When Dessault rolled out the Falcon 50 in 1976 it fast became the standard bearer for the super midsize category. Developed for long range transatlantic routes, the 50′s airframe was modeled on Dessault’s earlier, twin jet Mystère/Falcon 20 and Falcon 200 iterations. The nexus of agility, speed, and comfort, the Falcon combines the disciplined potency of a fighter jet with the luxury, noise insulation, and bountiful cabin space that define long range aircraft. The Falcon 50 shares top billing with the Hawker 4000 when it comes to range (3,600 miles) and is technically adept at negotiating even the shortest runways. A doyen of private jet aviation, the Falcon 50 remains one of the industry’s most sought after executive aircrafts.
