Founded in 1929, Dassault Aviation is a French aircraft manufacturer and a subsidiary of Dassault Group. The 2500th Dassault Falcon business jet (a Falcon 900LX) was delivered in July 2017 since the first Falcon 20 was delivered to a customer in 1965.
The Falcon family includes Super Mid-Size Jets with the Falcon 50 and Falcon 2000S, Large Jets with the Falcon 2000EX and Falcon 2000LXS and Super Large Jets with the Falcon 900 series (B, EX, C, DX, LX) and the Long Range Jets Falcon 7X and Falcon 8X.
With a first flight on May 5th 2005, the Dassault Falcon 7X was the first business jet with fly-by-wire controls. The Dassault Falcon 7X, Dassault Falcon 8X and Dassault Falcon 900 are the only trijets still produced today. Dassault aviation is currently working on a new Falcon project powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada engines with a 5’500 Nm range and scheduled to enter into service in 2022.
