On the 5th of October 2016, Dassault Aviation has delivered its first Falcon 8X to Greece‘s charter operator, Amjet that became the first company to operate the business jet.

The aircraft received its EASA and FAA certifications in June 2016 and is entering service precisely on schedule, 2 years after it was first announced. Certification followed a month-long round the globe operating test campaign intended to ensure aircraft systems would be fully mature and operational from day one.

Based in Athens, Greece, Amjet offers fleet management, charter, sales and maintenance or repair services and operates a full line of Falcon jets, including the super midsized Falcon 50, the long range Falcon 900EX EASy and the very long range Falcon 7X.

Dassault Aviation’s new flagship, the 6,450 nm Falcon 8X, has been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency.

Another 11 aircraft are in final assembly in Mérignac and 16 are being outfitted and painted at the corporate completion facility in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA.
