Taylorcraft Model F / F-19 / F-21

taylor-f

The F-19 and F-20 are revived and improved versions of the Models 19 and 20. A modernisation after Continental suspended production of the O-200 engine.

The 1979 T-Craft was the F model. With 100 horsepower, it weighs 900 pounds and it can lift another 600 pounds. The T-Craft tops out at 110 knots, it stalls at 37, and it departs or returns to Earth fully loaded over a 50-foot obstacle in 375 feet. It will cruise 350 miles while sipping six gallons an hour.
