Fk3 1968 / Otto Funk
The third design named FK 3 first took flight in April 1968 in Speyer. This open class glider already sported laminar profile wings with cruise flaps. It too was built entirely of metal and, with a wingspan of nearly 18m, was a peak performer in comparison to the wooden aircraft of that time.
The high aspect ratio wings and the modern tapered fuselage were to leave their stamp on the design of modern gliders up to the very present.
Due to the widespread success this aircraft enjoyed on its appearance at diverse championships, it was decided to put a small series of eleven machines into production on the former premises of the VFW-Fokker plants in Speyer.
