C42 - the bestseller, meanwhile more than 650 airplanes delivered worldwide -the bestselling ultralight aircraft in Germany

Maximum fun of flying at a reasonable ratio between price and performance. An innovative, modern two-seater micro-light aircraft sets the standards. The classic advantages of the ultralight and the standard aircraft categories are combined to produce a fascinating, technically matured machine. The IKARUS C 42 is thus able to fulfil expectations which were incompatible in the past: Standard aircraft comfort for the price of an ultralight. Convincing flight characteristics, safe handling and minimal parking space needed because of wings easy to remove. The C42-B will also convince you. Try it out.
