LIPNUR developed and manufactured the Super Kunang - also known as the Super Kunang 35 - in the 1960s. Powered by a Volkswagen air-cooled engine and seating only one person, it was used as a light sports plane.
Kunang-Kunang means 'Firefly' in Indonesian.
The prototype Super Kunang I (X-05) first flew on 25 October 1963. In production, it was known as the Super Kunang 35.
Both it and a 2-seat variant (see below) were exhibited at the National Research Exhibition in Jakarta (1-13 July 1965).
A two-seat prototype, the Super Kunang II (X-07), was flown on 15 January 1965 but doesn't seem to have gone into production.
