Business jet manufacturers turn to Twitter

Last month, Dassault Aviation announced it is expanding its presence on social networks by establishing itself as a social media force on Twitter.

While most private jet manufacturers have had accounts for some time, it’s still worth checking out @Dassault_OnAir as it’s already filling up with plenty of interesting content.

The French firm has been posting all its breaking news on the feed – including the recent announcement that the 200th Falcon 7X has rolled off the assembly line. Dassault says it has already delivered over 150 Falcon 7X’s and another eighty are in various stages of production. The Falcon 7X fleet has accumulated over 130,000 flight hours since the first aircraft went into service in 2007, and is in operation in 32 different countries.

Last week they also posted some great photos of the new Falcon showroom at Le Bourget which you can see here

Not to be outdone, there’s still plenty of interesting material on the Twitter accounts of the other leading private jet manufacturers like @GulfstreamAero, @fly_cessna and @Bombardier_Aero.

If you’re on Twitter they’re all worth a look along with @ChapmanFreeborn.
