Dassault Falcon

Dassault Aviation delivered five more Falcons than it forecast last year while backlog grew for the French-made business jets, the latter helped by the introduction of the ultra-long-range Dassault Falcon 10X in May. In total, the company handed over 30 Dassault Falcons last year–four fewer than it shipped in 2020 and 10 fewer than it did in 2019.

Dassault Falcon 7X Dassault FalconThe Paris-headquartered aircraft manufacturer took in 51 net orders for Dassault Falcons in 2021, with the backlog now at a four-year high of 55 units. That compares to 15 net orders a year earlier and backlog of 34 Dassault Falcons as of Dec. 31, 2020. Dassault Falcon backlog was in the low-50s between late 2017 and 2020; it stood at 63 units at year-end 2016.

Meanwhile, deliveries and sales of its Rafale fighter were equally buoyant, with shipments of 25 aircraft, up from 13 a year earlier. Net orders for 49 drove Rafale backlog to 86 units versus 62 at the end of 2020.

Dassault Falcon will report its full-year financial results, to include aircraft delivery guidance for 2022, on March 4.

MEET THE MIGHTY DASSAULT FALCON 10X

The high end of the large business jet category has a new leader. With the sheer size and infinite layout possibilities of its cabin, the Dassault 10X elevates comfort, style, and flexibility beyond all expectations. And next-generation military technologies have endowed it with the beating heart of a fighter, with astounding safety innovations. You can be sure that its 7,500 nm (13,900 km) range and maximum speed of Mach .925 will help keep you in the lead.

The Dassault Falcon 10X has a cabin cross section larger than some regional commercial jets, allowing for new layout possibilities. The Dassault Falcon 10X cabin is 6 feet, 8 inches (2.03 m) tall and 9 feet, 1 inch wide (2.77 m). It is almost 8 inches (20 cm) wider and 2 inches (5 cm) taller than the widest and tallest purpose-built business jet flying today. What can you do with all that space? The real question is — what can’t you do?

What most distinguishes the Dassault Falcon 10X is the sheer dimensions of its cabin. It will simply be the biggest and most comfortable on the market, offering far greater flexibility with a wide selection of interior configurations. Rather than four cabin zones of equal length, you can smartly configure your cabin with different zone lengths to create completely customized interiors. For example, you can create an expanded dining/conference area, a dedicated entertainment area with a large-screen monitor, a private stateroom with a fixed queen-size bed (and room to walk around it), or a master suite with a private stand-up shower. The baggage compartment is the largest in its class, with more than enough space for a transoceanic journey and conveniently accessible in flight.
