My name is Hal White, I live in Memphis, Tenn. I just took over ownership of my dads Falcon UL from Medina, NY. His name was Thomas White. He had it for 4 years and was getting ready to fly it but back trouble stopped any further progress. I am looking to fly by spring, but I have many questions about set-up & wing covering. I also would like to know if anyone else has one near my area. I can be reached by E-mail at hwhite4566@aol.

HI Falcon owners and enthusiasts! My name is Ralph Keeney you can see my falcon in the Falcon owners section. I live in upstate NY near Hammondsport ( the cradle of aviation ). There are several ultralights at our local grass strip most of which are conventional such as Avids and hi-max and mini-max. Mine is the only falcon but I also have a Kasperwing which I have flown for the past several years. I understand Tom Koch and possibly a few others are interested in forming a Falcon owners club. COUNT ME IN! I am proposing a Falcon flyin at our strip this summer and am open to suggestions as to dates and length of time. The only dates not practical are july 9-13 as that is when the yankee ultralight flyin at Sanderson field in New Hampshire is held which I attend each year. This will be the first year I take the falcon to this flyin. Our local grass strip is over 1600 feet long, flat and smooth. It is owned by my uncle and I beieve camping would be allowed with possibly some electrical hookups. Details would naturally be worked out after getting an idea of attendance. Anyone interested in such an event may reach me at, flyaway@linkny.com or at my home phone 607-566-9568 most evenings. We have a beautiful area to fly in with many open farm fields for the occassional forced landing. There are also numerous private grass strips which are ultralight friendly in the area. Hills average 600 ft or so throughout much of the local area with some reaching 900-1000 ft. Keuka lake, one the finger lakes, is a short flight away as well as some smaller lakes. The Glenn Curtiss meuseum is located in Hammondsport about 20 minutes from the airport and The Corning Glass Center is about 30 minutes away. Mt Washington is a well known hang gliding site which is also near hammondsport and is about 900 ft high and the view from launch is spectacular. Mt Washington faces nnwest and is quite steep and soarable in 7mph breezes. I had the Falcon throttled back and cruising the ridge last summer with half a dozen hang gliders below me. A local grass strip sits in the valley below to the right of launch and we often land there. Most of the hills in the area are rolling hills with farms situated on top so there are lots of open fields on top of the hills also. Let me know if interested in the flyin idea so planning can get underway as soon as possible. Heck we don't need a lot of people even a few would be fun! Happy flying! Ralph

VERY nice site. I know nothing about UL's in general and Falcon's in particular, but I saw one last summer out here in rural eastern Iowa (Monticello). It was love at first sight. 8-) I've been licensed (commercial, single & multi plus instrument) for almost 40 years. Still I only have about 1000 hours total time, as I've never used it to make a living. Spent all the money to get the ratings; then computers entered my life and I've been doing that ever since. I've never even had a ride in an UL but I can no longer hold a medical due to anti-depressants I take, so if I'm to ever fly again an UL will be the solution. Based upon what I've read here regarding the way these birds fly, my search for one has just begun!! Once again, super site.... I've already learned valuable info.

My aspirations of becoming a Falcon owner have only recently become obvious to me.Because of this i have hunted down this web page and found MIKE, a very helpful guy with lots of knowledge on the XP, the model i am most interested in. Living in Australia, there is little or no info on the Falcons and this web site has been invaluable to me in helping make some decisions.I would love to here from any XP owners and ,or pilots on any issues re the XP. I can be contacted at my e-mail address .... loneranger@sunet.com.au Best regards, John Stewart

My name is Dale Dafoe and i used to work for the company that started to build the Falcon, American Aircraft, Albuquerque, NM. I worked there for only 90 days during the summer of 1982, but I saw a lot of the early units that were being tested by Brian Allen. Does anyone know where Brian is or what happened to Jack Huffman or Casey Dawe. Let me know!! ddafoe@coachmen.com

Hi, my name is Joe Rutledge and I am looking to purchase a Falcon UL within the next few months! Hope to find one where most of the modifications have already been done. It would great to locate one that has already been recovered and had a 447 installed ( my weight is 240, so you see the need for the larger engine ). I have talked to several Falcon owners who think that the rudders up conversion (like on the XP) is worthwhile as is the nonretractable nosegear and I hope to get a 10 gal tank. I would also like to purchase at the same time a dedicated enclosed trailer to haul it back to IL and then use it to store it in. All modifications negotiable. Cash Buyer - come on people, help me here, if I can't locate one within the next few months ( at least before spring ), I might consider a Mitchel A 10-D and even people I don't know tell me that it is not a GOOD choice for my first UL :) E-mail me at JoeFromIL@webtv.net or call ( 217 ) 374-6183 and let me know what you have. Take care... Joe Rutledge

Calling all Falcon UL and XP owners!! Is there anyone out there in the Falcon community that would be interested in, and has the knowledge and ability to establish an internet discussion forum dedicated to the Falcon? I'm sure we all greatly appreciate the excellent source of information that Falcon east is but wouldn't it be great to combine that with all the knowledge gained by the many Falcon owners and pilots over the years in easilly accessable resource? This would allow us, the owners, pilots, and others interested in these fantastic aircraft to discuss issues and problems and hopefully quickly and easily come up with solutions. Unfortunately I do not have the time or ability to run such a thing myself, however if there is anyone out there who does please feel free to do so. I can be contacted on n.france@xtra.co.nz . Thanks. Neil France, Taupo, New Zealand. Falcon UL.

Hi---Thanks for the very informative and nice looking webpage. I will visit it often. Might consider an XP in my future. I put 2 flights on a UL Falcon back in 84 and found it quite nice and particurlarly fast. Keep up the good work. Still flying UL's in upstate NY.

Your web site is super. It provides great insight into the Falcon. I don't own a plane, but am looking. I presently fly a Drifter on floats that is owned by my friend and instructor. The XP may fill the bill for a land based plane for me. Thanks, Vester Sheeley, Palm City, FL

Hello Falcon fans. I built an American Aircraft Falcon XP in 1986, N218ZG, she was featured in Sport Pilot in March of 1988 as well as their 10 year anniversary issue in 1994. I unfortunately no longer own her but have been working on a simulator version for FS2002/2004 which I am leaving a link to share what she looks like so far. You can view her at: http://www.flightsimnetwork.com/dcforum/DCForumID20/639.html I'll let ya'll know when the completed version is done and ready for download. Zane Gard
