Falcon 225


The Wills Wing Falcon has USHGMA certification, 7075 airframe for strength and light weight (19 - 23 kg). Fly prone or seated (with PG harness). The Falcon can be rigged both flat or on the A-frame. Hang glider pilots are amazed at the manoeuvrability, superior climb and easy landings.
The Falcon 225 Tandem skyfloater can be used for tandems but is probably better suited for learner or solo pilot over 90kgs.
Shortening of the rear wires and keel suits motor harness. 

 

One version of the Falcon primary single surface glider held the world record for cross country distance on a single surface glider at 205 miles (330 km).

 

The Falcon model line has gone through changes from the original Falcon, to the Falcon 2, to the Falcon 3. The Falcon 225 was rated for 185-440 pounds (meant to be tandem-capable), while the Falcon 2 225 was rated 185-300 pounds (meant for solo use). There is no Falcon 3 225 because the Falcon 3 195 is rated up to 275 pounds. The Falcon 3 Tandem was also approved for solo use by very large pilots.
 
The original 1995 Falcon for novice pilots is described as a breeze to land and handles superbly. It keeps at the top of the stack easily.

The 2002 Falcon 2 has a cleaner leading edge and trailing edge (no bungees) than the Falcon 1, and carries more weight per size. Still for novice pilots, a great flier, and very light in weight. The only downside is that they don’t penetrate headwinds like a double-surface, so range is reduced.
 
The 170 Falcon 2, is 22kg single surface, low stall speed, simplicity, turns flat on narrow coastal soaring, easy landing but is a little bit tricky to start without assistance as the nose want to rise (no problem in weak winds).
 
The 195 Attack Falcon 2 with mylar sail and Slipstream control bar (airfoiled base bar) was a fine hang glider.
