The C-A185F is a great performing workhorse and cross country aircraft. On amphibious floats- particularly Aerocets- its in a class of its own opening up more use in all water operations with that combination. I highly recommend Sportsmans STOL- adding a LRI (lift reserve) angle of attack system with Vortex generators. On wheels- I also suggest the Alaska Bushwheel tailwheel configuration. That allows looking straight over the nose while on the ground. The Wings West engine mount adds more strength and significantly reduces engine vibration. Also added Monarch aux tanks. Endurance increase significant. FUN to fly!
