Brazilian Approval for Wipline 8750 Floats on 208B
South Saint Paul, Minnesota, January 21, 2014 – Wipaire, Inc. is pleased to announce that Brazilian approval has been granted for Wipline 8750 floats on the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan and the new Grand Caravan EX. Wipaire received Brazilian validation of the Cessna Caravan on Wipline 8750 floats in September of 2012. Wipline 8750 floats are compatible with an aftermarket gross weight increase to 9,062 pounds for the Cessna Grand Caravan and Grand Caravan EX. The floats include a gross weight increase to 8,750 pounds for the Cessna Caravan. With no landing weight limitations on water or land, Wipline 8750 floats are well-suited to short-haul operations. Newly engineered designs include an improved main gear retraction mechanism, an improved oleo design, and a new hull shape.
Wipaire’s single-point fuel modification is also approved in Brazil for the Cessna Caravan, Grand Caravan, Grand Caravan EX, and Quest KODIAK.
