The Falcon 7X is a fly-by-wire ultra-long range business jet which flies further and faster than any of its Falcon predecessors. It features a completely new wing design including winglets, which makes the longer range possible.
As of September 2017, 27% of the Falcon 7X aircraft were purchased pre-owned by their current owners, the other 73% new. 7.7% are for sale with the majority of those (67%) under an exclusive broker agreement. When for sale, the average time on the market is 284 days.
The Dassault Falcon 7X was first presented to the public at the 2001 Paris Air Show and first flew in May 2005. The type certificate was received in April 2007 from the FAA and EASA and it entered service in June.
There are 271 Falcon 7X aircraft in operation today. Most of these are wholly owned (267) with 4 in shared ownership. 9.2% are currently leased. Europe has the largest percentage of wholly owned Falcon 7X aircraft (43%), followed by North America (31%) and Asia (16%).
