February 16, 2015 (Saint-Cloud, France): Dassault Aviation will present its Rafale fighter and its Falcon fleet at Aero India, India’s largest air show (18-22 February 2015, Bangalore, India).
Our static display will feature :
- one single-seat Rafale C and two two-seat Rafale B;
- a Falcon 7X trijet and a Falcon 2000LXS twinjet.
Dassault Aviation understands both defense and economic needs because it is a dual group, producing military aircraft (Rafale, drones) and business aircraft (the Falcons) in the same design office and the same production plants. The civil activities benefit from the high technology derived from the defense activities and offer an international capacity for industrial development in return.
The contract with Egypt for 24 Rafale (February 16, 2015) and the first flight of the Falcon 8X (February 6, 2015) consolidate this business model, which is without equal in the aerospace industry.
