We are proud to present the latest edition of Falconer, which is mailed to decision makers around the world. If there is a theme that emerged in this issue, it is the fact that the Falcon family has touched and influenced people everywhere.

We start with a tribute to the late Claude Frey remembered by his friend Pete Ginocchio, in “My Friend, Claude Frey”. He was not only a very influential and thoughtful customer service leader in the Eastern Hemisphere for many years, he was also a citizen of the globe and loved to travel.

Our technology story for this issue, “Snowflakes” is an amazing story about a French engineer who in the mid- 1960s, with help from his American friends, conceived, designed and developed a technology that plays a critical role in every new Falcon flying around the world today.

Falcon pilot and world famous actor, John Travolta, is our special guest in this issue. In “New Heights” we speak with Mr. Travolta about his passion for aviation, the freedom it provides and how it has taken him and his family to unusual and exciting locations around the world.

In the “6X Progress Report” we bring you up-to-date on the next, state-of-the-art Falcon program that will soon connect Falcon operators to cities around the globe, near and far, in the largest cabin cross-section in business aviation.

UN Messenger for Peace and world famous cellist, Yo-Yo Ma, is on a mission to perform Bach in 36 cities around the globe. In “The Sounds That Bind” he shares his vision on how music can promote cross-cultural connection with citizens across the world.

Finally, in this issue’s “Perspectives” we meet the multi-talented Valérie Guillemet, general manager of Dassault’s Mérignac facility, and we explore the unspoiled natural wonder that is Vancouver Island, in “Stopover”.

Welcome aboard!

Eric Trappier Chairman & CEO Dassault Aviation
