Whether you use your Beaver for work or play Wipaire can help you get the best performance, and the most enjoyment, during your flight time.
If you’ve been dreaming of flying your Beaver right to the lake then take a look at the Wipline 6100 Float. Amphibious or straight models are available for the MKI.
Maybe your Beaver has seen better days. With a full service Refinishing and Interiors department we can get her looking good as new. While she’s here our Maintenance team will get her running at the top of her game and with an Avionics upgrade you’ll be enjoying your air time even more!
Wipline Floats are known for both performance and durability and with almost 60 years in the business you can buy with confidence knowing that we’ll still be here to support our products for years to come.
For outstanding performance and reliability at major international airports or in bush country, Wipaire presents the Wipline 6100 Float.
The 6100 Floats are true workhorses – yet minimal maintenance is required for years of dependable service. The floats are designed to allow full use of the new high-gross kits currently offered for the Mark I and Mark III Beaver and the Pilatus Turbo Porter. They provide similar takeoff performance to other floats, yet due to the unique aerodynamic design, they provide increased cruise speeds.
Construction of Wipline 6100 Floats follow Wipline’s performance-proven and patented formula. The float bottoms are specially fluted and angled, providing rough-water stability and heavy-weight takeoff performance. The float tops are flat for safe boarding of crew and passengers.
