As 350 Utility Floats

Looking to acquire Fixed Utility Floats as shown in the image attached. Yes I know these are as old as the A-Star itself but the current version of utility floats have a tendency to keep the tail rotor a little bit to clean.

 

Email me if you have any idea where I could find these.

 

Thanks,

That is correct, we tried them once and even with very little weight in the aircraft it was impossible to land in a completely smooth pond. I'm pretty sure they were just intended to be used for things like sampling when you're hovering inches above the surface and wouldn't have time to inflate pop-outs.

 

As far as the air sausages, I have actually never seen them in person, nor have heard of anyone with them, best of luck.
