Dassault Aviation rolled out the 250th Falcon 7X this week at the aircraft manufacturer’s Charles Lindbergh Hall in Mérignac near Bordeaux, France.

The milestone trijet entered final assembly earlier this year and will fly to the Falcon completion center in Little Rock, Arkansas, in June. It will be delivered to its customer before year-end.

“This latest milestone is testimony to the outstanding reception that the Falcon 7X has received in the business aviation community,” said Eric Trappier, Dassault Aviation chairman and CEO. “Thanks to this enthusiastic support, the Falcon 7X has become our fastest selling business jet ever.”

According to Dassault, 216 Falcon 7Xs are currently in service in 34 countries. To date, the fleet has accumulated more than 250,000 flight hours since it entered service in 2007.
