Dassault-Breguet Falcon 30

10/31/2007. Developed from the Falcon 20F this aircraft was intended as 30-seat airliner and as 8 to 15-seat business aircraft. The original Falcon 20F wings were mated to a new lengthened fuselage with a cabin width of 7 ft 8.9 in (2.36 m). Powered by two 6,070 lb (2,753 kg) st Avco Lycoming ALF 502D turbofan engines, the prototype made its 75 minutes lasting first flight from Bordeaux-Mérignac, France, on May 11, 1973, with Jean Coureau and Jerome Résal at the controls. The project was cancelled in 1976 for financial and marketing reasons, the prototype is preserved at the Conservatoire de l'Air et de l'Espace at Bordeaux-Mérignac.
