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.
