Didier Wolff, owner and designer at Happy Design Studio, recently revealed his work on a new Thermidor livery for the Dassault Falcon 900EX, celebrating Olivier Dassault’s many accomplishments in civil and military aviation, and in French culture, as an engineer, photographer, pilot and deputy of the French National Assembly.
Dassault added a specific for the livery, Captain Georges Guynemer’s famous motto: Faire face, which can be translated as ‘face-up’ or to confront a challenge. Guynemer was a famous fighter pilot who fell in action in 1917, and whose name was given to the first class of the French Air Force Academy (created in 1935), from which Olivier Dassault graduated with honours. Wolff incorporated the motto into the rings of the Falcon’s engines.
The fuselage is painted with four subtle grey shades stretching and adjusting to the top of the drift. The darkest of them rushes to the engines and returns to the landing gears after veering around the last window. Blue, white and red stripes appears on both sides of the aircraft’s radome and thicken over the aircraft’s back.
As a wink to Olivier Dassault’s French deputy mandate, this aircraft becomes an ambassador of both the Dassault company and France.
The aircraft was painted at Le Bourget by SATYS under the supervision of Dassault Falcon services and Wolff himself.
