DLR’s FALCON aircraft has been successfully conducting airborne atmospheric research for 35 years. HALO, a German research aircraft with extended and enhanced capabilities, is preparing to become the new European airborne research flagship for the next few decades. This chapter briefly describes the history behind the HALO project. It introduces the technical and operational features of this new research aircraft in comparison to the FALCON and presents the scientific research planned on HALO for the near future.
