April 04, 2017 (PRIEST RIVER, ID) World-leading aerospace design, product development and manufacturing company Aerocet® is pleased to announce that Aerocet®, Inc. today announces it has received FAA approval on their 6750 straight aircraft floats to Technical Standard Order TSO-C27 for Twin Seaplane Floats. The next phase of approval, STC, which would allow the floats to be installed as certified on an aircraft, is also close to completion.
Aerocet® has installed the 6750 straight floats onto a Quest Kodiak 100. Initial float performance results are exceptional and are demonstrating Aerocet®’s signature characteristics of being quick on the step, a large “sweet spot” and are even lighter than expected.
The Aerocet® 6750 model composite straight floats include unique features like strong and lightweight blends of carbon fiber materials that are designed to be tough, lightweight and eliminate the problem of corrosion and leaks inherent with aluminum. Safety is also enhanced by making the top deck flat with anti-skid molded into the float, which eases embarking and disembarking.
Established in 1986, Aerocet® is the world’s premier manufacturer of certified composite aircraft floats. The company’s product line includes straight composite aircraft float models for water only landings, as well as amphibious aircraft floats designed for both land and water landings.
