395A Float STC

(1/8) > >>

Hello all. Purchased H-395A sn 1006 on 3400 floats. The STC for the float conversion from 2870 to 3400 and gross up to 3400# was not present. Anyone know where to purchase a copy.

Doug Johnson:
Most of the H-395A's have been converted to the GO-480 is your H-395A still powered by the GO-435? What kind of condition is the airplane in?

Can you post a picture of C-FNNB I also notice its been de-registered can you tell me about it.

The float  STC SA731CE is for EDO 582-3430,

STC SA731CE, "Joy Frank",Issued,01/01/1960,"Cape Cod Aeromarine Box 398","Orleans","MA","02653","United States","Installation of Edo 582-3430 floats.","1A8,","ANE-150 Boston Aircraft Certification Office Tel: (781) 238-7151","Alliance Aircraft Group, LLC\H-391B; "

The up-gross to 3300 is SA1467CE
Increase in maximum gross weight from 3,000 lbs. to 3,300 lbs. per Clarence H. Brent Drawings B395-1
1A8 - Alliance Aircraft Group, LLC - H-395 (USAF L-28A or U-10B)

What you probably want is Clarence Brents SA2261CE 3,800lb up-gross you need to contact.

That STC does not apply to the 395A.

The H395A is identical to the H391B and is only approved at 3000 pound gross. The airplanes that have been STC'ed to the GO-480 have been done so on a field approval or 337.

The tubing is still at .040 so you are limited to the 3000 pound figure.

One 395A still has the GO-435 in Canada, only 8 were built

Doug Johnson:
c/n 515 was the first 395A it apparently took the place of 1001 which was never built

N44298 First Factory 395A, originally ordered as a 395 with a 391 eng and baggage compartment but the new 395A model with an option for larger baggage area was ready for production.

c/n 1006 the one here its mark CF-NNB indicate its the Canadian 395A probably C-FNNB now looks like maybe there will be a 4th 395A flying soon, two in Canada and two in the US.

c/n 1004 CF-AFA is also in Canada

And now that its been pointed out the 395A isn't included in the 3800lb up-gross I guess you're limited to the 3300lb upgross.
Below is most of c/n 1008 FAA file.
