As for the Rafale, the prospect of its first export success is approaching.
On 17th December, the first Falcon 8X, destined for flight testing, will roll off the production line at Merignac (near Bordeaux, South West France). For the occasion, Dassault Aviation has invited some 200 people, mostly customers. During 2016, the first business jets of the series will go to the Little Rock plant in the United States to have their cabins fitted out.
