FK14 Polaris

FK14 Polaris

The FK14 Polaris is a high performance cruiser, allowing the pilot a comfortable but superior flying experience. In addition to its modern design, the Polaris is outstanding not only because of its unique panoramic view, but also by its low fuel consumption. Proven in many competitions and air races - the Polaris is able to beat most of its competitors - no matter if tuned by variable pitch props or retractable landing gears! A large one-piece hood opens the cabin easily with the help of gas springs and permits easy boarding. The canopy is made from a special UV protection plexi and provides a 360°panoramic view. Ergo-nomic and adjustable bucket seats are shaped for long journeys and comfort. The cockpit is designed for a maximum of space and can accommoda-te very tall pilots. A modern, electric fowler flap system allows to extend wing surface for short takeoffs and landings up to 20%. This makes cruising speeds of up to 250 km/h possible as well as take offs from shorter runways. Vortex generators at the wingtips do improve control efficiency at low speeds.
