Mission Statement

The Foundation has three Falkes. Two are the latest SF25C variant with a 100hp Rotax 913S engine whilst the third is an older Falke 2000 with a 65 hp VW based Lombach engine.These motor gliders are now in use at Cambridge, Bicester and Dunstable

        

G-FLKS at Dunstable where she is currently based.

        

The roomy congenial cockpit of the Rotax Falke, with its side by side seating, is ideal for flying youngsters.

        
A modern cockpit and instrument panel provides an excellent introduction to operating a powered aircraft.

The Rotax Falke handles in a very similar manner to a 2 seat sailplane providing a seamless transition for youngsters from the one type to the other
