BRIEF HISTORY – FALCON 100 – FERRARI OF JETS
DASSAULT FALCON 100 (1983-1989)
The Falcon 10 was introduced by the French military aircraft manufacturer, Dassault Aviation, in the late 1960s as a bridge between the Falcon 20 and smaller turboprop aircraft. Dassault is renowned for their military-grade engineering, incredible structural integrity, and an abundance of technological advancements. Despite the fact that the Falcon 10’s first prototype had turbojet engines, the second prototype had turbofan engines as per customer demands. The Falcon 10 made its first flight on December 1, 1970 and in 1973, the FAA granted certification to this design. Dassault’s commitment to excellence is exhibited clearly as it continuously works hard to improve upon its platform to ensure they are providing the best aircraft possible. This is why it remains popular in the market to this day.Dassault released a redesign of the Falcon 10 in 1983, with an optional EFIS glass cockpit upgrade, a higher maximum takeoff weight, an additional window on the starboard side of the aircraft, and a larger, unpressurized rear baggage compartment were among the improvements and upgrades made to the “all-new”, Falcon 100. Following the modification, 37 more planes were produced before production was stopped in 1989. The Falcon 10’s production began in 1973 and concluded in 1982 when the Falcon 100 replaced it. 189 Falcon 10’s have been produced and only 37 Falcon 100’s were produced and sold.
CABIN COMFORTS – FALCON 100
The Falcon 100 can comfortably seat four adults, but in an executive configuration with four individual seats and a back bench seat, it can carry up to six passengers. It’s worth noting that the “lavatory” on board has been referred to as an “emergency lavatory” or not as pleasant, a bucket with a curtain, is located between the flight deck and the cabin and is surrounded by a curtain when in use. It’s a lavatory that converts from a sideways facing seat. It is one of the aircraft’s few drawbacks.The cabin of the Falcon 100 measures 16 feet 5 inches long, 4 feet 9 inches wide, and 4 feet 11 inches tall. Near the flight deck, there is 13 cubic feet of luggage storage, with an additional 25 cubic feet aft. The Falcon 100 also has an external baggage compartment that can hold up to 28 cubic feet. The cabin of the Falcon 100 is encircled by seven windows, providing even more natural light, opening up the environment for your family or business trip.The Falcon 100 can maintain a comfortable cabin environment for your flight with a cabin differential pressure of 8.8 psi, meaning the cabin remains at sea level up to 23,00 feet and will remain at a comfortable 8,000 feet of altitude while flying at its cruising altitude of 45,000 feet.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – FALCON 100
Two Honeywell TFE 731-2-1C turbofan engines are installed in the Falcon 100. Each engine has a thrust rating of 3,230 pounds. On a typical day, the Falcon 100 requires only 4,485 feet of runway to take off at sea level with these engines. At an altitude of 5,000 feet and a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, the takeoff distance climbs to 7,600 feet. This private jet just needs 3,330 feet of runway to land with four passengers.The Falcon 100 has a range of 1,920 nautical miles and a maximum certified service ceiling of 45,000 feet. In a high-speed cruise configuration, the Falcon 100 can maintain an airspeed of 476 knots at a height of 37,000 feet for a quick flight to your business destination. In a long-range cruise configuration, the Falcon 100 can maintain a speed of 431 knots at a height of 41,000 feet, allowing it to make the most of its amazing range.
FLIGHT DECK – FALCON 100
A glass cockpit with an integrated Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) was one of the upgrades included in the Falcon 10 redesign. 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 might be included in a typical avionics package for the Falcon 100. The Collins EFIS 85 five-tube panel is another avionics instrument found on some Falcon 100s. Most Falcon 100’s have been updated many times over with the latest in avionics technology.
CHARTER A FALCON 100 – THE FERRARI OF BUSINESS JETS
The Falcon 100 has become an infamous aircraft over the years, being nicknamed the Ferrari of jets as there were only 37 ever produced. Fearful the improvements would threaten larger, more expensive aircraft in its family, Dassault shelved the 100 and 200 models and subsequently tried to buy them back quietly from the owners. Should you ever get the chance, be sure you hop on and fly on one of the most rare production business jets in the world.
