Falcon 10

The French-made Falcon 10 is a small business jet considered to be a shorter, scaled-down version of Dassault Aviation’s more popular business jet, the Falcon 20. A production run of 19 years ended in 1989, but this variant of the Falcon remains in limited use, particularly with the French and Moroccan armed forces, Canada’s Air Nunavut chartered air transport service, and various private operators around the world.

The Falcon 10 is powered by 2 Garrett TFE731 turbofans, the same engines used by the “second generation” members of the venerable Learjet family. These engines ensure quieter operation and improved operating efficiency compared to the older turbojets. The Falcon 10 has room for 6-8 passengers as well as a 41-cubic-foot cargo compartment, and its maximum range of 2212 miles makes it an ideal small business jet for regional use.

 

Since production of this Falcon variant ended more than a quarter-century ago, the majority of those examples in private ownership are secondhand aircraft. However, this should not be a cause for alarm since these same aircraft are constantly kept operational, thanks to the continued availability of genuine replacement parts for all Falcon variants from the 10 to the 50. Dassault Aviation provides these parts through its distribution centers in China, Russia, Singapore, Australia, and Brazil to name a few.
