    Default More info needed...

    What type of airplane on floats?

    Is 750 lbs your estimated travel weight?
    Or is it the estimated max weight for a type of aircraft?

    Default per hour costs...sometimes

    Helio Courier, 700/750 lb payload. $500 per hour...sometimes...
    Beaver, 1200 payload...$750.00 per hour....sometimes...
    Super Cub, passenger + 70+- lb payload...$250.00 to $300.00 per hour...sometimes...

    ...sometimes air transporters charge by the hour, sometimes by the trip.

    Your leaving out alot of variables here, small village around fairbanks????, also how many people are going? if you have multiple people (more than 2) your best bet is the Beaver.

    The cheapest expense in owning a plane....is buying the plane !!!!
