OSHKOSH, WIS. – Wipaire, Inc. of South St. Paul, Minnesota, is helping to support “Mission Aviation Fellowship International” by contributing a single-point fuel system at no charge to supplement their purchase of Wipline 8750 amphibious floats for their new Cessna 208 Caravan. The Cessna 208 Caravan is destined for service in Bangladesh, where the single-point fuel system will provide ease and safety when fueling on the floats in remote regions. In addition, Wipaire will install pitch locks for improved handling during docking and startup on floats, along with its exclusive Laser Gear Advisory System, a depth finder and other refinements to tailor the aircraft to the organization’s demanding mission. Phil Snell and Ed Hawthorn of Mission Aviation Fellowship International were on hand at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh to join Wipaire officials in making the announcement.
