The Flanders F.2 was a 1910s British experimental single-seat monoplane aircraft designed and built by Howard Flanders and later converted to a two-seater as the Flanders F.3. Howard Flanders had been an assistant to A.V.Roe when he decided to design his own aircraft. In 1910 he could not get an appropriate engine for it. He started again on another monoplane design, the Flanders F.2 powered by a 60 hp (45 kW) Green engine. The F.2 was a single-seat shoulder-wing monoplane. The wing as usual for the period was braced by wires and kingposts. It had a fixed tailskid landing gear with bicycle-type wheels and a central skid projecting forward from between the wheels. The central skid was to stop the aircraft nosing over on rough ground. It flew for the first time on 8 August 1911.
