Introduction

 

The X-air Falcon also known as the Xair-F in some countries, has the same configuration as the standard Xair, high wing, 2 side by side seats, dual controls, toe brakes, elevator trim etc. as the Xair, with the addition of a 3 stage flap.
The maximum all up weight of 450kg is the same, but has an improved wing profile which is shorter in span and cord.   The wing section is now also fully double surfaced to the root and the fuselage tail section extends to the rudder post giving a more streamlined apperance.

The Falcon is manufactured in India, and is supplied in kit form, which comes very complete. Only your choice of Engine/Prop & Instruments are required to finish it, ready for flight.

Nearly all of the exposed tubing, comes White Epoxy painted for long life, and it looks good too. Some components come pre-assembled, e.g. Tailplanes & Elevators, and all the required nuts & bolts are in thier relevent place's, to speed up assembly.

The Falcon like the X-air is fitted with full Dual controls, i.e. two sticks, two throttles, so it doesn't matter what seat your in, it feels just the same.
The main advantage of being in the left seat is to get the use of the superb independant toe brakes, fitted to the top of the Rudder pedals.

There is plently of sideways room inside, such that the shoulders do not touch. The seating is great and are fitted with headrests. The cockpit floor is solid, so no more watching where you put your feet, like in the older design microlights. Added comfort is gained in the colder days, by fitting the optional door kit, which makes it even enjoyable on the worst of days.
Ground handling is excellent, especially the suspension. Each wheel has its own shock absorbing system, which takes out all of the bumps from the roughest of fields, alot of other microlights would'nt go, where an X-air would go!

In flight the Falcon handles exceptionaly well, the improved wing section, makes flying in rough weather a doddle. The pitch control is nicely balanced, and the aerodynamic Trim tab, does away with all the efforts on the stick.
Short take off's and landings is what the Xair has been all about and despite the wing profile change to the Falcon the addition of flaps makes it land on the spot !
