Dassault Falcon plans to launch its super-midsize (SMS) trijet on October 22 at the NBAA Convention in Las Vegas. In July last year, the first SMS parts were being manufactured for testing purposes at Dassault’s Argenteuil factory northwest of Paris. Sources told AIN earlier this year that the jet’s empennage will be made entirely of composite materials, using thermoplastic resin.
