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 and as an S-LSA. The F2 brings a fresh look at high-wing light aircraft design with class leading safety features and an innovative Garmin avionic suite.
The spacious ‘extra-large’ 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 adjustable seats.
The structure of the F2 is manufactured to close tolerances in pre-impregnated carbon fiber for great structural strength and light weight. Flight Design general aviation has created an international team of light aircraft industry specialists and designers to collaborate on the F2. 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.
The F2 was designed specifically for CS-23 certification and to meet the ASTM F3180 low-speed flight characteristics of fixed-wing aircraft standard for departure characteristics, spinning, and stall warning. Sculpted winglets reduce induced drag, improve climb and cruising range. The smooth cantilever strutless wing also reduces drag and allows maximum visibility from the cockpit. The highly optimized airfoil of the F2 allows generous internal volume for the fuel tanks and is also structurally efficient.
The elegantly sculptured Carbon Fiber fuselage of the F2 is designed for extra-large volume in the cabin and to reduce drag while providing cleaner airflow to the tail. The large span stabilizer and separate elevator has been designed for optimum low speed control and better feel. In total, the aerodynamic features have significantly improved the F2′ stability, control and its overall ease of flying. While the top speed of the unlimited F2 will be impressively high, the F2 flies with efficiency and low fuel consumption at all speeds. CFD based virtual wind tunnel design tools were used to complete the efficient and refined aerodynamic design.
The 1.3 m (51″) Extra Large cabin width of the F2 has been designed to fit very tall and smaller people equally well. People with heights of 1.55 to 2.00 m (5′ 1″ to 6′ 6″) will sit more comfortably than ever. Ample storage space in the cockpit is provided by great access for bulky items stored aft of the cockpit. Four cabin windows and the sunroof in the rear give the cockpit an open feeling and improve overall visibility.
Large gull–wing doors held up by gas struts make entering and taking your seat easy. Three–point latches and door seals keep you secure inside. Comfortable leather covered seats with Confor-foam padding and 2-way adjustment offer incomparable comfort and easy adjustment in height and leg length. From these seats, the remarkable visibility of F2 will give you the feeling that you are in a helicopter with a sweeping view of the world. The well-engineered engine installation reduces airframe vibration and cabin noise.
Full dual controls and centrally located single lever throttle/brake quadrant are features of this ergonomically arranged cockpit. Easy-to-reach storage spaces and convenient map holders are thoughtfully provided. Modern ventilation and heat exchanger heating allow you to fly comfortably in all 4 seasons. The F2 allows up to 50 kg (110 lb) of baggage (total) to be safely stored in the giant storage area aft of the cabin area.
