Two of the hardest working people in the lightsport aircraft field have to be Adriel Anderson and his father Tony. It seems whatever show I am covering, the two of them are their demonstrating their entry into the lightsport aircraft category the FK 9 MK IV.

Tony operates two flight training facilities for lightsport and ultralight enthusiasts the land based operation is called Wings of Paradise, and his float plane school is called Ultralight Adventures. The FK 9MK IV is used for training in both schools, as well as the Drifter and several other makes.

The FK 9 MK IV has undergone a number of changes since I did the flight report on it. It now has a shorter wing for better handling in turbulence and cross wing landings. The angle of incidence in the wing has been changed to provide better performance and forward visibility.

At the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo FK 9 MK IV had a new option added, floats. Adriel Anderson has been working with his father from a very young age first learning to fly in his fathers ultralight flight training school in a Quicksilver took some time out from talking to potential customers to talk about the float equipped FK 9 MK IV.

The sleek looking craft features carbon fiber construction in the fuselage and wings. It has a steel safety cage built into the cockpit for pilot protection. The horizontal stabilizer and control surfaces are aluminum covered in fabric.

The plane uses dual stick, rudder, and throttle controls, with manually operated flaps, and trim. It comes standard with a cabin heater. The seats backs are adjustable on the ground to comfortably fit pilots from 5' 4" to well over 6'. There is a storage area directly behind the seats that can hold up to 30 lbs.

The plane has excellent visibility and comes standard with an overhead skylight. It can be flown with the doors on or off for an even better view. The plane has a foldable wing option for ease of storage and transportation.

The plane is powered by either the Rotax 912 or 912 S, with the 912 S 100 HP model recommended for float operation. The FK 9 can now be equipped with the Bowman 1500 series of floats which are manufactured in Wisconsin, and have developed a reputation for their ruggedness in the conventional float plane market.

The floats come with two storage compartments on either float, which can be used to carry another 10 gallons fuel or camping gear etc. The top of the floats are flat and have a non skid surface allowing pilots to safely walk from one end of the float to the other.

For steering on the water the floats are equipped with dual water rudders which are operated via the rudder pedals and are retractable.
