While not venturing to put a number on the sum of all Falcons he hopes to sell this year, Dassault Falcon Jet president John Rosanvallon did acknowledge to AIN last month that the “market now is more resilient than I expected in 2001 and 2002 that it would be.” Rosanvallon noted that “oversupply has been a problem, with white tails exerting price pressures, but Falcon Jet has no white tails.” DFJ said it took orders for 72 Falcons last year and delivered 66. In 2001, the company delivered 75 aircraft, and in 2000 it shipped 73.
