1958 AMBROSINI F-7 Rondone The best F7
The F7 - Rondone II° - I-JOHN, absolutely perfect and original Ing. Frati's retractable landing gear aircraft built by SAI-AMBROSINI on 1958 - S/N 08 -, has an all-wood structure covered with plywood panels with 2+1 seats, original leather interior, always hangared.
Standard instruments equipped, with a VHF transceiver IC-A200 and a Transponder King KT 76A, it is a wonderful aircraft to fly, with nice performances and clean maneuverability, very similar to the Falco, combining at the same time lower operative costs.
I-JOHN, on 1990, won the 42nd Giro Aereo Internazionale di Sicilia and two speed races last year.
