Arrives In Paris Early Thursday Morning
Dassault Falcon tells ANN the first Falcon 7X entered service
Wednesday, following delivery to Mr. Gilbert Chagoury, Founder and
Chairman of The Chagoury Group. It arrived at 4:50 AM Thursday in
Le Bourget Airport in Paris, France following a non-stop flight
from Dassault's completion center in Little Rock, AR.
Chagoury was the first order holder for the Falcon 7X (s/n05)
when he signed his commitment in November 2001, and represents the
first delivery in a backlog that now stands at over 165 aircraft.
The next Falcon 7X (s/n 04) is to be delivered in the coming days
to Mr. Serge Dassault and will be on display at the Dassault
Aviation static display at the Paris Air Show next week.
"The technical achievements of the Falcon 7X program and the
dedication of the program engineers and Dassault employees
worldwide is well known," said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO
of Dassault Falcon. "However, equally important is the support and
encouragement of the Falcon 7X customers like Gilbert Chagoury who
have been with us through every step of the development,
manufacturing and flight test process."
Announced at the Paris Air Show in 2001, the Falcon 7X was
simultaneously certified by both the EASA and FAA on April 27,
2007. It sports Dassault's EASy Flight Deck and is powered by three
Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307A engines.
Offering a range of 5950 nm (eight passengers, M.80 with NBAA
IFR reserves,) Dassault notes the Falcon 7X can comfortably connect
95% of the most commonly-used business aviation city pairs.
