A widely used ultralight aircraft is the Ikarus Fox II / C-22. Comco developed the Fox II as the
successor of the popular Ikarus Sherpa ultralight aeroplane. Production of the improved 2-seat Fox II
by Comco Ikarus GmbH in Mengen, Germany, started in 1984. In 1987, the C22 Fox II replaced the Fox II in
production. Over 1000 Fox II / C22 planes were built and the ultralight is exported to almost
every European country, Asia, the Near East and South-America. The Ikarus
C22 was offered for sale in three models: C22 C, C22 CS and Aero. The CS
model has a three-blade propeller, covered engine and a stainless steel
exhaust system. The Comco-Ikarus C 22 CS Aero is the top model in the C 22 series and has a glass-fibre fuselage closed
cockpit-cubicle with doors on both sides, an instrument console, etc. The C 22 C Aero is powered by a
80 hp 4-cylinder-4-stroke liquid-cooled / air-cooled Rotax 912 UL version engine.
In 2001, the Comco-Ikarus C22 Aero c/n 9408-3611 was registered D-MWCB in
Germany. On 12 July 2014, during the 2014 Fly-in, the Comco-Ikarus C22 Aero D-MWCB was seen at Flugplatz Barssel in Germany.
