Wipline 7000 Floats Receive STC
Wipaire, Inc. has received Supplemental Type Certification of their Wipline 7000 Amphibious Float installed on the Quest Kodiak. The Wipline 7000 Float has been in full production since December when it received TSOA and initial deliveries to customers are expected to begin late this week.
The Wipline 7000 floats are the latest addition to Wipaire’s Wipline family of products. The hulls are modeled after the successful Wipline 13000 Floats, which have improved rough water handling qualities for float-equipped aircraft. They also include the traditional Wipline flat top deck for easy loading and safety. The main gear system has been completely redesigned, which improves reliability and makes for easy maintenance."These features along with several other enhancements make the Wipline 7000 the most advanced float we have ever produced," said Rich Adler, Manager of Engineering and Certification. "We are very pleased with the overall performance of the float."
