Full-Lotus Floats Under New Ownership

After almost 10 years in the aircraft float business, Full-Lotus Floats has sold the design rights, inventory and production tooling for its float line to Aircraft Floats Manufacturing, Inc.

AFM will continue producing the standard line of Full-Lotus floats; it already has a large inventory and has started deliveries of floats as well as replacement parts for maintenance and repairs to existing owners. The company will soon start introducing type-specific rigging instructions for a variety of popular aircraft designs, something not previously offered by Full-Lotus.

AFM’s new production facilities are located on the Huronia Airport (CYEE) in Midland, Ontario, next to Zenair Limited, a kit aircraft manufacturer. AFM says it is also negotiating with Zenair to distribute the kit maker’s high-performance aluminum floats.
