Dassault confirms 7X improvements
Dassault has confirmed the performance increases of its Falcon 7X aircraft. In addition to an increase in payload, the range has been upped to 5,950nm. The performance increases have been made possible by the fitting of winglets and additional fuel tanks in the forward section of the fuselage. The thrust for the Pratt & Whitney Canada 307A engines has also been increased to 6,400 pounds. MTOW has been extended to 69,000 pounds.

The performance increases have been made possible by the fitting of winglets and additional fuel tanks in the forward section of the fuselage. The thrust for the Pratt & Whitney Canada 307A engines has also been increased to 6,400 pounds. MTOW has been extended to 69,000 pounds.

"Our goal from the first day of the Falcon 7X programme was to exceed the expectations of our customers and to build an aircraft Dassault would be proud of," said Dassault Aviation chairman and ceo Charles Edelstenne.

"We've succeeded in both areas. Our customers are getting more from the aeroplane than they were promised and the 7X is performing in the best tradition of our visionary founder, Marcel Dassault."
