Rather than further Hijack the other Airdale Ski thread, I'll start a new one.

These skis have about 20% more surface area than the old design.

Here are the new design Airdale skis, assembled.

(Please excuse the photo quality, they were take with my phone.)


Installed on my plane.

I got them out today in what little snow we have at this time. Hopefully have a couple of videos up on YouTube shortly...

Thanks for the videos! I wish I could put skis on my kitfox. Those look like they would pretty easy to put on and remove after the initial installation.

Here's a new video on YouTube of the skis in a little deeper snow.

Is Airdale officially dead? What size 4130 tube did he use for the frame? Any reason why he didnít want to pursue the project anymore?
