Dassault Falcon 7X : A700 AdamJet Business jet advancement

Whether you know it or not, has an air traveler, you properly have been flying in aircrafts that are over 30 years old or older and your very use to it. Scores of commercial jets flying today were built in that period. Likewise many corporate business jets are in the same situation.

You'll fine 1970s or older Learjet's still in service, hundreds of them. Since they are well maintained, there are no problems. They were built to last and deliver first-rate performance for a long time.

But over the same time frame it's also true that technology has moved ahead enormously. Avionics and computer controlled electronics materials and much more have all reached such a high state of the art, that the founders of jet design could have only imagined any of these things ever happening. Older jets can't match or come close to the pleasure, convenience, and speed provided by riding in a jet constructed with today's technological design.

Business men and women have come to realize the productivity gains associated with private aviation.

Dassault Aviation has staked out a solid reputation as industrial engineer for complex airborne systems. Several key assets strengthen this global success: expertise in emerging and strategic technologies; an in-depth knowledge of the customer's technical, operational and financial requirements; and a comprehensive systems approach to meet cost, deadline and performance goals.

The Dassault Falcon 7X for example came off the assembly line fresh in June, 2007.

Dassault reports the sale of up to seven Falcon 7X tri-jets - four firm orders and an option for another three - to an unnamed client in Saudi Arabia. Delivery of the first business aircraft is expected to be at the end of 2009, followed by two aircraft per year, thereafter.

Operation of the airplane is achieved using a fly-by-wire (FBW) primary flight control system. This will be the first application of a FBW primary flight control system in a private/corporate use airplane.

Its fine mastery control surfaces allow extreme stability, this system reduces weight, and the leading edge of avionics made all this possible. The angles of flaps and other gears interact with the cables and the needed electronic that is all controlled by a computer. The result of all of this is in any weather condition you'll have instantaneous flight adjustment in all flying conditions.

Flying high-speed and longer is great, but flying in comfort is something else. Only the tallest will have to bend down with a cabin height of over 6 feet (1.8 m). So if this describes you, flying in the Falcon 7X wouldn't be a problem.

Small business jets are a common problem.

The Falcon 7X gives you plenty of room to stretch your feet across the nearly 8-foot wide cabin aisle, so you can lean back as you fly in the most state-of-the-art plane the industry has created.

But Dassault; a collection of French aviation companies led by Serge Dassault, isn't the only innovator in the neighborhood.

Adam Aircraft; a comparatively new company has been planning for approximately a decade to take a slice of the business jet pie.

With their A700 AdamJet upcoming release, they look positioned to do just that. Adam Aircraft launched the A700 project in 2002 with the first prototype performing its maiden flight in July 2003. The first production aircraft took to the air on February 6, 2006.

The A700 is in a group of new designs called Very Light Jet (VLJ). These sleek aircrafts are the latest entry in business jet design, delivering ultra-low weight for great speed and fuel economy. It can achieve a speed of roughly 400 mph (612 kph) and a range of 1,600 mi (2,660 km) with a pair of Williams International FJ33 turbofan engines.

Although you're only flying half the distance; half way from New York to LA, it's still half way.

You can also say not a lot of commercial flights these days fly non-stop.

And you're truly flying in style, when you're flying in the A700.

The attached tail assembly gives it a look of a space vehicle, with a fuselage that seems to include only the front half. The A700 delivers, it isn't science fiction.

Adam's order backlog stands at around 400 aircraft, with a worth of $855 million. The A700 was given a timely boost for the NBAA show by an announcement from Magnum Jet of an order for 101 units.

The expectations of business jet development looks optimistic, because it's already here, isn't that easy for you to see?
