NOW TSO'd under C-28, AIRCRAFT SKIS
(Also STC'd - over 70 aircraft models)
This exceptionally strong, lightweight fiberglass ski has a 685 pound load rating (tested to 6,085 pounds concentrated load). It features chromoly steel pedestals and a unique adjustable rigger for individual installation requirements.
The eight different models are designed to fit Scott and McCauley tail wheel configurations in 8" and 10" tire sizes. Installations have been made on a number of aircraft, including:
Cessna 170, 170A, 170B
Piper PA-12s, PA-14s and PA-18s
Maule M5s, M6s and M7s
All MAGNUM I wheel penetration tail skis are accompanied by complete installation instructions and drawings, a limited lifetime warranty for the original owner of the ski.
"This ski is by far the largest on the market for its application. The smallest configuration is 14 inches wide and 23 inches long, while the largest is 16 inches wide and 23 inches long. Despite its size, it weighs just 7 3/4 pounds."

(Owner and product inventor)
"When I installed the tail ski (MAGNUM I), I discovered that my 185, on Landes 3000 straight skis, could perform figure eight turns, where as before I could only make a circle."
"Ever since I installed your tail ski (MAGNUM I), the tailfeathers on my 185 never touched the snow again, no matter how deep."
"I'VE TRIED THE AERO, THE SCHNEIDER AND THE FEDERAL TAIL SKIS - AND YOURS INSTALLS MORE EASILY AND OUT PERFORMS THEM ALL."
