F.8L Falco, N627SF

For more information, see Jim Petty in the Falco Hangar



Approaching 77 years, I find that I'm no longer flying enough to justify hanging on to this classic bird. It's time to pass it on to someone who'll love owning and flying a Falco as much as I have.

None. Only compliments. I built this plane to fly it. While I'm proud of my workmanship, I chose not to spend the extra time and money to make it a show plane.

PRICE: $69,500

The price includes all logs, manuals, blueprints, records, receipts, construction photos, spares, molds, templates and specialized support/maintenance equipment and tools.

I hold the FAA Repairman's Certificate for this airplane, and have performed most of the maintenance, repairs and minor modifications to it. I will remain available for consultation with the new owner about this airplane. If practical, I am also willing to assist with the first annual inspection by the new owner or his mechanic to help familiarize him or her with this airplane.
