THE F2

THE FUTURE OF FLIGHT

Slider
 
The F2 is the newest aircraft from Flight Design general aviation. One we think will define light aircraft safety, performance, and comfort in a CS-23 certified aircraft, as an S-LSA and also as a 600 Kg Ultralight. The F2 brings a fresh look at high-wing light aircraft design with class-leading safety features and an innovative Garmin avionic suite. Our mission has been to design the F2 for the demands of professional flight schools and flying clubs as well as private owners who want an easy to fly aircraft with efficiency and cruise performance for true cross-country adventures. Basic model price: €143.300
 
Flight Design general aviation has created an international team of light aircraft industry specialists and designers to collaborate on the F2. The structure of the F2 is manufactured to close tolerances in pre-impregnated carbon fiber for great structural strength and lightweight. The advanced features of the F2 will make all your flights safer and more enjoyable but also a better environment for learning how to fly. A modern aircraft should have all the features seeking to improve performance, situational awareness, and reduce the pilot workload.

DESIGN

EXTERIOR

The F2 is the next generation of Flight Design and you can see it in the advanced aerodynamic features and graceful exterior.  The smooth CFD optimized airframe reduces drag. The high aspect ratio wings give improved performance at all speeds and are equipped with modern sculpted winglets. The F2 meets the stringent ASTM 3180 requirements for Stall and Spin resistance due to the specially shaped outer wing and refined control system.

INTERIOR

The spacious cabin of the F2 has been designed for extra rigidity and incorporates a combination of dynamically tested passenger seats, panel-mounted AMSAFE ™ airbags, and an Airframe Emergency Parachute System (AEPS) for your safety.  The atmosphere inside the F2 is improved with many clever design features, the modern heating/fresh air system, and comfortable leather-covered, electrically-adjustable seating. The combination of the large doors that are very long with no wing struts and low entry sills, makes taking your seat very easy. The console is designed so all controls are easily reached. The F2 allows up to 40 kg (88 lbs.) of baggage to be safely stored in the giant storage space aft of the cabin area. Four large cabin windows give the cockpit an open feeling and improve overall visibility. If you are looking for an airplane that fits you and your lifestyle, try the F2. We think you will be pleasantly surprised!

As a modern and advanced light aircraft, the F2 uses propulsion systems that match the efficient concept of the airframe, the Rotax 912iS and Turbocharged 915iS.
Both engines offer a high level of sophistication, redundancy and efficiency. With the Flight Design ‘Smart Start’ and CFD designed split flow cooling systems,
the F2 starts easily and keeps it cool even in the hottest climates. Oil and Coolant thermostats complete the temperature management and all systems
are easily accessible under the quick-to-remove cowling.

The New F2 comes with two of the most advanced engines for light aviation:

F2 912IS FUEL INJECTED

The 912iS features precisely controlled fuelair mixture for ultra-smooth power delivery, improved high altitude performance, more useful torque and improved fuel economy.
  • 100–hp Rotax 912iS with fuel injection
  • 1352 c.c. 10.5 : 1 compression ratio
  • Gearbox: 2.43 : 1 reduction ratio
  • Fuel: Both engines use premium unleaded auto fuel or 100 LL Avgas

F2 915IS TURBO FUEL INJECTED

The 915iS is a new turbocharged engine from Rotax that matches the fuel injection of the 912iS to a powerful turbocharger and intercooler.
Wherever you fly, the Flight Design F2 has the engine power choice best suited to your exact requirements.
  • 141-hp Rotax 915iS turbo with fuel injection
