A word about Wipaire's Boss Beaver Conversion:
The Boss Beaver has significant greater performance and speed over the MK III Turbo Beaver with unmatched performance, less than 1000 ft water take off at full gross @ 6100 lbs, with a rate of climb greater than 1000 fpm!
The gross weight has been increased to 6100 lbs, which is 100 lbs larger than MK III gross weight of 6000 lbs. The Boss Beaver also weighs less due to the larger tail and longer cabin in the heavier MK III Beaver. Modernized fuel system relocated from the belly to the redesigned in the thicker skin/reinforced wings, 205 US gallons of useable fuel designed after the Caravan Fuel system, a simple on/off style. The wings also have a reinforced spar and flow generators improving the aileron authority at lower speeds. Located at KSGS, Fleming Field Airport South Saint Paul, MN.
