The Falco Flight Test Guide is featured in Peter Garrison's "Technicalities" column in the February 2001 Flying. In it, Peter quotes Falco builder Al Aitken extensively. Pick up a copy, if you don't already have one.

On the Falco Flight Test Guide: "This is a very thorough and thoughtful piece of work that anyone test flying any new airplane, be it a one-off or a popular kit, should read." -- Peter Garrison

On the idea of short runway hops: "You're not much better off crashing from three feet than from 3,000." -- Al Aitken
