Description of FALCON 10/100
Dassault Falcon Jets launched the Falcon 10/100 on its prototype flight on 1st December 1970. The aircraft – with its very avant-garde for the time look – experienced immediate success.
Twenty years of production bear testament to the supremacy this aircraft has over its competitors, in spite of it demanding a higher price per flight hour. Dassault Falcon has always been able to combine a beautiful design concept with exceptional flight performance, on-board comfort and flight speeds, the most appreciated aspect. After all, it was called the “corporate bullet” by pilots at the time of its launch; it flies at 850km/h and has a range of 3000km.
A twin-engine aircraft with capacity for 5-6 seats, the Falcon 10/100 has a cabin that is almost 4 metres long and 1.5 metres high. This allows for the seating to be set out in a club configuration. The hold, meanwhile, can easily accommodate 5 suitcases, taking the hassle out of packing.
The aircraft’s speed is one of its biggest selling points: for example, it can make the Basel – Athens route in 3 hours and 10 minutes or the Paris – Athens route in 3.5 hours. Overall this is an excellent aircraft for a making day trip, all without wasting any of the time normally associated with air travel.
