Sales of the Falco kit aircraft have soared by more than 76% in the past year, according to supplier Sequoia Aircraft. The Falco, originally designed by Stelio Frati of Italy and first flown in 1955, was re-introduced by Sequoia in 1979 as a kit aircraft. Sequoia attributes the sales increase to the company's use of the Internet to promote the design and to support Falco builders.
