For outstanding performance and reliability on hard surface runways, grass strips or your favorite lake or river the Wipline 3450 floats give you the best of both worlds.
The Wipline 3450 Float was designed using the latest C.A.D. (Computer Aided Design) technology. The aluminum parts and skins are laser cut and all rivet holes are pre-punched. This means replacement parts are a perfect fit. The main keel has a removable wear strip for ease of maintenance. With this technology we are able to build the 3450 Float to be ultra light and still north-country rugged.
Our Wipline 3450 Floats are also approved on the Cessna 206 with the "Turbine Cessna 206 Mark 2 Conversion" by Soloy Aviation Solutions. Click Here to visit the Soloy website and learn more about this engine upgrade.
