The Falco is the result of the combination and evolution of several significant components, that Icaro has developed over the last few years. Leading to a glider with extraordinary performance for its class. We have been focusing on the perfect interaction of feedback between pilot and wing. Excellent take off behaviours, absolutely intuitive canopy control and rock solid stability even on full bar insure a safe and reliable feeling from the start.
WHO IT IS FOR
The Falco was designed for all pilots looking for the ultimate flying pleasure and fun in the air, while having a safe and exceptionally well performing wing within the EN classification A. The Falco is certainly one of the best choices for beginner pilots.
The Falco is equipped with very modern design features such as Shark-Nose and only 2 main lines per line level. In combination with a light material mix, the glider takes off perfectly in all kinds of conditions. A well balanced mixture between aspect ratio and canopy curve ensures a smooth and very damped ride through turbulences. Equipped with the additional Leading-Edge Mini-Ribs, the Falco shines when you push on the speed bar. The excellent glide ratio is outstanding within its class. The most important criteria though, is the handling, which has been tweaked to perfection during numerous development stages. Despite very dampened roll and pitch behaviour, we still managed to achieve precise handling, allowing for a tight and flat turning. The brake pressure progressively increases for optimized thermal flying.
Regardless if you are a beginner or pilot of many years experience, the Falco provides the best of both worlds, pleasure in flight and highest safety standards.
