First Falcon 8X Set for Delivery to Indian Operator by end of 2016


Dassault-Falcon8X

Dassault Aviation, the international French aircraft manufacturer, will be showcasing their fleet of Falcon long cabin, long range business jets in India’s largest civilian aviation exhibition, India Aviation. This will be the fifth occurrence of India Aviation and will open at Hyderabad Begumpet Airport, on March 16. At the prestigious event, Dassault Aviation will be presenting their popular Falcon 2000LXS widebody twinjet.

Dassault leads the Indian market for long range, large cabin aircrafts, as they currently have 22 aircrafts in services with plenty more on order. Their position as the Indian market leader is due in part to the Indian Air Force’s previous experience with Dassault fighters, which have served as the basis for the Falcon 7X.

We expect the country’s accelerating economic growth to translate into rising Falcon sales going forward. No other business jet line is more suited to local requirements, whether it be in terms of cabin design, flying performance, fuel economy or versatility, than Falcon.

said Eric Trappier, the Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation.

The largest portion of the current Indian fleet is comprised of the Dassault’s Falcon 2000 twinjet. This popular aircraft is near approaching its 600th production mark, as sales are presently being pushed for the latest edition in the 2000 line, the Falcon 2000LXS. This new aircraft provides short-field capabilities similar to smaller midsize and super midsize business jets, while also offering a comfort level and range far more superior than these other aircrafts. Certification for Dassault’s FalconEye Combined Vision System option on the Falcon 2000 line will take place this summer.
