Evolution of the Falcon 10, the Falcon 100 has an exterior-access luggage hold and an improved cabin. It was the first certified business aircraft featuring EFIS-technology and color screens in the place of electromechanical cockpit instruments.

A total 226 Falcon 10s and Falcon 100s were delivered to customers including well-known orchestra conductor Herbert von Karajan.
