Amphibious Floats Being Tested on REMOS GX-F

Tampa, FL – REMOS Aircraft, the world’s leader in LSA, introduced its GX-F amphibious float concept at AirVenture in July and began flight testing in September. The company expects to complete the float installation approval and begin taking orders in the Spring of 2010.

REMOS is developing both amphibious and straight float configurations. In both cases the floats are made of composite laminate materials, featuring Kevlar keels along with aluminum and stainless fittings. REMOS will increase the gross weight of the aircraft to 1450 lbs, providing an approximate 500 lb useful load, and will comply with ASTM standards for Light Sport Aircraft certification.

“The REMOS GX Floatplane will set a new standard in recreational flying,” said Kenneth Weaver, VP of Marketing for REMOS. “Based on the reaction to the floats at AirVenture and the inquiries since then, there will be a lot more people enjoying float flying in the next year. The goal has been to produce a floatplane that is highly maneuverable, rugged, easy to maintain and which opens up thousands of remote landing areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. Rivers, ponds and lakes take on a new meaning when you have a REMOS.”

REMOS has determined that the amphibious and straight float will easily retrofit existing GX aircraft.
