I own a bunch of fly-in fishing lodges.
I don’t fly commercially, but use my private license to access my outposts on floats to fly myself, friends, and staff in to do work and bring in supplies. Recently I bought a Maule M-5 on floats 210 HP Fuel injected.
It is 40 years old, low time, totally rebuilt 6 years ago and well maintained. I found it to be a handful after my Champs and Cessna’s. Short wing and little glide. It is called a Lunar Rocket. When I cut the power I was thinking of calling a “Lunar Rock” !
Then I decided to buy your Micro VG’s with the STC. Best money I ever spent. It is like getting a brand new and improved airplane. These things should probably be on most airplanes.
And bonus: it took me and a friend less than 5 hours to install. Best instructions I have seen. Great templates and other materials.
Feel free to quote me.
Thanks so much for a great product, that turned a pretty good floatplane into a great floatplane.Bruce Hyer - www.wabakimi.com
