Dassault Falcon sales declined by 72 percent last year compared with 2014, according to preliminary numbers released today by the French aircraft manufacturer. In 2015, Dassault reported 45 gross Falcon sales, but a NetJets cancellation of 20 Falcon 2000s brought the net tally to just 25 aircraft.

The previous year totaled 90 net Falcon orders. For 2015, Dassault cited “the economic environment, especially in emerging countries,” which also impacted deliveries. A disappointing 55 new Falcons were delivered last year versus an expected 65, which would have put 2015 on par with 2014.

As of December 31, the backlog included 91 Falcons, compared to 121 Falcons one year before. In fact, Dassault's Rafale fighter garnered more export sales than the company's business jets last year. Dassault will release its full 2015 financial performance on February 26.
