Nothing Compares to the Boss.
The Wipaire Boss Beaver was designed to be an entry-level turbine aircraft to move the piston operator into the turbine class at minimal cost yet providing tremendous revenue-generating capability. To accomplish this, we felt a fuselage stretch and a larger tail would make the conversion too expensive. Wipaire engineers believed if the fuel could be moved forward for balance purposes and the engine could be kept reasonably close to the wing, that the tail would not have to be enlarged. It worked! We ended up with a Turbine powered Boss Beaver, without a long snout and all the fuel contained in the wings where it is safest and best for the aircraft structure.
The Wipaire extended cabin and additional float compartment storage offset the larger cabin volume of the factory built Turbine Beaver. With 650 HP worth of take-off power and the paddle blade Otter prop, the Boss Beaver will break water at full gross in just over 965 feet with amphibious floats. All fuel and turbine engine systems are patterned after the highly successful Cessna Caravan, so transitioning to the next step will be a breeze.
