Wipaire is most often known as being the leading designer and manufacturer of Wipline floats. In reality, Wipaire has been engineering and building the highest performing and most popular aircraft modifications since 1960.
The Wipaire Single Point Fueling System is now approved for the Quest KODIAK. The system can be installed on the aircraft in either landplane or seaplane configuration. The Wipaire Single Point Fueling System enables the aircraft to be filled from the ground, eliminating the need for ladders and enabling the Quest KODIAK to be fueled more safely and expeditiously. In aircraft equipped with a TKS anti-ice system, the risk of damage resulting from over the wing fueling is eliminated. Wipaire's electronic monitoring ensures that the aircraft is reliably topped-off and an all new digital display with touch screen controls ensures an easy interface for the user.
The Wipaire Single Point G-2 refueling system offers convenience and safety and is fully compatible with the G1000 avionics suite in new Quest Kodiak aircraft. The system features a modern touch screen display. Fuel quantity is displayed on the screen and all desired fuel entries are accomplished using the touch screen. The controller is conveniently located in the step area of the baggage compartment near the aft left hand door. The refueling adaptor is located just aft of the left hand aft door. Another benefit of this system is that the aircraft can be fueled without the Aircraft Master Switch being in the "ON" position. The refueling controller switch, when activated, powers the refueling system without aircraft power being on.
To compensate for any lag in the fuel quantity system the controller reduces flow to the tank ten (10) gallons before the desired fuel quantity and closes the refueling valve two (2) gallons before the desired fuel level is achieved. The fuel quantity will continue to rise a little after valve closure but the resulting quantity will be plus or minus 1-2 gallons of the set value.
