NASCAR’s Fast Corporate Jet



NASCAR’s Dassault Falcon 50EX

Falcon 50 corporate jet

With 3 Honeywell turbofan engines, this Dassault Falcon 50EX is a very fast jet – just what you would expect from NASCAR.

This 2002 Dassault Falcon 50EX is the corporate jet that top executives from NASCAR fly on when setting up business deals with corporate sponsors and traveling to events around the country.

A Dassault Falcon 50EX is a long range transcontinental jet capable of flying non-stop from New York to Los Angeles, or making a transatlantic flight to Europe. This jet is capable of flying 3,075 nautical miles at mach .80 without refueling.

Want to charter a Dassault Falcon 50EX? Just contact Dassault Falcon Service. Operated by Dassault, the company provides on demand executive flight service for anyone needing private jet charter service.

NetJets, Blue Star Jets and Sentient are also major operators who can help you charter or buy fractional time on a Falcon 50.

At maximum weight this jet can go wheels up with just 4,890 feet of runway – getting this jet into many smaller airfields that larger jets are unable to land at.

3 powerful Honeywell TFE731-40 turbofan engines help get this jet off the runway quickly, and speeds the jet through the sky very quickly.

Step inside this jet and the first thing you’ll notice is how roomy the cabin is. Thanks to a dropped center aisle the cabin height is 71 inches – standing room for most people. The cabin is 24 feet long and over 6 feet wide – giving you plenty of room to relax or get some work done on a long flight.

A typical corporate configuration is shown in this floor plan – but Dassault aircraft designers typically work with buyers to customize the interiors of most Falcon jets that roll out of the production facility.

Dassault fits the Falcon 50 with very comfortable leather seats that tilt, swivel and fully recline for maximum passenger comfort. 14 cabin windows give passengers a great view and create an open, airy feel inside this jet.

Dassault equipped this jet with Collins Pro Line 4 Avionics including:

  • Four 7.25-inch square 4-tube Electronic
    Flight Instrument System (EFIS) displays
  • Autopilot
  • Weather Radar and Single Controller
  • Air Data System
  • Radio Altimeter
  • Dual VHF Comm, VOR/ILS, DME, ADF, Mode S Transponder and Digital RTU’s
  • Three Sextant EIED’s (Engine Instrument Electronic

Displays)

  • Dual FMS-6100 Flight Management Systems with GPS
  • Dual Honeywell Laseref Inertial Reference Systems
  • Honeywell EGPWS with Windshear Detection
  • Dual HF; Two-Channel SELCAL
  • Cockpit Voice Recorder
  • ELT and Specified Emergency Equipment

Besides passengers, this aircraft has plenty of room for baggage or gear. The cargo compartment holds 115 cu. Ft. of gear.

According to Dassault, “The Falcon 50EX is built like a jet fighter to bring out your competitive spirit.”

Dassault is an international aerospace business that has both corporate and military aircraft. The company currently operates 3 USA facilities in Little Rock, Teterboro and Wilmington – as well as 11 locations overseas.

Prefer to own your own Falcon 50EX – No problem – jus be prepared to shell out $16 to $20 million for one similar to N500R.
