CLAMAR Technologies Inc.
Announces New Float for AirCam Aircraft

November 15, 2011: Clamar Technologies Inc. of Ontario, Canada is pleased to announce a new product for AirCam owners. The new float system, to be called the M2180, incorporates all the knowledge gained from installing the Clamar M2200 floats on 16 AirCam aircraft. It will incorporate the new all electric retract system introduced on the successful M1400 LSA product line and advances in the composite world resulting in dramatic weight reductions and improved performance.
The AirCam aircraft is gaining great success based on its unusual design and capabilities. In the past, it has been difficult to fit float systems that handle the unusual rearward shift in CG when the front seat is empty and the aircraft is floating on the water. “Our new system addresses these variables with a great deal of improvements”, said Clair Sceli of Clamar Technologies.
The M2180 float system will be 72 lbs less in weight over the current offering and that will lead to an exchange weight of less than 300 lbs (possibly up to 320 lbs with exotic paint jobs) with a needed buoyancy of 2180 lbs of fresh water. Also included in the design will be changes in pickup points and entry steps to accommodate AirCam hard point alignment.
The first product will be delivered in January, 2012. Special pricing is available for the first manufacturing run of this product offering.

Real Life Egress Story

Submitted by “Bry The Dunker Guy”

A lot of the readers that have contacted me say that the columns they enjoyed best are the real life stories. The next question I am constantly asked is “Why should I take Egress Training”? A Egress student sent this to me and I thought it could cover both topics and if any of you readers have a “Real Life Egress Story” please email it to me at info@dunkyou.com .

Martin Hale from Whitefish Montana USA writes-

I started flying with a private license (SEL) in 1980, and then two years later received a float rating which was one of my life’s biggest thrills. Today I fly my Cessna 180 modified with a 0-520 and three bladed propeller on strait floats.

My flight time exceeds 5000 hours with the majority being on those floats that have taken me to places all over North America few people get to see, including Alaska for up to five times annually. Even with all that past experience I am a long way from knowing it all as flying has numerous challenges and no one person could live long enough to be caught in every scenario. That is what brought me to Bryan Webster’s Aviation Egress Systems pilot and passenger ditching school.

I had no idea what the program was all about, but was keen to learn whatever is offered which will improve my piloting or overall survival skills. The ground school was a real eye opener as everything that was discussed dealt with real life situations that have happened to aviators similar to me. One quickly realizes how important Egress training could be the first time you are rolled upside down and become totally disorientated and unable to find the door handles inside their ditching simulators.
I absolutely had no idea of the challenges that present themselves in Egressing a flipped over aircraft, or the speed at which they occur. The AES program makes the pilot think of things like different kinds of passengers that are transported in aircraft whether on wheels or floats, and what could happen if one ends up inverted in a lake or river.

Example: What about passengers who are non-swimmers, large or elderly not to mention children who rely totally on us for advice and leadership especially under the stress of an accident. We were taught first hand how dangerous a boater’s style life vest or jacket could be inside an aircraft under water in the simulators, and why inflatable PFD’S were invented for aircraft originally.

You will learn about the options available for life vests and why pilots and passengers should be wearing inflatable units, as even when ready in a warm swimming pool most of us left them behind in the rush to get out.

I have tried to talk many of my aviation buddies to take the time and attend this course with a variety of responses. One pilot said, “Oh I will just be careful and not take chances”. Others were concerned about performing poorly in front of their friends, or were uncomfortable in water. A person should put the concerns out of his/her mind and sign up soon, especially if are apprehensive as this is all the more reason to attend. Plan to use this opportunity to learn and practice these skills in a safe controlled environment where if you do poorly there are chances to repeat the procedure and get it right the next time.

A floatplane pilot is no more than a log in the water, rogue wave or sudden gust of wind away from a possible upset and one must be prepared for such an event. I have now taken this course twice, as I realized after my first session that my wife who flies with me on a regular basis should also be proficient in Egressing a ditching as I could be incapacitated during a real incident.

I strongly believe in the Egress training provided, and tell all other pilots you cannot appreciate the benefits until you complete the course. The one group of pilots who does understand why this is so important are our military folks who have long understood the dangers and repeated this training annually for years as it is mandatory for them. Just like practicing engine failures and stalls this should be included in any pilot’s emergency training program.

Signed Martin Hale.

Bryan Webster is an 11,500 hour pilot actively flying on the BC Coast today. In 1977 he was a passenger involved in a water crash while the pilot attempted to avoid power lines draped over the Fraser River east of Vancouver.

May 28, 2010

Clamar Technologies Inc and Flight Design announced recently a joint venture to introduce a new float system that will be on display in the Flight Design booth at Airventure (OSH) in July of 2010.
The Flight design CTLS will have a new Clamar Model 1400 Amphibious float system installed that will meet all the LSA rules. This float system has been specifically designed for the CT.
Clamar has been successfully selling larger floats for some years using Kevlar, Carbon fiber and their unique infusion process. Currently Clamar have their floats on 17 different types of aircraft.
Both Clamar and Flight Design’s booths at OSH are at the main entrance next to the Cessna booth.
Clamar is offering a similar float system to other LSA and experimental aircraft and will be showing that version in its own booth #120 at the show.

July 27, 2009 For Immediate Release
LSA Float systems

Clamar Technologies Inc. announced today the introduction of its Model
1400 series amphibious and straight floats for the LSA category at Oshkosh,
Wisconsin’s EAA AirVenture 2009.
The new LSA line is an extension of Clamar composite floats and will
incorporate many of the unique features now available for larger aircraft into
the new offering for the LSA line of aircraft. Clamar presently has its float
systems on 16 different types of aircraft in North America and Australia.
Clamar will be partnering with LSA manufacturers to create a product that
will enhance their ability to meet the needs of a growing demand for a float
plane option in the LSA market place.
In addition to the LSA product certified under the ASTM standards, Clamar
will have a product in the 1400 to 1600 pound category for the LSA-E
experimental and kit markets. For the first time customers will be offered a
complete composite kit for a quadricycle float system. In addition to the
amphibious systems, Clamar will also offer these floats in a straight float
version.
Using the latest technology in advanced composites, Clamar incorporates
epoxy by infusion through a unique vacuum system. Carbon fiber, Kevlar
and S- glass are used to make the Glaslite float systems a premier product.
Advanced composite materials like Aramid/Kevlar can be used because of
this specialized infusion process.
The amphibious version of the Model 1400 float will displace 1430 lbs of
fresh water or 1588 lbs with the 80 % rule and the total system will have a
target exchange weight of less than 225 pounds for most LSA float capable
aircraft. Delivery positions for all 3 versions of the float system will be
available after October 15, 2009.
