The FK-Leichtflugzeuge FK-12 is a product of B&F Technik Vertriebs GmbH.

Otto Funk (=FK) designed in 1959 on behalf of Heinkel in Speyer the metal glider Greif 1a (FK1). This was the start of a range of light aircraft developed by the Funk family. Otto Funk started in 1984 with the development of the 1-seat ultralight fibreglass FK6. With this design the UL-market was entered. The break-through on this market was the introduction of the 2-seat FK9 in 1989, a combined design of Otto and his son Peter. To build the FK9 Peter Funk and Dirk Breitkreuz founded in 1990 the company B&F Technik. In 1994 Peter Funk started with the development of an Ultralight biplane that went in production at the end of 1997 as the FK-12 Comet. The FK12 Comet is a fast biplane MLA with a max. speed of 220 km/h.
