First Dassault Falcon 7X Enters Into Service

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.
