Falcon 900 is larger and has more range. Go to this Link for a complete comparison of all of Dassault's Falcon series.

If I had a choice, I'd still take the Gulfstream V-SP over it though (personal preference). Right now, with my low time, I'll fly anything that's airworthy!!! :D

I have very little time in the 10... the owner sold it right after I went to school and bought a 20.... I think I have more time in the 10 sim than I do the plane... I have about 500 hours in the 20, about 1,250 hours in the 50EX and about 600 hours in the 900EX...

I was flying the Lear 35 when I went to Falcon 10 school.. I thought the 35 was a more capable airplane as far as range and altitude... the Falcon 10 was better at speed (down low) and had better runway numbers...

I like the 10 but miss the 20. The 10 is a little small....

Have you ever seen Yannick Lavigne's Falcon 50 for FS2002? It's free and awesome I think.

http://caea.free.fr/en/simu/falcon502k2.html

It has an entire virtual cockpit, cabin, etc. Really cool. And flies really well. If you have the program you might want to check it out. The screenshots really don't do it justice as they are far back from the panel but you can move anywhere in the a/c you want.
