Hi Hesham  :)
Thank you for the very interesting list!
Some additional info on the Type IX that may be of interest. Type IX was built as cabin monoplane and first registered (to Mr. Van Lith) on 30.12.1986. Orignal (test) registration F-WYSZ was soon changed to F-PYSZ. The registration was cancelled on 29.6.1990 after the aircraft had been damaged in an accident.
She was rebuilt by Mr. Richard Monmoulinex as Type IXBIS and became a parasol sing type (see photo). First registered on 6.9.1994 (to Mr. Monmoulinex). The registration was cancelled on 4.8.2008 when she was transferred to the Ultralight category.
