F.8L Falco, N660RH

Sold to Simon Paul

For more information on this Falco, see Rex Hume in the Falco Hangar.

 

It has been a tough decision over the past two years to sell a “REAL” airplane that has been the most exciting and important 28 years of my flying life - ten years building the Falco and eighteen years flying it.  Believe me it is an attention getter where ever I fly.  It is a two finger flying aircraft that goes where you point it, and faster than most Falcos.

My medical has run out and will not be passable in the near future and being 84 years old - it is time to hang it up.  Sell it or torch it.

Some of the features you won’t see on other Falcos - Aluminum engine cowling, smooth wing trailing edge with no cutouts or small doors screwed on, wood wing to fuselage fillet like the production aircraft and full compliment of gear doors.

I have had the privilege of being a member of an elite group of pilots and aircraft owners - having built and flown a Falco for 650 hours without any mechanical or design problems with a wonderful airplane.
