Dassault Falcon’s 500th Falcon 900, a Falcon 900LX, is in final assembly in Bordeaux-Merignac in France, marking a significant milestone for the French jet manufacturer.

This Falcon 900LX, which will initially serve as a demonstration aircraft, is scheduled to be handed over in early summer 2013. Twenty Falcon 900LX’s have been delivered since the latest version of the storied large cabin tri-jet line was certified in July 2010.

“The Falcon 900 family has thrived for so many years because of its versatility, comfort, performance and fuel efficiency,” said John Rosanvallon, president and CEO of Dassault Falcon. “The interior has always been highly regarded as one the most spacious and comfortable in its class.”

Since its first flight in September 1984, the Falcon 900 has accumulated over 2.6 million flight hours.
