Aircraft Sequoia Falco has a compact design and is intended solely for private use, and, the very aircraft is positioned as a light sport airplane, but, despite this fact, the plane is widely used for the transport of persons on the routes of small extent.

Due to the fact that the aircraft design has good aerodynamic shape, and has a very good compactness of its size, is a highly maneuverable aircraft, which in turn allows you to perform flights at high speeds, and the relative safety of persons on board. Moreover, the aircraft model Sequoia Falco and can also be operated to perform aerobatic stunts, which largely contributes to the high strength of the wing structure to withstand a variety of high congestion.

The cabin Sequoia Falco aircraft can accommodate up to two people - a pilot and a passenger, and, for a very long plane air travel it is also suitable as the maximum range of its repetition is, depending on the version, up to 1400 kilometers. Nevertheless, it is important to clarify the fact that due to the design features, the aircraft can not be used for their transport on board of various kinds of goods, to the same setting used herein, also prevents the aircraft load.

Initially Sequoia Falco aircraft was manufactured as already fully ready aircraft, but later, the aircraft was fitted under the self-assembly of the future owner, which in turn reduced the cost of the aircraft, and provided a high popularity.

Depending on the modification, as the power plant on Sequoia Falco aircraft piston aircraft engines used for power of 135 hp to 160 hp, which in turn has a direct impact on a number of flight characteristics, including speed, altitude flight, the maximum load capacity, etc. Basic production version of the airplane is equipped with Lycoming aircraft engine capacity of 135 hp, which allows the aircraft to accelerate to maximum speed in 320 km \ h.

Issue aircraft Sequoia Falco was conducted in the following variants:
