Description: Dassault-Aviation's Falcon is a family of business jets powered by two or three engines introduced in 1965 with more than 1,800 airplanes ordered from customers in 65 countries. The Falcon family has logged more than 11 million flying hours since its first customer delivery in the 1960s. From the twinjet Falcon 20 to the trijet Falcon 7X featuring intercontinental range, Falcon has taken profit from advanced technologies coming from both military and commercial range. Originally Falcon was known as the Mystere and inherited Dassault's expertise on military aircraft programs.

The first commercial model available was twinjet Falcon 20 (Mystere 20) followed by Falcon 200 which was also powered by two engines. In 1979, Dassault delivered the first long range, trijet Falcon 50 business jet. The Falcon 50EX is currently the last Falcon 50 model in production and is capable of traveling slightly more than 3,000 nautical miles (nm). Trijet Falcon 900 features ranges in excess of 4,000 nm (7,000+ km). In 1995, Dassault introduced Falcon 2000 twinjet aircraft for customers needing VIP transport for ranges no greater than 4,000 nautical miles. By 2006, Falcon 7X with an impressive range of 5,700 nm (10,500 km) will complete Falcon portfolio.

Dassault has designed the Falcon 7X to set new limits for the Falcon family of business jets while Falcon 7X becoming a benchmark in corporate jet segment. The revolutionary Falcon 7X relies on a trijet configuration to achieve longer range, higher altitude and speed records than any other Falcon jet ever. The three engine aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307A turbofan rated at 6,100 pounds. The PW307A belonging to PW300 series engines features low emissions and very low noise signature.

A non-stop range of 5,700 nautical miles (10,545 km) while cruising near Mach 0.9 is the fair bet of Dassault to outperform competition. A crew of four comprising three pilots and a flight attendant coupled with longer and wider cabin is aimed at providing higher comfort. Additionally, the cabin pressurization will be equal to 6,000 feet altitude instead of 8,000 feet which is the current standard in corporate aviation. Vibration reduction and quietest acoustics will help to match the high level of comfort set by Dassault for the Falcon 7X aircraft. The program was unveiled by Dassault in June 2001 at the Paris Air Show. The first Falcon 7X aircraft conducted its maiden flight at Dassault's facility in Bordeaux-Merignac, France, on July 5th 2005. As of September 2005, Falcon 7X has logged 50 firm order with deliveries expected to begin before the end of 2006. Type certification is expected for 2007.
