Rolls-Royce Selected By Dassault Aviation To Power Future Falcon

Powerplant To Provide 10,000-Lb Thrust Range For Super-Midsize Jet

Rolls-Royce and Dassault Aviation announced Friday a new partnership, wherein the enginemaker was selected as the engine partner for Dassault's future super mid-sized Falcon jet. The decision was made following a thorough analysis and study involving five engine manufacturers.

"One of the keys to success of any aircraft program is the choice of engine partners. Rolls-Royce has demonstrated their capability to provide an all-new engine in the 10,000 lb thrust range that will meet our exacting requirements in terms of reliability, performance and fuel efficiency with minimum environmental impact," said Charles Edelstenne at Dassault’s press conference. "The new partnership between Dassault and Rolls-Royce will be a winning formula in this rapidly growing segment of the business jet market."

With the certification and first deliveries of the Falcon 7X complete, Dassault says its attention is now focused on developing a new super mid-sized Falcon. After the propulsion, other major technological choices will be finalized within the next twelve months.

This will be the first partnership between Rolls-Royce and Dassault in the business jet market. Rolls-Royce is the leading engine supplier in the sector, with a 34 percent market share. Rolls-Royce engines power more than 3,000 corporate aircraft worldwide.

Sir John Rose, Chief Executive, Rolls-Royce, said: "This agreement marks an historic step in the development of our corporate aircraft engine business and further establishes Rolls-Royce as the leading supplier of engines and services to the corporate jet and regional airline markets. We are delighted to partner with Dassault, one of the world's premier aerospace companies, and look forward to a long and successful relationship."
