FlyingGroup expands as Falcon 7Xs enter service
FlyingGroup, which has brought the first of two Falcon 7Xs into operation, has acquired the main original building and adjacent hangar at Antwerp airport.

FlyingGroup, which has brought the first of two Falcon 7Xs into operation, has acquired the main original building and adjacent hangar at Antwerp airport. Bernard Van Milders, ceo, says: "The growth of FlyingGroup and the continual extension of the fleet require greater infrastructural capacity at our Antwerp base.

"This is why FlyingGroup decided to invest in the acquisition of the Airventure buildings. The company now has an additional hangar measuring 1,200 sq m and 260 sq m extra office space. The famous building, characterised by its 1930s architecture, will in the first instance accommodate FlyingGroup's ever-growing fleet."

"The acquisition of two new Falcon 7Xs and the extension of our infrastructures at Antwerp will enhance our services to passengers and aircraft proprietors," he adds.

FlyingGroup , which also has bases in Rotterdam, Luxembourg, Paris and Cannes, says the 7X has an operating radius of over 5,900 nm and a non-stop flying range of 13 hours. Milders adds: "The Falcon 7X makes it possible to link intercontinental destinations with no stop-over. In addition to seating two in the cockpit, the 7X can accommodate 16 in the cabin. It can reach a cruising speed of 905 km/h at an altitude of 15 km."

He says the 7X is the first corporate jet to be equipped with a digital flight-control system (fly-by-wire) and EASy piloting systems.
