FALCO 3000XL Agricultural Aircraft set to improve productivity, crew comfort, and safety.

Flight Structures, working with Farmers Air Ltd, have designed and approved a major modification to the PAL 750XL airframe, christened the FALCO 3000XL. The main design features are a lightweight 3000 litre carbon fibre hopper, 2000 kg payload and a new streamlined light weight cowling with improved air filtration.

The FALCO 3000XL builds upon the proven ability of the Pacific Aerospace aircraft, including the Fletcher, Cresco, and 750XL to offer a replacement aircraft for those no longer in production. The 750XL cockpit has been further improved and offers excellent leg room, a quieter environment and better ergonomics for a less fatigued pilot.

The aircraft also features a large hopper lid to minimise spillage, Agricultural GPS and GPS Tracking equipment, and a substantially revised fuselage structure which integrates the hopper as load bearing structure.
