     A-22 Valor

A-22 Valor Place Mouse Over Images to Enlarge
The "Valor" is superbly maneuverable and truly FUN - it will turn on a dime in the air or on the ground. It's very light on the nose-wheel, enabling it to land and take off like a tail-dragger - without all the fancy footwork! Cross-wind capability is quite high. Cruise speed is a genuine 85-90kts, (a true 100 + mph aircraft), with a top cruise speed of 106kts / 122 MPH, and a VNe of 120Kts/ 137 MPH. When you experience the space inside, you'll realize just how cramped the competitors aircraft truly are. The view out of the A22 Valor makes even a helicopter seem claustrophobic and works well for photography as the doors can easily be removed which makes for spectacular photos! Fly with Valor in a Valor!

  • All metal anodized aluminum riveted airframe with Metal Topped wings! ‘Ceconiote’ doped fabric covered control surfaces and part wing. Cowls and wingtips are composite. All fabric is UV-proofed when sealed and painted, giving a projected 20-year life.
  • A N Hardware: Aircraft grade bolts! Easy for repair and familiar to A & P’s world over. Stronger than most LSA aircraft of today.
  • Inertial Reel Seatbelts Made especial for FPNA by Aero-Tuff Seatbelt company, our seat belts are a 4 point, flap release inertial reel Seatbelt for the highest level of SAFETY.
  • Rotax 912ULS (100hp) 4-stroke, liquid cooled power. (912ULS 100 HP Optional) These engines have achieved an enviable reputation for reliability, with a 1,500 time-before-overhaul – about 10-15 years for the average flyer!
  • A spacious and comfortable cockpit - 128cm (50+ inches) wide, 2-seats side-by-side and ADJUSTABLE. Doors are glazed down to the floor, giving a truly 'helicopter-like' view out! Glazed panels behind the cockpit give an almost 360 degree view.
  • Stall speed with flap is a genuine 27kts - as tested by both the PFA in the UK and the DAeC in Germany. Stall characteristics are completely safe - no tendency at all for wing-drop. This means you can safely cruise at 40-45kts close to the ground without worrying about ‘tucking’ under.
  • Dual controls – Dual control Yokes (standard) or single handled centre stick (optional ‘Y’ double handle), hydraulic brakes, dual rudder pedals and throttles, flap lever centrally placed in the roof.
  • Full span ailerons with 10 and 20 degree 'droop' positions, for ultra-short take offs and even shorter landings.
  • High-lift aerofoil section with forward swept wings to give excellent stall and slow speed handling characteristics.
  • Wide tires on wide undercarriage are good for rough and/or soft strips. Centre of gravity is close to the main wheels, so the nose can be kept clear of the ground very easily - there's even a small tail wheel!
  • Finally, the FPNA A22 Valor is BIG FUN to fly - the view out is unbeatable (unless you buy a helicopter!), it turns on a cent both in the air and on the ground, take-off is breathtaking and the good cruise speed means you can take it places. The Very Short Take Off and Landing, (VSTOL) and relaxed flying characteristics of the A22 Valor make it the right alternative for pilots moving on from rag & tube ultra-light aircraft but who still wish to carry on using their small airstrips with confidence. This aircraft will also surprise and delight pilots switching to the Sport/Recreational aircraft category from a more ‘formal’ background in GA aircraft.
There are approx. 300 A22s are currently flying - in the USA, Canada, Germany, UK, France, Spain, Italy, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates and several other countries, including Australia.
