Development of the aircraft B & F Fk12 Comet, also known as FK-Lightplanes FK-12 Comet, was associated with the need to create a small two-seater sports aircraft, capable of air travel at high speeds, but at short distances. Initially, the German aviation specialists supposed to create a low-wing aircraft, however, ultimately they settled on the biplane design - its more aerodynamic forms could not only provide high speed of movement, but also, in fact, made it possible to withstand high both positive and negative overloads.

Experts do not rule out that is not the last word in the popularity of the aircraft B & F Fk12 Comet played and design that meets most modern requirements, and at the same time is quite practical in terms of technology in the creation of aircraft.

Plane B & F Fk12 Comet has a small size - its length is only 5,54 meters in span in 6,74 meters, which in turn reduces drag in flight and increases the maneuverability of the aircraft, which is quite typical for the type of aircraft sports.

On board the B & F Fk12 Comet can accommodate only two people, but, in fact, it did not play on the popularity of the aircraft - for the period from 1997 on 2011 year, was built 102 aircraft of this model that constrained the performance properties, shows a sufficiently high his interest for customers. In addition, due to the design features of the aircraft, transport it to any goods is not possible that in turn is one of the negative aspects of this model.

Powerplant biplane B & F Fk12 Comet represented by one four-cylinder piston aircraft engine Rotax 912 ULS, able to develop traction in 100 hp, which is enough for a bit of sport aircraft type. However, the maximum flight speed of the aircraft is about 215 km \ h., With high maneuverability that meets most requirements.

Due to the limited maximum distance route, and flight range of the aircraft is only 650 kilometers, the aircraft is practically not used for passenger traffic, although in the initial stages of the design of the aircraft, the opportunity provided for aeronautical engineer from the aircraft company «B & F Technik Vertriebs gmbh».
