Helio on Skis / Which Kind?
« on: October 01, 2012, 04:07:18 PM »
So, I want to put my helio on skis, but I don't want to loose my crosswind gear.

Can this be done?

With which skis?  Even the ski guys seem clueless on this becuase they always see an ALLREADY converted gear helio when mounting ski's so it never came up.  While I would like to go to larger tires, I dont want to change my gear and need to keep the crosswind gear....I do use it from time to time and it works great.

I recently ran into this  N6342V, Helio H-295 Super Courier, Construction Number 1283

19Apr74  modified, with facilities to allow the aircraft to operate with Federal Wheel skis; Airglas Wheel Penetration skis; crosswind landing gear; or straight gear with 850x6 tires, 30x13x6 tires or 29x13x5 tires

Send in 10 bucks to the FAA and get a complete copy of the files it will probably tell you what you want to know.
