DUBAI, UAE, December 6, 2010 - Dassault Falcon, has recently appointed a new Customer Service Manager to
support its customers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates,
Egypt, Jordan and Syria. Bernard Delouye will be based in Jeddah, Saudi
, where a significant part of the Falcon fleet is based. Mr. Delouye
comes with a strong aviation background acquired in the French military and
refined while working as a consultant to foreign defense industries. He also
has a good knowledge of the region where he has been living for 12 years. He
will take over his new role from Mr. Arnaud Deleval, who retired earlier this
year after serving Middle East Falcon customers for 10 years.

The appointment comes in the wake of the opening of a Dassault Falcon
regional sales office in Dubai as well as the appointment of two new
Authorized Service Centers in Jeddah and Dubai. Dassault Falcon currently has
around 60 business jets based in the region and expects this number to grow
by 30% over the next three years, with a strong order book driven by sales of
the Falcon 7X.

Commenting on the appointment, Guillaume Landrivon, Director, Customer
Relations and Field Service at Dassault, said: "Bernard Delouye has the
perfect combination of skills and experience for this role thanks to his
technical background. His substantial knowledge of the Middle East ensures
that he will strengthen our customer service management team's ability to
deliver first class field support."

Bernard Delouye brings to Dassault more than 24 years of experience in
aeronautical maintenance, working on both helicopters and Dassault fighters
jets. He is 44 years of age and married with one child.
