Overview & History
The Dassault Family crafts jets with high standards of engineering, structural quality, and technological advancement.
Although Dassault’s models have evolved and improved over time, 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 100s were built before production halted in 1989. 37 aircraft have been built so far.
