Fk6 1985 / Otto Funk
In 1984 Otto Funk first began to occupy himself with the ultra-light aircraft that were beginning to make an appearance at this time. The extreme weight limits meant that only the simplest of single-seaters or motorized microlight craft could be classified in this category.
The FK6 was an attempt to build a lightweight construction using the newest technology for the design of a typically conventional aircraft that would nevertheless comply with the requirements of this weight class.
FK6 lived up to this task most successfully, a fact that was repeatedly demonstrated in international comparison. For several years, this ultralight plane remained unique in its class due to its state-of–the–art design in regard to technology and flight performance! Three prototypes of this plane were built.
It was in this year too, that Peter Funk, Otto Funk's son, first came into contact with light aircraft construction. Formerly a glider pilot himself, he was able to make a considerable contribution to the design and test flights of the FK6.
