Dassault has released an image at NBAA of the first Falcon 2000 Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) for the Japanese coast guard.
The aircraft – the first of five for the coast guard – is developed from the Falcon 2000LX. The aircraft is due to enter service in the first half of 2019, says Dassault Aviation executive vice president civil aircraft Olivier Villa.
“We don’t usually communicate on special mission aircraft because the systems are secret. But we had authorisation to share this picture,” he says.
