SUPER FLOATS utilize advanced composite materials with KEVLAR™ reinforcements. This results in extremely strong and durable, yet lightweight floats. This system works equally well in both calm or rough water, with observed take-off runs as little as 75 feet for some aircraft.

Models Available

SUPER FLOATS are available in 16 sizes from 500 to 6000 lbs. gross weight, in either straight (no wheels) or amphibious configuration, with your choice of assembled or kit form.

The Kits
The easy-to-assemble kit can be finished in as little as 20 man hours for the straight floats and 50 man hours for the amphibious model. Assembly requires no special tools or complicated jigs, in fact the only "jig" needed is a bench top.

Advantages of SUPER FLOATS
The Kevlar™-reinforced composite construction of SUPER FLOATS provides pilots with some very unique advantages:

  1. No leaking! With no rivets to loosen and leak, and a hull/deck seam that is above the water line, SUPER FLOATS don't require the frequent "pumping out" that is often associated with other floats.
  2. SUPER FLOATS are stronger, and more damage-resistant than many other floats. In the rare event that damage is encountered (i.e. beaching in waves on a rocky shore, or striking a solid object at high speed), repairs are simple and easy with commonly available materials.
  3. Because SUPER FLOATS utilize modern construction methods and materials, they are both stronger and lighter than comparable floats made of aluminum. This allows pilots to get airborne in less distance (remember that small fishing lake?), and with less horsepower needed.
  4. SAFETY -- in addition to the enhanced performance capabilities, strength and weight savings offered by SUPER FLOATS, pilot also enjoy the distinct advantages of a "conventional gear" configuration for the amphibious models. By opting to replace complex nosewheel systems with simpler, lighter, less complex tailwheels (fully steerable), the risk of nose-over in the event of an inadvertent "wheels-down" landing in water is SIGNIFICANTLY reduced. Test flight have been conducted successfully with several different Super Float-equipped airplanes that demonstrated it is possible (although ill-advised) to land in water with the wheels accidentally extended WITHOUT HARM!
