“For a plane to fly well, it must be beautiful”
-Marcel Dassault
We’ve built over 7,500 fighters and Falcons since our
founder uttered those simple, yet resonant, words.
Today, only Dassault makes both advanced fighter aircraft
and business jets. Falcons are known as the best designed,
best built, best flying business jets at the top of the market.
They have an inner beauty too—with large, functional cabins.
