Overview

December 1961 saw Dassault start to develop an eight to ten seat aircraft, initially to be called the Dassault-Breguet Mystère 20. It was a low wing monoplane equipped with a pair of rear-mounted 3,300 lbf Pratt & Whitney JT12A-8 turbojet engines. The prototype made its maiden flight on 4 May, 1963 from Bordeaux-Mérignac airport in France.

The aircraft was then re-engined with a pair of General Electric CF700s and several dimensions were increased. Its first flight came on 10 July, 1964 and a production aircraft made its maiden flight on 1 January, 1965. French and American type certification was awarded in June of that year.

The Falcon 20 has a highly swept wing with leading edge slats to improve its slow speed performance and decrease the stalling speed. A number of Falcon 20s were later re-engined with the Garrett TFE731; these were re-designated with a ‘-5’ suffix inserted after the model number.

The Falcon 200 was an improved variant first flown on 30 April, 1980. It was powered by a pair of Garrett ATF3-6A-4C turbofan engines and the cockpit was modernised. The wing was re-profiled for improved low-speed performance and shortened runway requirements.

Production was terminated in 1988, but in November 2012 a Falcon 20 became the first civil jet to fly on 100 per cent biofuel.
