Aerocet Floats For Kodiak Approved


Aerocet has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for carbon composite amphibious floats for the Quest Kodiak 100 bush plane. The 6650 floats are leak-proof and all but impervious to salt and contaminated water. “We are very proud of the product our team worked hard to build and excited to watch the floats, combined to the proven Kodiak 100 airframe go out the door and into worldwide fleets,” Aerocet said in a statement. “With extensive structural testing and over 400 flight test hours their light weight and slick forgiving hulls will give pilots the best advantage of flying safely and comfortably.”

The floats incorporate Aerocet’s patented oil-bath wheels front and back that virtually eliminate bearing maintenance. There’s an advisory system and the floats have three weather-tight storage lockers each to expand the aircraft’s already significant load-carrying capability. Aerocet has been building composite floats since 1987 in Priest River, Idaho.
