The Dassault Falcon 50 is the first of the Dassault jets to operate with three engines. The three engine design was introduced to accommodate tighter FAA regulations with how far planes could fly on two engines. FAA regulations later became less strict as technology got better and Dassault kept the three engine design due to its popularity and safety benefits. The Falcon 50 has a transcontinental range with incredible runway performance due to the slats in the wings. The three engines provide more thrust, making the aircraft being able to accelerate faster. The Falcon 50 is a very popular Super Mid in the charter market today.
