I'm building a ramp for my 701 on amphib floats. Any suggestions as to an acceptable angle , that is, what angle can the 701 handle ?


Thanks from a new member, and learning all I can.

With my little experience in the 701 with a Viking, it will just about go straight up! :)

See my blog post Flying in the Caribbean: Guadeloupe from a couple of years ago.  I don't know the angle of their ramp but it works well with their STOL CH 701s on the Zenair amphibs.

Thanks, Sebastian, good info, & loved the pics.vid of your trip.
