Since our new business airplane report was finalized, a third Falcon 7X, S/N 03, joined the flight-test program. First flown on September 20, it will be used primarily for avionics, systems and function and reliability testing. At press time the Falcon 7X test fleet had logged 171 hours in 60 sorties. Certification is expected late next year for the fly-by-wire trijet.
