The Falcon Of Dassault Aviation

It’s been 45 years, since the company Marcel Dassault, created his first Executive plane. It is time to review the history of the Falcon. It all began in 1963, when Charles Lindbergh visited the Avions Marcel Dassault, as part of a team sent by Pan American Airways Inc. Mundial, to search for a business jet. Lindbergh, had very positive impressions about the Mystere 20 and transmitted them to the then President of Pan Am, Juan Trippe. It was in 1954, when Dassault begins to devise an aircraft capable of breaking the two engine models. Thus, in 1961, the Mystere 20 was under review; a ten passenger airliner with speed motor cruiser, designed initially for European connecting flights. In it, Dassault, tested technical solutions applied in military aircraft, with their own funds.

From that recommendation, Pan Am was established in the market and supported the Falcon 20, then known as admirers of the jet Falcon. As sales grew, the need for an agreement between the manufacturer and its marketing organisation, became apparent. And in 1972, Dassault and Pan Am, founded the company Falcon Jet Corporation. The Falcon 50, born in 1979, as the first jet of civilian use with carbon fiber parts.And just one year later, Dassault buys Falcon Jet Corporation to Pan Am, to launch in 1983, the Falcon 900, first Executive trijet wide cabin. Since the launch of the first Falcon 20, in 1963, they have flown nearly 2,000 Falcon to more than 65 countries around the world. Currently, the family Falcon, is comprised of five different airplanes, all located at the top of the business market: 1.
