Dassault enjoying increased Falcon deliveries
With the exception of the Falcon 900C, deliveries in the first half of this year of the other three Falcon models increased significantly over the same period last year: 48 airplanes vs 38. Compared with deliveries through the first six months of last year (shown in parentheses), the French manufacturer said for this year it delivered: 23 Falcon 2000s (15); 12 Falcon 900EXs (11); nine Falcon 50EXs (eight) and four Falcon 900Cs (four). Meanwhile, Dassault Falcon officials reported refundable deposits ($300,000 each) for more than 20 of its new Falcon FNX. The company does not plan to announce additional orders for the new jet until next month’s NBAA show.
