Olivier Langeard has been appointed Director, Aftermarket Programs & Business Development at Dassault Falcon Jet. 

Langeard, who has been with Dassault Falcon Jet since 2003, arrives at his new position from DFJ’s subsidiary company, Dassault Aircraft Services (DAS). Based in Wilmington, Delaware, Langeard started out as a structural engineer and most recently was named head of business development.

In his new position Langeard will be responsible for providing a wide range of state-of-the-art options and solutions for the legacy Falcon fleet, including Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) and other upgrades that ensure compliance with regulatory mandates; enhance safety, efficiency and performance; and increase the value of customer aircraft. 

These options are critical to Dassault’s commitment to support its worldwide fleet of more than 2,100 aircraft – including more than a thousand Classic Falcons -- throughout their entire life cycle.

Among the most popular offerings is the Gogo communication system 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 conducive to providing maximum benefit to customers across different Falcon 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 (ENSAM) in Paris. A passionate aviator, Langeard spends much of his free time restoring and piloting vintage aircraft.
