Designed primarily by Tom Price (with some input from Tom Peghiny and Larry Newman) and released in 1979, the Floater was Electra Flyer's first attempt at a glider to compete with the Moyes gliders and La Mouette's Atlas, both of which employed light wing loading to achieve a low sink rate while still offering some glide at speed. While it achieved both goals, it turned out not to be competitive with its rivals. It remained in production for a year, being replaced with a somewhat smaller version called the Spirit which, while it did not have the Floater's sink rate, was more maneuverable and easier to fly.
The largest size floater was a popular tandem glider in the early 1980s.
