One aircraft had ailerons on the top wing only; the other had ailerons at all four wingtips. Airframe 6307/18 was tested to destruction at Adlershof over the period 13th to 18th June 1918. Engine, 200 h.p. Benz IV. Weights: Empty, 980 kg. (2.156 lb.). Loaded, 1,340 kg. (2,948 lb.). Speed, 160 km.hr. (100 m.p.h.). Ceiling, 4,500 m. (14.760 ft.).

The Aviatik, Type C IX
  In 1918 a somewhat different type, the C IX, was produced. This had a 200 h.p. Benz engine, and the radiator was placed in the nose of the fuselage, motor car fashion. The lower plane, which was of smaller chord than the top one, ran underneath the fuselage, much after the manner of the Bristol Fighter, which may quite possibly have inspired the Aviatik designer to adopt this feature. The fin and tail planes, three-ply covered, "grow" out of the body, while the rudder is fabric covered. There is a small fin underneath the fuselage, containing the tail skid.

The Aviatik CIX entered tests in the first part of 1918. Powered by a 200hp Benz IV the aircraft had a top speed of 100mph (160kph) and a ceiling of 14,760ft (4.500m) - quite inadequate for the period.

An Aviatik CIX Biplane of late 1918 design. Evidently an attempt to use the characteristics of the "Bristol Fighter." (200 h.p. Benz IV engine). Two built.
