60 years of advances

60 years

From 1963 to today,
the Falcon story still fascinates.

Falcon at 60

History was made on May 4, 1963, when the Mystère 20, which became the Falcon 20, first appeared on the international stage and became an asset of American business. This year, 2023, marks the 60th Anniversary of that momentous event and the six decades of advances that led to the development of the 10X, the fastest, longest-range Falcon yet. As always, the Falcon brand continues to push the envelope of what’s possible.
