  • F-22A Project

    Hello Everyone,

    I am looking at acquiring an F-22A project, but I am a little hesitant to dive in without much knowledge of that particular model. I have helped with a BC-12D restoration, and there seems to be loads of information about those, but I know the F-22A is a different cat with the flaps, nose gear, and larger tanks. Does anyone know a good source for technical info on the F-22A? I have been unsuccessful so far at finding any good information. Not too surprising since they only made a small number of them. Any help would be appreciated!

    When and if you get good info on the F series please open a thread on it. I don't have a later model but am interested in them and how they differ. Always want to know more about Taylorcrafts and am terribly ignorant about the planes from the Ferris era.

      Hello LycomingO360, and welcome! Most of us here use first names.

      There used to be an F22 (tailwheel) at my airfield in the UK. I got a few hours in it, and to be brief, it was not very good. (The F22A was designed as a contender for the C152...Cessna had a lot more money for marketing and design!)

      It was flown across the Atlantic with the nosewheel F22A, the type to which you refer, and that is still around here, as I believe. To be honest, don't bother. Get an F19 or a BC12-D, and learn to master the tailwheel!

        If this F-22A project has the wings uncovered I would love to see a picture of the wing tanks and how they are installed into the wing.

          The wing tanks were always an issue
