Pilot Officer František Běhal was a Czech airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

Běhal was born on 18 March 1912, in Želátovice. After the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, Běhal served with Groupe de Chasse III/3 of the French Air Force during the Battle of France. He was credited with two victories against the Luftwaffe.

When France, too, collapsed, Běhal joined the Royal Air Force, serving with 1 Squadron. He claimed an additional "kill" on the night of his death. He died on 11 May 1941 when his Hawker Hurricane was lost during a German air raid.

He is buried in Whyteleafe (St. Luke) Churchyard, Surrey.
