Egypt receives Falcon 7Xs


Egypt has taken delivery of two Falcon 7X business jets from Dassault Aviation, where they are serving with the Government Flight.

According to Air Forces Monthly, the aircraft left Bordeaux Airport, France, on 12 December 2017 and arrived at Almaza Air Base in Cairo later that day.

The Egyptian Falcon deal is apparently worth around 300 million euros.

The Egyptian VIP jet fleet includes two Cessna 680 Citation Sovereigns, delivered in 2009 and 2010, five Gulfstream IVs, two Gulfstream 400s delivered in 2003, two Gulfsream IIIs delivered in 1984 and three Falcon 20s.

Egypt’s VIP jets are operated by the Government Flight at Almaza Air Base (Cairo East) alongside the Egyptian Air Force’s 516th Transport Brigade and the 601st Electronic Countermeasures Brigade that fly transports and helicopters.
