Buy A Falcon 50 US, UK & RoW Business Jet
1974 saw Dassault Aviation begin work on a new long-range aircraft. Their brief was to create a business jet that could fly 3,400 nautical miles non-stop, the equivalent of crossing the United States, or the North Atlantic, on FAR 121 reserves. The Falcon 50 was the first trans-oceanic plane in the Falcon family, flying out of Bordeaux-Mérignac in November 1976.
In December of the same year, the Falcon 50 prototype was refitted with improved wings and took to the skies again in May 1977, becoming the world’s first civil aircraft with supercritical wings. The jet achieved certification in February 1979. The 50 was followed in 1995 by the Falcon 50 EX, which can fly both higher and faster.
