Users enjoying their Falcon 50s gradually began enquiring about a larger aircraft. That sparked interest from the engineering department in 1982 which led to the Falcon 900.
Its Falcon-50 lineage is obvious, yet conceals numerous developments. The fuselage is longer and wider, making the interior substantially more comfortable. This enables the Falcon 900 to carry 12 to 14 passengers, compared to the Falcon 50's eight passengers. The avionics are digital. Computer-aided design and manufacturing processes using Dassault Systems' CATIA system empowered engineers to design, fine-tune and produce this aircraft's structure and aerodynamic features with a focus on accuracy. The overall weight of the 900 was cut substantially by using composite materials for every application possible.

Production of the fuselage and wings, roughly 65% overall, was handled in-house, with the remaining tasks entrusted to different industrial partners. Final assembly and flying take place in Mérignac, where the Falcon 900 took off for the first time on 21 September 1984, with Hervé Leprince-Ringuet and Jérôme Résal in the cockpit.
The Falcon 900 enjoyed a great success among business aircraft buyers, and its power to attract enhanced the company market share. A total 160 Falcon 900s and 900 Bs have been delivered throughout the world. The Falcon 900EX version has been in the market since 1996.
