Dassault Falcon received certification for the Falcon 900LX from the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China. This winglet-equipped version joins the rest of the Falcon 900 series, as well as the 7X and Falcon 2000 line, in being certified in China. The first Falcon 900LX will be delivered in China by year-end, according to Dassault Falcon. The Falcon 900LX was announced in May 2008 at Ebace and received FAA and EASA certification in July last year. Dassault Falcon Jet president John Rosanvallon is expecting a flurry of new aircraft sales in China during the second half of this year. In a company-produced video interview posted on Dassault’s website, he said that Dassault’s sales teams have been fielding growing numbers of inquiries from China. In recent months, some of these inquiries have resulted in sales to Chinese customers, and Rosanvallon expects more to come to fruition by year-end.
