“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
Dassault Unveils Falcon 2000S Cabin Design
Dassault Falcon Jet unveiled the BMW Group Designworks cabin for its new Falcon 2000S at the Singapore Airshow this week. The design beat thousands of products from more than three-dozen countries to win the 2011 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Center for Architecture, Art and Urban Studies. The 2000S interior–which uses visual elements such as ambient lights to optimize cabin space–is available in three variations: Sedona, which features earthy beige colors; Havana, which offers a palette of browns; and Alpine, which contrasts the colors of an alpine peak with the darker colors of earth and rock.
