Modern small civil aviation in Germany was in need of intensive development at the end of the 90s, and therefore aircraft manufacturers from B&F Technik Vertrieb gmbh decided to start work on the development of a small two-seater aircraft operated for private purposes.

Initially, it was assumed that the aircraft of the B&F Fk14 Polaris model would be produced by a German aircraft manufacturer as kits for self-assembly, which in essence implied a low price, however, in the end, the aircraft were produced ready for use, and, moreover, the cost of one aircraft, according to for 2014, is only about 80 thousand euros, which is very little, especially given the very promising flight performance of this aircraft.

The B&F Fk14 Polaris made its first flight in May 1999, and a few months later, this aircraft was put into mass production, where it is located to this day. Over a 15-year production cycle, 150 aircraft of this model were built by German aircraft manufacturers, and production continues to this day.

The biggest disadvantage of the B&F Fk14 Polaris aircraft is the ability to take on board only two people - a pilot and one passenger, however, despite this fact, the aircraft remains quite popular and highly demanded. In addition to transporting people, the B&F Fk14 Polaris can also be used for sports and aerobatic stunts, which is facilitated by good handling and high maneuverability.
