Dassault downplayed quotes of Dassault Falcon CEO John Rosanvallon in French financial daily La Tribune about the aircraft manufacturer’s partnership plans in China. In the story, Rosanvallon talked of discussions with Avic on the possibility of cooperation on an indigenous business jet design or a local Falcon final assembly facility. “There is nothing more than talks,” a company spokesman told AIN. “Avic is an industrial partner like many others we have in the world. [It makes] part of a fuselage section on the Falcon 7X and part of the Falcon 2000’s fuel tank.”
