By the end of October 2001, Dassault claimed 40 deposits, split almost evenly between the United States and other parts of the world.
During the Paris Air Show in June 2001, Dassault took 20 deposits.
The Falcon 7X, which was at first dubbed "FNX" is the latest business jet project from Dassault and the highest performing Falcon yet. It will offer non-stop flights from Paris to Tokyo or Los Angeles.
Main feature of the Falcon 7X is the wing. It is larger than previously, features a supercitical profile and has more sweep. This will allow an MMO of Mach 0.9.
Fly-by-Wire controls are implemented for the first time.
The cabin has the same cross section as the Falcon 900EX, but will be stretched by over 8 feet.
The cockpit will be based on the "EASy" concept by Honeywell (Primus Epic family roots). Four large, 14,1 inch displays will be fitted.
"Partner-Suppliers" selected for the Falcon 7X are:
- EADS Socata (upper fuselage section, body fairings)
- Goodrich (air data system)
- Hurel Dubois/Aermacchi (nacelles and thrust reverser)
- Intertechnique (oxygen system)
- Latecoere (T5 fuselage section)
- L'Hotelier (fire detection and extinguisher system)
- Honeywell (EASy Flight Deck avionics, APU, air management system, hydraulic power generation)
- Messier Dowty (landing gear)
- Parker (hydraulic system)
- Sonaca (wing leading edge)
- Sully Saint Gobain (windshields and windows)
- TRW (electrical systems)
After some months of rumours, the Falcon FNX was unveiled by Dassault at its press conference on the opening day of the Aérosalon at Le Bourget on 16 June 2001.
More details were revealed by the US distributer Falcon Jet Corp on 29 October 2001 at Teterboro, New Jersey. At that time, the designation was changed to Falcon 7X. Also, major subcontractors and the engine choice were announced.
First flight took place in Bordeaux-Mérignac in France on May 5, 2005. The Dassault falcon 7X received its Type Certificate (TC) from EASA and FAA on April 27, 2007.
