The Farman F.80 was a 1920s French biplane designed by Farman as a basic trainer. Only two were built.

Development

The F.80 was intended to compete against the Hanriot HD-14 as a basic trainer. It was an equal span two-bay tractor biplane with tandem open cockpits for instructor and pupil. It had a tailskid landing gear with the two main units were widely spaced for stability on the ground. The aircraft also has a pair of auxiliary wheel in front to prevent that aircraft nosing-over on the ground and damaging what was then an expensive wooden propeller.

The aircraft did not meet with any success and was not ordered into production.
