    Mounting hardware designed and tested to FAR requirements

Main Gear

Custom Designed Gearbox

  • Minimizes displacement for improved floatation.
  • Watertight seamless design means less water pumping.
  • Easy access to all hardware, reducing maintenance time.
  • Easy-to-clean and service, ease of replacements.

Oleo Shock System

  • Trailing arm link provides a no-bounce smooth ride.
  • Metering pin tailored toward comfort during taxi, yet able to handle harsh landings.
  • Pressure adjustable to match aircraft gross weight.
  • Built in prevention of water infusion.
  • Cost effective, easy to find and replace “off-the-shelf” seals and wiper rings.
  • Aerocet®-manufactured nose wheel means Aerocet® quality, and we always have parts in stock.

Nose Gear

Sliding, Retractable Gear

  • Utilizes a no-maintenance composite spring that eliminates soft forward diving in crosswinds or under braking.
  • No nose wheel well, which provides maximum displacement efficiency.
  • Aluminum bronze slide bushings designed to handle ultimate loads without breakage.
  • Tire retracts to provide bumper.
  • Angle of nose spring is optimized to reduce shimmy potential.

Nose Wheel Assembly

  • Aerocet®-manufactured nose wheel means Aerocet® quality, and we always have parts in stock.
  • Spoked wheel design eliminates water cavity.
  • O-ring interface between wheel halves for better sealing and less maintenance.
  • Standard “off-the-shelf” bearings.
  • Manufactured from 6061 billet, anodized and top coated for long life corrosion protection.
  • Fully TSO approved by the FAA.

Composites

Performance

  • Super large sweet spot, ease of use and the most forgiving floats for novice and pro alike.
  • Very slippery – minimal sensation of acceleration is felt after leaving the water.
  • Getting on the step is reached very quickly to get you off the water and into the air fast.

Hull Design

  • Double fluted design delivers superior strength to weight ratings.
  • Molded – in boarding steps.
  • Sharp edges for reduced drag and increased hydrodynamics.
  • Large flat deck with molded – in antiskid.
  • Best design for performance in both rough water and smooth water conditions.

Construction

  • No corrosion.
  • No rivets mean no rivet leaks.
  • Common aerospace carbon fiber and simple easy – to – use vinyl ester resin.
  • Non – sandwich bottom skin, makes any field repair an easy process.
  • High impact sandwich core used on top and sides adds durability and strength.

Compartments

  • Nine Watertight Compartments
  • No large holes for rudder controls, which could cause easy flooding.
  • Large access panels with integrated preflight pumpouts that use all stainless hardware.
  • Six storage lockers, four forward two stern, with super large access doors and optional floorboards for flat storage.

6750 Straight Floats

Aerocet® Model 6750 Amphibious Floats

Aerocet® 6750 series floats offer unmatched performance in the straight float category. Our 6750’s are both structurally and hydrodynamically advanced, and with a rivet free construction, we continue to be the best looking.

Take a look at the composite construction that defines our floats as the strongest, lightest, and best looking. Our hardware assures you of the strongest fit and easiest installation.

Composites

Performance Composites

  • By far the most technically advanced floats in the history of aviation
  • Proven to be the most useful load in the industry.
  • Infusion composite construction process allows these larger floats to weigh in at less than smaller floats that have less displacement.
  • Extra flotation and no extra weight or speed penalty, for increased safety at gross weight.
  • Clean floats and aerodynamic rigging gives a cruise speed increase over other designs.
  • The most forgiving floats for novice and pro alike.
  • Very slippery – minimal sensation of acceleration is felt after leaving the water.
  • Getting on the step is reached very quickly to get you off the water and into the air fast.

Smart Design

  • Double-fluted design delivers superior strength to weight ratings.
  • Molded-in boarding steps.
  • Sharp edges for reduced drag and increased hydrodynamics.
  • Best design for performance in both rough water and smooth water conditions.

Built to Last

  • No corrosion like with aluminum based floats.
  • No rivets, means no rivet leaks.
  • Common aerospace carbon fiber and simple easy-to-use vinyl ester resin.
  • Non-sandwich bottom skin, makes any field repair an easy process.
  • High impact sandwich core used on top and sides adds durability and strength

Compartments

  • Nine watertight compartments and three locker bays in each float for more storage.
  • Large access panels with integrated preflight pump-outs that use all stainless hardware.
  • Optional internal floorboards for flat storage.

Hardware

  • Stout attach fittings for “up gross” strength
  • A mechanics delight for installation, a simple and complete kit
  • All fittings swaged to fit
  • Extensive use of anticorrosive 300 stainless steel throughout
  • Best Cabin Entry and Fueling Step layout-looks good, works great

Hull Protection
