First Cockpit assembly of Falcon 2000 by DRAL to Dassault Aviation

The first cockpit front section of Falcon 2000 series produced by Dassault Reliance Aerospace Limited (DRAL) in its manufacturing facility at MIHAN, Nagpur, is ready to be handed-over to Dassault Aviation. Matching with the highest quality standards, this first front section is to be delivered to Dassault Aviation's Falcon final assembly line in France. In parallel, larger infrastructures are being developed and will soon be completed allowing the ramp-up of DRAL capabilities toward the taking-off of an entire Falcon 2000 fully manufactured and assembled in India.

“This is a new step in Dassault Aviation's setting-up in India, comforting its decision to invest in India for the future and in its commitment to the "Make in India" initiative. It demonstrates the company's determination to establish in India state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities with cutting edge technologies as well as best-in-class international aeronautical standards in terms of efficiency in production and competitiveness. Further to the creation of the joint venture Dassault Reliance Aerospace Limited in February 2017 and the laying of the foundation stone of its manufacturing facility at MIHAN in Nagpur end of October 2017, this visible achievement illustrates Dassault Aviation's determination to build up an Indian aerospace manufacturing eco-system, matching the highest standards in this field and positioning India as an international reference in the global aerospace market”, stated company officials. This first Falcon 2000 cockpit coming out of the DRAL facility at MIHAN, Nagpur is being  displayed on Dassault Aviation's booth here at Aero India.
