Falco: A new era within the EN-A Segment

THE CHARACTERISTICS

The Falco is equipped with very modern design features such as Shark-Nose and only 2 main lines per line level. In combination with a light material mix, the glider takes off perfectly in all kinds of conditions. A well balanced mixture between aspect ratio and canopy curve ensures a smooth and very damped ride through turbulences. Equipped with the additional Leading-Edge Mini-Ribs, the Falco shines when you push on the speed bar. The excellent glide ratio is outstanding within its class. The most important criteria though, is the handling, which has been tweaked to perfection during numerous development stages. Despite very dampened roll and pitch behavior, we still managed to achieve precise handling, allowing for a tight and flat turning. The brake pressure progressively increases for optimized thermal flying.
Regardless if you are a beginner or pilot of many years experience, the Falco provides the best of both worlds, pleasure in flight and highest safety standards.

Like all Icaro paragliders, the design of the FALCO also features a distinctive part of the Icaro Edelweiss logo – chosen to match the special glider characteristics and your wish to leave a lasting impression on other pilots and spectators.
