New amphibious design by Full-Lotus Floats

Full-Lotus's already versatile aircraft floats for water, snow and ice just jumped to the next level: the newest models are now also equipped for paved runways, gravel, dirt and grass! Designed for pilots who want it all, this new all-season multi-surface amphibious system easily installs to most light aircraft up to 1450 pounds.

Recently unveiled at the annual Sun'n Fun Fly-in (Lakeland, FL), the new floats are ideally suited for LSA-type aircraft. The tough plastic shells resist rocks and other hazards better than any other aircraft float system available; flat bottoms allow operations in just a few inches of water; large wheels easily handle soft fields, and the pressurized air of the multiple “bladders” (air-bags) offers unparalleled shock-absorbing capabilities.

“We have optimized this new design with a unique main wheel system that retracts within the body of the inflated float. This better protects the wheels, keeps landing loads centralized and greatly reduces drag while flying. It also maintains the sleek good looks of the well-known Full-Lotus floats” says Nick Heintz for the manufacturer. 

The new float system is in production now; one of the first aircraft types to be equipped with it is the popular kit-built Kitfox.
