|The Falcon 50 is an intercontinental version of the Falcon 20 series. The 50 is unique in that it utilizes three Garrett fan engines. The three-engine configuration is needed to lift the 50's extra weight, while also offering an added margin of safety during extended overwater flights. The outside dimensions of the 50 are larger then the 20 because of the additional engine, yet the interior dimensions are the same. Most Falcon 50's were equipped with the optional Garrett APU. This aircraft can be RVSM certified when service bulletin SB-246 is complied with.
An AlliedSignal TFE-731 engine retrofit provides increased performance and reliability.
