Dassault plans to roll out its Falcon 7X ultra-long-range business jet on 15 February at its Marignac plant near Bordeaux, France. First flight is set for the second quarter leading to certification and first deliveries late next year. Dassault says the 7X is designed to be the fastest business jet in its class, with a Mach 0.9 maximum operating speed. The aircraft will be pitched against the Bombardier Global Express XR Sand Gulfstream G550.
