Dean Franklin Widgeon 5400 lb conversion

Postby 8873 » Mon Oct 15, 2012 3:43 am

Help! Does anyone have a flight manuel supplement (loading data, center of gravity, single engine performance) for the 5400 lb (land) Dean Franklin conversion for the Grumman G-44 Widgeon??

After 28 years I discovered that my flight manuel supplement is for a different conversion.

Unfortunately the FAA has thrown away this information, so my only source is from another Franklin Widgeon owner.

Hi Colby, Welcome Aboard.
Have you tried the Grumman Amphibians Yahoo Group ?
( )
There are several Franklin Gander owners and former owners there.
If not I know a couple Gander owners that could probably help.
Send me a PM or apply to the Group (I'm the Groups owner) and we'll see what we can do.
(Which airplane do you have ?)

In water flying attitude is everything
