Dassault Falcon plans to launch its super-midsize (SMS) trijet on October 22 at the NBAA Convention in Las Vegas. In July last year, the first SMS parts were being manufactured for testing purposes at Dassault’s Argenteuil factory northwest of Paris. Sources told AIN earlier this year that the jet’s empennage will be made entirely of composite materials, using thermoplastic resin.
NBAA2013 – Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition • Oct. 22 to 24, 2013 • Las Vegas, NV
NBAA2013 is the can’t-miss business aviation event of the year and the sixth largest tradeshow in the U.S. The key operators and industry leaders will meet in Las Vegas to conduct business, make buying decisions and set the stage for business aviation activity for the year ahead. Attendees, the decision makers in the industry, will spend time on the exhibit floor, meeting and interacting with exhibitors and assessing aircraft and products for future purchases for their companies.
Exhibits at NBAA2013, indoor in the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) exhibit halls and on the static display of aircraft at Henderson Executive Airport showcase the world’s finest business aircraft, services and products to about 25,000 attendees. What those attendees see at NBAA2013 will influence business aviation purchasing decisions throughout the following year.
