will allow approaches to be flown with a decision height as low as 100 feet above ground level.

"This newest update of the avionics and flight deck of the 7X brings an enhanced level of reliability, performance and safety to what is the most advanced business jet in the world," said Rosanvallon.
