Full Lotus Floats
Since its introduction in 1985, the Full Lotus float has become the world’s best selling float system. First available in a 1220 lb. (555 kg) displacement only, the Full Lotus float is now available in six sizes through 2600 lb. (1182 kg).

Lightweight, extremely tough and shock absorbing, the Full Lotus float has proven itself as the preferred choice for pilots who want to have the ability to operate their aircraft without the preoccupation of damaging their float. Full Lotus floats can bump most submerged objects at taxiing speed without damage. They can be beached on rocky shores without worry. Their shock absorbing characteristics are legendary. At least six lives have been saved in air crashes because of the ability of the Full Lotus float to fully absorb the impact energy.

Features

  • Each Full Lotus float has eight independent compartments housing individual bladders. Repairs, if necessary, are easy since the bladder is readily removed.
  • Each Full Lotus float from the model FL 1220 two float system has 1220 lbs (555 kg.) buoyancy producing floatation to spare.
  • Full Lotus floats are better than skis. The large footprint of the Full Lotus floats allows you to land safely on the softest snow. The winter flier no longer needs to worry about landing on thin ice or frozen lakes and rivers. Many Ski equipped planes are lost each year to thin ice.
  • The shell of each Full Lotus float is double walled to ensure a long life even in the harshest climate.
  • Full Lotus gives you a choice of either the two float or mono hull systems. Both are available with amphib option.
  • FULL LOTUS floats are better than skis. You can land in very soft snow without sinking in because of the large bearing area of the floats compared to skis. FL floats are safer than skis when landing on frozen lakes. Should the ice break, a ski plane would sink. A FULL LOTUS equipped aircraft will float.
