Some answers regarding the next Falcon aircraft and Dassault situation from TV Interview of Mr Eric Trappier, CEO of Dassault Aviation and President of GIFAS - Groupement des Industries Françaises Aéronautiques et Spatiales , on CNEWS :

- About economical situation:

Dassault expect a tough year following the turbulent 2020 and consequences, as said Mr Trappier: "Business aviation (-20%) suffered less than commercial aviation (-60%). 2020 has been a very difficult year for Dassault Aviation as it has been for the entire profession. 2021 will be as difficult. We're waiting for 2022." "The Covid-19 crisis will continue in 2021. For the Paris Air Show, we're thinking about whether we're doing it or if we're not."

-About the next Dassault Falcon aircraft:

Dassault is more on concern on a greener project than the race to the faster aircraft.

"I absolutely don't believe in supersonic for business jets for environmental issues. Dassault does not wish to follow up on a supersonic business jet."
