Retractable floats for your amphibian aircraft

Australian company Tigerfish Aviation has developed a way to get your amphibian plane from lake to lake while increasing the distance and decreasing the fuel cost when you and Crocodile Dundee fly from barbie to barbie.

The company says its retractable floats reduce fuel consumption, while increasing range, payload, speed and operating cost.

Tigerfish says the design, which pulls the floats into a belly beneath the fuselage, can be retrofitted to regional airliners, utility aircraft, executive aircraft, UAVs and military transports.

Of course, if you are looking for a new toy to go from lake to air, you can check out our complete list of amphibian aircraft for sale here.
