    I got an email today that Chris Falconar has passed at the age of 91 :(

    It sounds like his son and business partner are going to keep Falconar Avia limping along in the interim while they find a buyer.

    Group,
    Falconar Avia is for sale. The current principles are just looking to move the assets to someone that wanted to take over and support the designs. I would love to, but I'm not financially able to solely, and it's not really in my business partners' wheelhouse. I think almost any somewhat reasonable offer would be accepted.

    FYI
