Ski for SZD-50-3 Puchacz and SZD-54-2 Perkoz

In the near future we are planning to produce a limited series of take-off skis for the two-seater gliders SZD-50-3 Puchacz and SZD-54-2 Perkoz.

A take-off from snow is a lot of fun. Skis has been successfully used in Nowy Targ to tow gliders to the mountain wave of Tatras, and also for example in Bezmiechowa, where the take-off from the top of the slope was even shorter when using a ski as compared to a traditional wheel. Anyone who has ever had to push heavy PUCHACZ or BOCIAN through the deep snow knows that a ski is a convenient and practical solution for the winter.

Ski comes with a wheel, which allows to maneuver the glider inside the hangar or on the apron. Installation is simple and consists mainly of the removal of the nose wheel. The main undercarriage remains mounted.

Start of production is dependent on the number of interested people and the number of potential orders. Having collected the data we would be able to specify the price and estimated delivery time.
