Accidents & Serious Incidents involving FA7X

  • FA7X, London City UK, 2016 (On 24 November 2016, a Dassault Falcon 7X being marshalled into an unmarked parking position after arriving at London City Airport was inadvertently directed into a collision with another crewed but stationary aircraft which sustained significant damage. The Investigation found that the apron involved had been congested and that the aircraft was being marshalled in accordance with airport procedures with wing walker assistance but a sharp corrective turn which created a 'wing growth' effect created a collision risk that was signalled at the last minute and incorrectly so by the wing walker involved and was also not seen by the marshaller.)
  • FA7X, en-route, north east of Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, 2011 (On 24 May 2011, a sudden uncommanded maximum upward deflection of the trimmable horizontal stabiliser occurred to a descending Dassault Falcon 7X. Automatic opposite elevator movement did not resolve the situation and an upset lasting just over 2½ minutes followed with a 9,500 feet climb at up to 41° pitch and a speed drop to 125KCAS. Only autonomous return of normal pitch response ended the control difficulty. The remainder of the flight was without further event. A single suddenly defective component with no effective crew response available and not anticipated during type certification was found to have caused the runaway.)
