About P.K. Floats

Founded in 1954 by Pete Kelner of International Falls, Minnesota, PK Floats has been located in Lincoln, Maine since 2000. During the past 12 years, under the ownership of Alton Bouchard, PK has developed and certified two new amphibious float models, the 3050A for Cessna 185's and 2250A for Aviat Husky. PK Floats currently hold more than 30 STC's for all PK float models produced since 1954, as well as the technical data and tooling required to produce the floats, attachment gear and replacement parts. There is a large stock of extrusions for spreader tubes, struts, keels, coaming and chine. Inventory contains over 1000 replacement parts for all models and more than 10 pair of partially completed hulls on the production floor.
