The 250th Falcon 7X has rolled off the production line at Dasault Aviation facility in Bordeaux, France.

Eric Trappier, chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation, said: “This latest milestone is testimony to the outstanding reception that the Falcon 7X has received in the business aviation community.”

“Thanks to this enthusiastic support, the Falcon 7X has become our fastest selling business jet ever,” said Trappier. “No other extra long range jet can match the 7X’s short-field agility, fuel efficiency and handling qualities, more typical of a smaller super midsize jet than a large cabin aircraft.”

There is a total of 216 Falcon 7X business jets  currently in service in 34 countries around the world.
