Charles Edelstenne, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation, today announced Rolls-Royce has been selected as the engine partner for Dassault's future super mid-sized Falcon. The decision was made following a thorough analysis and study involving five engine manufacturers.
"One of the keys to success of any aircraft program is the choice of engine partners. Rolls-Royce has demonstrated their capability to provide an all-new engine in the 10,000 lb thrust range that will meet our exacting requirements in terms of reliability, performance and fuel efficiency with minimum environmental impact." said Charles Edelstenne at Dassault's press conference. "The new partnership between Dassault and Rolls-Royce will be a winning formula in this rapidly growing segment of the business jet market."
With the certification and first deliveries of the Falcon 7X complete, Dassault has now focused attention on pre-developing a new super mid-sized Falcon. After the propulsion, other major technological choices will be finalized within the next twelve months.
