EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: Exhibitors - Floats!

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo a land-based airplane into a seaplane is readily possible for many aircraft types, and two companies who provide the equipment and know-how to make that possible were exhibitors at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016.  Both PK Floats and Wipaire, Inc. produce float equipment (and also skis and other components) for factory-built and experimental aircraft as described by each company.  The company exhibits featured examples of aircraft fitted with floats (with wheels attached for amphibious operations) including the impressively equipped Cessna Caravan.
