Dassault Falcon today unveiled two new features that further enhance its innovative
FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system. The new options developed by Rockwell Collins,

home, with virtually limitless choice of HD movies or music,” said Eric Monsel, Vice
President of Programs for Dassault Falcon. “It makes it possible for passengers to pick up
right from where they left off at home or in the office,” remarked Dave Austin, vice
president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins.
The Airshow iPad app option provides a way for passengers to monitor and track their
flight progress and call up a virtual moving map of any area around them simply by
pointing the iPad in the direction they desire.
FalconCabin HD+, which was launched last year in collaboration with Rockwell Collins,

features in one easy-to-use solution. The system also permits cabin functions to be
