Two floatation tubes approximately 4 metres in length, for attaching to the base of the Bell Ranger helicopter (ZK-HGO) skids to facilitate water landing.

Also on the frame poles are metal attachment blocks painted black, fastened via long U-bolts (four per float). There are two aluminium cross tubes that attach to and support the frame. The floats are painted yellow. Each float has six air valves to facilitate inflation.
