Aero Ski Model R2800 for Piper PA-12

Retractable skis have in the past been impractical for many of our finest ski-planes because of their cost, complexity, and weight. With the Model R2800 Aero Ski, you can land on and take off from any suitable area, get to gas pumps, in and out of your hangar, and the skis won’t cost more than your airplane. Also available for PA-12’s with PA-18 landing gear.

* Snow landings can be done with skis up or down, but since hard surface landings are done with the skis up, retraction can be accomplished while flying with simple, efficient cable releases. (All mechanical, no hydraulic system to install or maintain each fall and spring.)
* Lighter than other retractable concepts because of the simplicity.
* Plastic bottoms to reduce drag on warm snow and minimize freeze down.
* Skis maintain the proper flight level attitude in either the “ski up” or “ski down” position.
* Can be installed by your mechanic in less time than other retractable systems of the past.
