Saudi Arabia’s Wallan Aviation yesterday agreed to buy a new Dassault Falcon 5X. Wallan, which is a Middle East dealer for Cessna and Bell Helicopter, already operates Dassault Falcons (900EX EASy and a 900LX). It will use the aircraft for “the company’s own use with the option to charter,” said statement from Dassault, which reported that the Middle East accounted for 20 percent of 5X sales to date. Saad Wallan, chairman of Wallan Aviation, said, “We chose the Falcon 5X because it is the right aircraft for the Middle East.”
