There is a new director of aftermarket programs and business development at Dassault Falcon Jet. Olivier Langeard takes on the role, having previously served as head of business development and working for the Dassault Aircraft Services (DAS) subsidiary. Langeard joined Dassault Falcon Jet in 2003 as a structural engineer. He is based in Wilmington, Delaware.
In his new position, Langeard will be responsible for providing a wide range of options and solutions for the legacy Falcon fleet, including STCs and other upgrades offered to ensure compliance with regulatory mandates; enhance safety, efficiency and performance; and increase the value of customer aircraft.
Dassault sees these options as critical to its commitment to support its worldwide fleet of more than 2,100 aircraft – including more than a thousand Classic Falcons – throughout their lifespan.
Among the most popular offerings is the Gogo Avance L5 air-to-ground internet system, which has been installed on more than 50 aircraft since being certified in late 2017. Other popular STCs allow operators to meet forthcoming ADS-B Out and FANS 1/A compliance mandates.
Langeard will report directly to John Loh, senior director of customer experience, and will work closely with DAS and programs teams in France to ensure the company approaches all projects from a global perspective, to provide maximum benefit to customers across markets.
Langeard holds a Master of Science degree in mechanical engineering from The Georgia Institute of Technology, and an engineering degree from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers in Paris. He spends much of his free time restoring and piloting vintage aircraft.
