Falconar Minihawk
 
Falc-Minihawk-1
 
The Falconar Minihawk is a Canadian amateur-built aircraft, produced by Falconar Avia. The aircraft is supplied as a kit (US$11,600 kit only, less engine, 1998) or plans for amateur construction.
 
The aircraft features a cantilever low-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit under a sliding canopy, fixed tricycle landing gear or, optionally, conventional landing gear, and a single engine in tractor configuration.
The Minihawk is made from wood, with its flying surfaces covered in doped aircraft fabric. The aircraft's recommended engine power range is 65 to 100 hp (48 to 75 kW) and standard engines used include the 100 hp (75 kW) Continental O-200 four-stroke powerplant. Construction time from the supplied kit is estimated as 1500 hours.
 
Even though a prototype was constructed, by November 2012 no examples were registered in its home country with Transport Canada.
