The Motorglider Scheibe SF25C

  Associated Image The Scheibe SF-25 Falke is a German tourism glider developed from the former Bergfalke glider of Scheibe Flugzeugbau. Since May 2006, the company is managed by Scheibe Aircraft GmbH. The company had produced the Motor Spatz but had decided to produce a better light aircraft based on the Bergfalke glider. It had a new front fuselage with a closed cockpit with two seats side by side and, originally, a Hirth F10A2a engine in the nose. It flew for the first time in May 1963 under the name SF-25a Motor Falke. After a first batch of planes, the wing was lowered and renamed SF-25B Falke. A number of variants were built with different engines and the type was built under license by Sportavia-Putzer, Aeronautica Umbra (Italy), Loravia (France) and Slingsby (United Kingdom). The current model is the SF 25c Falke 2000:60 KW (80 hp) Limbach 2000 EA, driving the propeller at 3 450 rpm (approximately 512 falkes with Limbach engine built in 1998);
