Dassault is showing two large cabin Falcons at Russia’s Jet Expo 2011, which is being held between September 14-16. The 4,000 nm Falcon 2000LX and Dassault’s flagship the Falcon 7X are on static display at Vnukovo-3 airport. Dassault Falcon has had a presence in the region since the early 1990s, and today has a sales office in Moscow, as well as a Satellite Service Station to support operators in the area. Dassault Aviation plans to expand significantly Falcon’s presence in Russia in the coming years.
“Dassault Falcon has a positive outlook for the business aviation industry in Russia. As companies continue to invest and expand, particularly outside of Russia, they will continue to demand the most efficient methods of travel,“ said Gilles Gautier, senior Vice President, Falcon Sales for the Eastern Hemisphere. “Russia is a very large country with tremendous energy resources and a rapidly expanding economy. We’re finding that Russian entrepreneurs and business owners are quick to adapt to business aviation because of the great advantages it offers in access and time management,” he added.
