For my ATPL training, I was some times in the US for my Multi-engine rating together with a study-friend of mine, Koen. We together give theoretical lessons to PPL students.

Koen will probably start next week his training on a Dassault Falcon 50EX, triple jet, cruising 45.000 ft at 450 miles/hour (840 km/hour), range 3000 nm (5.500 km).

Jeeeezzzz, what am I so jalous and proud together.

Hi Peter

Why do they call it a Triple Jet? I can only see 2 engines.

Is that right - 45000ft cruising? I've only ever flown (passenger) commercial flights at 36000ft max.

Have you got any plans to better your current license?
