Dassault Falcon is expanding its presence in
to improve its ability to serve this rapidly growing business jet market.
Dassault Falcon will be present at Jet Expo 2012 (
) with an expanded trade show booth and a spacious static display. Two long-range Falcons, the flagship 5,950 nm Falcon 7X and the 4,000 nm Falcon 2000LX, will be part of the event.
Falcon Aircraft Well Received in
Half of new Falcon orders in
are for the 7X, the only business jet equipped with a fully-digital flight control system, which ensures greater control and operational safety and a smoother flight. The 7X can connect
nonstop and is the only aircraft in its class able to operate at the challenging London City Airport in the heart of downtown
. It is also capable of landing at very small airfields like La Mole-St Tropez (
), where no other jet of its size can go.
The three engine design of the Falcon 7X and the Falcon 900 line are particularly prized in a country where extended flights over inhospitable terrain are the rule and the need for versatility and safety, paramount. These trijets account for some two-thirds of the Falcons flown by Russian operators.
Falcon Customer Service Presence Growing in
Dassault Falcon currently operates a sales office in
and is nearing agreement with Avia Group to set up a Falcon Authorized Service Center at
Sheremetyevo Airport. The center, to be located in the vicinity of Avia Group's new Terminal A passenger building, which was inaugurated earlier this year, is projected to open in 2013.
In addition, the company will shortly move its existing Dassault Falcon Service satellite service center at Vnukovo Airport, which has been in operation for seven years, into new premises at the Vnukovo-3 executive aviation terminal, closer to the licensed maintenance providers it supports.
