Dassault’s success comes from years of evolving and augmenting its aircraft. A great example of this is the Falcon 20 midsize business jet. Improvements between variants included greater fuel capacity and greater engine power. The final (and best performing) variant, the Falcon 20F, features a redesigned wing that improves landing and takeoff performance in addition to increasing fuel capacity. 230 Falcon 20F’s were manufactured from 1971-1983.
The Falcon 20F is powered by two General Electric CF700-2D-2 engines rated at 4,500 lbs of thrust each. The inspection interval is 5,000 hours. This is the same engine used in the 20E.
For a relatively older midsize business jet, the Falcon 20F remains a promising contender in performance and comfort. And it’s obvious why: the 20F is a product of progression and fine-tuning. To put it simply, it is the final draft of the Falcon 20.
