Dassault delivers 2,500th Falcon

French manufacturer Dassault Aviation marked the delivery of the 2,500th Falcon corporate jet on 2 July. The latest delivery, of a Falcon 900LX, comes more 52 years after the handover of the firm’s first aircraft (a Falcon 20) back in 1965. The latest aircraft was delivered to a US customer from the manufacturer’s completion centre in Little Rock, Arkansas. According to company statistics, the Falcon fleet has recorded some 17.8 million flying hours with aircraft having been registered in over 90 jurisdictions. Dassault’s CEO and chairman Eric Trappier said: “Of the 2,500 Falcons delivered to date, more than 2,100 are still flying – which is a clear testimony to the high quality and robustness of our Falcon aircraft and the dedication of those that support them.”
