Falcon SMS super-midsize jet

Just over 50 years since Dassault Aviation’s first Falcon jet flew in May 1963, the business jet family has never been more crucial to the long-term business of the French manufacturer.

Falcon 900 winglet

Aviation Partners, Inc. (API, Booth 283) is anticipating EASA certification of its winglets for retrofit to Dassault Falcon 50 jets in the coming weeks. The expected approval will be the European counterpart of the FAA supplemental type certificate received in September 2012. The aerodynamic devices are the same “high-Mach blended winglets” currently available on the Falcon 2000 and 900 series (all three Falcon series share the same wing) and are promised to provide drag reduction and corresponding range increase of “5 to 7 percent at typical intermediate to long range cruise speeds.”
