The Falcon 50, built by Dassault Aviation since 1976, is the third business jet and the first tri-engine aircraft in the Falcon family.
To meet American demand for a long haul business jet, Dassault Aviation began studying the Falcon 50 in 1974. The aircraft would have traveled 3,400 nautical miles, or 6,300 km, with a FAR 121 reserve, which would have allowed it to cross the North Atlantic or the United States without stopping. The Dassault Falcon 50 was the first business aircraft capable of nonstop crossing the Atlantic to public transit standards and the first civilian aircraft to be equipped with a supercritical wing.
It is based on an extrapolation of the Mystère 20 with a third reactor placed at the foot of the drift, briefly named Falcon 20-3 at the prototype stage. Dassault Aviation had already launched other projects such as the Falcon 30 and Falcon 40, and the Falcon 50 designation was eventually chosen. The first MSA 50 to leave the factory on September 4, 1976 is the only Falcon equipped with ejection seats. The first flight will take place on November 7, 1976 and the certificate received on February 27, 1979.
The model was replaced April 1996 by the 50EX (extended range) engine with Honeywell TFE731-40-1C engines (3700 lb thrust, identical to the first engine but with reduced fuel consumption and increased verification potential).
An extrapolation of the Model 50 is the Falcon 900 with a larger fuselage. Falcon 50 is operated by commercial companies; The French Navy uses it for maritime surveillance missions in a modified version (Falcon 50M Surmar: Maritime Surveillance) from existing units, delivered a total of 8 units in May 20162.
The last Falcon 50 rolled off the assembly line in 2007 under the number.
