Two French Air Force RAFALEs and a FALCON 2000LXS twin-jet aircraft
With France being the guest of honour, Dassault Aviation fully supports ILA 2018 with three Dassault aircraft: two RAFALEs of the French Air Force, and a FALCON 2000LXS twin-jet aircraft.
Designed and manufactured by Dassault Aviation, the RAFALE combat aircraft is capable of performing all types of mission, both for air and naval air forces.
The FALCON business aircraft are also designed and manufactured by Dassault Aviation and are recognized for their handling characteristics, operational flexibility, low consumption and innovative features.
Dassault Aviation‘s space in the French aerospace industries association GIFAS pavilion presents smaller models of other aircraft including the nEUROn, a stealth UCAV programme led by Dassault Aviation and conducted as part of a European cooperation to prepare the air combat systems of the future.
The dual nature of Dassault Aviation gives the group comprehensive knowledge of both defence and economic issues: Dassault Aviation produces its military and business aircraft out of the same design office and the same production units. The high technologies developed for defence activities therefore benefit its civil operations, which in return develop highly competitive industrial processes.
Playing a pivotal role in a strategic industrial fabric comprising hundreds of firms in France and internationally, Dassault Aviation is also the reference industrial shareholder of Thales Group.
