Dassault Falcon 7X

Updated on July 3, 2011

If you are looking for a top of the line business jet, the Dassault Falcon 7X is a pretty good choice. Presented to the public at the Paris Airshow in 2005, the first of these sleek, ultra modern aircraft went into service June 15, 2007. As of June 18, 2007, there were 165 on order. At a time when the aviation industry world wide is not doing all that well, the Dassault Falcon 7X is prospering.

In 1936 it was nationalized by the French government. During the occupation, everything was virtually disbanded. In 1940 Marcel Bloch was arrested by the Vichy government, and in 1944 he was deported to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he remained, until he was liberated on April 11, 1945.

The company was revived in November of 1945 as Société des Avions Marcel Bloch, a holding company.In 1947 it was rechristened Société des Avions Marcel Dassault when bought by Dassault, an electronics firm. The Dassault Falcon 7X is an amazing marriage of aerospace engineering and cutting edge electronics. To read more about the company, follow this link:

Fly by Wire Video

The video I've embedded below is my favorite video about the Dassault Falcon 7X. When I watch it, at first I think how great it would be to be that bird in flight! Then I think how it would feel to be the pilot of the Falcon 7x. Then, at the very end, I wish I were the person who produced this video. It's that good!

Dassault Falcon 7X Features

The Dassault Falcon 7X is the first completely fly-by-wire business jet. It features the Honeywell Primus EPIC avionics that were used in the Falcon 900EX. It calls for a crew of three: a pilot, a co-pilot and one crew member and can accommodate fourteen non-crew passengers. Its powerplant consists of three Pratt and Whitney Canada PW307A turbofans. It is the first aircraft to be designed entirely on a virtual platform.

      Wandererh, thanks! Good question. A new Falcon 7X runs approximately 50 million dollars. However, you might be able to work out a better deal with the seller that I listed at the end of the hub!

      Great hub about a great plane!

      But for those of us looking to own the plane, you didn't include a price for it. I might be in the market for one of those, just need to add a couple of zeros to my bank account. :)

      What a fantastic-looking plane! Those wings seem to stretch out forever. Guess it might be time for me to upgrade from my last year's model. Cool, Aya.
