    A new Falcon 900EX for a prominent customer had its livery designed by the Happy Design Studio and features a tri-color livery dubbed "Thermidor". It pays homage to the family's heritage and the owner’s embodiment of French values, according to the Design house. The plane is for the grandson of Dassault. Four subtle shades of gray paint stretch across the fuselage of Dassault’s 900EX as well as a trilogy of blue, white, and red stripes.

    Dassault Falcon Service (DFS), a Dassault Aviation subsidiary based in Paris-Le Bourget, recently completed the conversion of a Falcon 900B from passenger configuration to full cargo in record time. The conversion, involving a company-owned aircraft, took eight days from reception of the order toapproval by French Civil Aviation authorities, granted under a fast-track exemption. The project entailed stripping passenger seats and furnishings and installing equipment to stow and secure freight. No major modifications to access doors or other systems were undertaken and the conversion is readily reversible back to passenger configuration. The modification involved customer service, engineering and operating teams from DFS as well as test and certification resources from Dassault Aviation.The aircraft is being used to transport fabric needed for the production of face masks to a plant in Eastern Europe and to return completed masks for distribution in France, North Africa and other areas stricken by the Covid-19 pandemic or recovering from the coronavirus lockdown. Flying these materials in a converted business jet is considerably faster and provides greater flexibility than commercial airfreight or ground transport. Capacity is 13.5 cubic meters or 6,325 lbs (2,884 kg).
