Charter, Buy or Lease a Falcon 100
The Falcon 100, a light, twin-turbo fan business jet, remains popular in the used aircraft market, and for good reasons. It was introduced for the first time in 1983 as the redesigned continuation of the Falcon 10. Following the redesign period, 37 Falcon 100’s were built before production halted in 1989. The Falcon 100 is the first certified private aircraft to use EFIS-technology and color screens in its cockpit. The cabin is able to seat six passengers in an executive-club configuration (nine in a high-density arrangement).

More about the Falcon 100
The Dassault Corporation introduced the design of the Falcon 10 in the late 1960s as a mid point between the vastly successful Falcon 20 and smaller business jet aircraft. Though the first prototype of the Falcon 10 featured turbojet engines, the second prototype was equipped with turbofan engines due to customer requirements. This configuration was awarded FAA certification in 1973. Due to the success of this private business jet, a redesign was introduced in 1983. The Falcon 100 featured several changes and upgrades, including an optional EFIS glass cockpit upgrade, a higher maximum takeoff weight, an additional window on the starboard side of the jet, and a larger, unpressurized rear baggage compartment.
Production on the Falcon 100 started in 1983 and ended in 1989. 37 aircraft have been built so far.
Key Features of the Falcon 100
The cabin of the Falcon 100 measures 12.9 feet in length, reaches 4.8 feet in height and stretches 5 feet in width. In an executive club seating arrangement, the Falcon 100 is configured to provide seating for four passengers, although six may be accommodated in this layout in a high-density situation. In other seating configurations, this private jet is capable of accommodating nine passengers. Amenities of the Falcon 100 include a lavatory and internally accessible rear baggage storage. Seven windows surround the cabin, allowing ample natural light for a comfortable working environment. Featuring a maximum cabin differential pressure of 8.8 psi, the Falcon 100 is capable of maintaining a sea level cabin altitude at an altitude of 23,000 feet.
Capabilities of the Falcon 100
The Falcon 100 comes equipped with two Honeywell TFE 731-2-1C turbofan engines. Each engine is rated at 3,230 pounds of thrust with an inspection interval of 4,200 hours. With these engines, the Falcon 100 needs only 4,500 feet of runway to take off at sea level on a standard day. This takeoff distance increases to 7,600 feet at an airport altitude of 5,000 feet and a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. With four passengers, this private jet requires only 2,250 feet of runway to land. The Falcon 100 features a maximum certified service ceiling of 45,000 feet and a range of 1,532 nautical miles. For a swift flight to your business destination, the Falcon 100 is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 476 knots at an altitude of 37,000 in a high-speed cruise configuration. To make use of the Falcon 100’s impressive range, this private business jet is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 431 knots at an altitude of 41,000 feet in a long range cruise configuration.
One upgrade featured in the Falcon 10 redesign was an Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) integrated glass cockpit. A typical avionics package utilized for the Falcon 100 might include a ALT-55 radar altimeter, dual Collins FCS 85 flight directors, a Sperry Primus 400 color weather radar, dual Collins VHF 20A comms, dual VIR 30A navs, dual Collins DME 42, a Collins ADS 80 air data computer, dual Collins ADF 60A, Global GNS-XLS FMS, and a Collins APS 80 autopilot. An additional avionic instrument featured on some Falcon 100s is the Collins EFIS 85 five-tube panel.
