Dassault Aviation recently opened the doors of a secret place to us, a place that only a select few know - the aircraft manufacturer’s showroom. A kind of shop window for their Falcon customers. It is in a large building, located at Le Bourget airport, near Paris (France) that they come to choose their future private jet interior layouts.
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.
The French Council for Civil Aviation Research (CORAC) recently brought together the key players in the French aviation industry, with the aim of establishing an overview of current research on aircraft of the future. Amongst them, Dassault Aviation caught our attention with a model which is currently undergoing wind tunnel tests.
