More than 10 years after moving its float production abroad, Zenair is now bringing back research and development (R&D), as well as all production of its all-metal light aircraft float kits and assemblies to North America.
The company will begin deliveries of the first straight and amphibious models in October.
Zenair Floats were first introduced in the mid-1980s and were soon seen across the continent on early models of the Quicksilver and Lazair designs, according to company officials.
Today, Zenair Floats are available in a variety of sizes (displacement) and as straight or amphibious floats (with wheels).
“Our most popular float size today is our #1150 displacement, which is suited for the STOL 701 and other light aircraft,” says Mathieu Heintz, manager of Zenair Ltd., in Midland, Ontario. “The #1350-1400 floats will be available in the very near future. ”
Zenair floats are now available as basic or advanced (pre-drilled) kits for at-home assembly. They will be available from Zenair as factory-assembled units, ready for installation, early next year.
