The Falcon 200 is a twin turbofan mid size corporate jet from Dassault Aviation. It was introduced in 1979 as a longer range more powerful development of the Falcon 20. Dassault developed over twenty different variants of the Falcon 20 and 200 aircraft with upgrades or specialized modifications to meet specific needs of clients. Dassault stopped producing the model 200 in 1988 in favor of its distinctive trijet designs such as the Falcon 50, Falcon 900, and Falcon 7X.
The major performance improvements of the 200 over the 20 are attributed to the more powerful, fuel efficient engines, greater fuel capacity, wing design changes, and more advanced avionics. These changes significantly improved the range and speed and pilots reported performance and handling improvements as well. The 200 reaches cruising altitude faster, maintains a faster cruise speed, achieves greater range, and can utilize shorter runways than the 20.
Although the cabin dimensions are identical to the 20, the improved 200 jet offers an improved passenger experience as well. The design team managed to increase the galley size while maintaining a spacious feel with executive style extra-wide seating and a full-width private lavatory in the rear.
For an older model, the Falcon 200 competes well with newer aircraft. Owners and operators love these aircraft and take every opportunity to upgrade and enhance the aircraft systems and cabin interiors.
