3400 Amphib
3400

Cessna 180 - 185 Models

The Aerocet 3400 Amphibious Floats are designed to handle airplanes with gross weights up to 3775 pounds and certification work is continuing for various other model aircraft.   These floats still work very well on the lighter 180 aircraft especially accompanied by gross weight increase kits (read discussion in the straight float section).  Float weight with all the rigging is 651 pounds with an exchange weight (minus regular gear) of 516 pounds.  The versatility of amphibious floats is unmatched, but plan on giving up a passenger for being able to land both on water and on land versus straight floats.

3500L
3500

Cessna 180's (1957 and later), 182's, 185's and 206's, and the Found Bushhawk.

The 3500's, which weigh 490 lbs. with complete rigging, are designed to handle the higher Cessna 206 gross weights and their higher stall speeds. Remember that a Cessna 180 has the same wing area as a 206. Float strength is designed by both weight and stall speed. We felt that there was room to drop 40 lbs. of weight out of the floats and still match the strength required for these lighter applications thus coming within approximately 15 lbs. of the weight of the EDO 2960's. These lighter floats have been designated 3500L's and weigh 448 lbs. The floats have been tested and have FAA approval at this time. The advantages of the larger floats is safety. Buoyancy is what it's all about when you have four people, a load of fuel and baggage with the wind blowing. Plus they have huge baggage compartments. Finally, the 180 crowd has a great larger float. Both the 180's and the 185's are approved on the 3500L's.
