The Falco is the result of the combination and evolution of several significant components, that Icaro has developed over the last few years. Leading to a glider with extraordinary performance for its class. We have been focusing on the perfect interaction of feedback between pilot and wing. Excellent take off behaviours, absolutely intuitive canopy control and rock solid stability even on full bar insure a safe and reliable feeling from the start.

A new era
We developed a product compass so you can easily see which of our gliders suits you best:
The Falco was designed for all pilots looking for the ultimate flying pleasure and fun in the air, while having a safe and exceptionally well performing wing within the EN classification A. The Falco is certainly one of the best choices for beginner pilots.
Behaviour of the glider during the starting phase.
Behaviour of the glider during the landing phase.
The natural stability of the glider in turbulent air.
Forgiving flight behaviour and resilience in turbulent flight conditions.
The centre and climbing properties in thermals.
The relation of the glide rate to the sink rate.
The maximal speed which can be achieved in accelerated flight.
The easiness of the glider translating the pilots commands.
The information which is passed on from the glider to the pilot.
The weight including risers and lines.
The volume of the glider packed.
The reaction behaviour of the glider when receiving commands from the pilot.
The agility & flexibility of the glider.
The potential energy of the glider which can be realised.
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 behaviour, 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.
The FALCO is available in two colour options.
The Falco is suitable for many pilots - from talented students under tuition, to pilots who are already free flying. It is a real “fun wing” which offers a lot of passive safety, and very good performance which is easy and intuitive to handle.
