Designed by Karlis Irbitis (hence 'I') this two seat sports and touring aeroplane first flew on the 26th June 1937. It went on a European sales tour and took part in competitions such as the Thanet Air Race where it came fifth and was awarded first prize for the best turned out aircraft. Rollasons were apointed British agents but it would appear that no sales took place. Twelve machines were produced in total with some serving with the Latvian Air Force.
