Wipline® 6100 Floats


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.
