The all new Wipline 1450 float is designed for use on Light Sport Aircraft and other small aircraft. The landing gear incorporates rotating joints for long life and low maintenance, while extra buoyancy ensures stable water operations, the company says. The amphibious floats have an expected weight of 210 to 225 pounds including rigging. The Wipline 1450 will be available in both amphibious and seaplane versions.
All amphibious floats include a landing gear advisory system. The float paint option includes a base coat of white or silver grey submersion paint and custom base coats and stripes per quote.
The introductory price on the amphibious floats is $30,000, and the seaplane version is $23,000. Installation cost is TBD.
