Hi Sean.. I have never driven an Aerotec.. so take this with a pinch of salt if you wish.
I have driven and owned many boats in my lifetime.. and know each different type / make..will have its own characteristics. Im quite sure the Aerotec is a very secure and safe boat.. and will do as everyone said it will do. Once you get used to it.. hopefully you too will be happy with its handling capability.
I do know air floors have a totally different feel than floored SIBS..that is why there is still the option to have either...and it will initially feel “flighty” because they are so light..but its just a different handling characteristic which has to be learned..its not a negative for the boat
My wee F Rib feels flighty too ..compared to my heavy 4.3 wooden floored SIB.. but because I took time to sus its ways.. its weaknesses and strengths .. Im delighted with it. I took it out in calm conditions first ..to build up to the rough stuff.. then strong tides etc.. so perhaps you are trying to do too much with it initially ? Learn the boat’s ways ..and use them to your advantage.
No boat is perfect..at least from my perspective and experience .. but master them and understand them ..and they will do as you want.
Hope that helps some.
