The Genaire manufactured skis are self-trimming in flight, using a rigging system of cables, links and shock units. In addition, the main skis employ an attitude compensating mechanism. When properly installed, these systems maintain the skis in a level attitude in the “ski-landing” position and raised clear of the wheels the “wheel landing” position.

Along with Manufacturing Wheel Skis, Genaire also provides repair and overhaul services and maintains a full inventory of spare parts and assemblies which are available to all our customers. Trained technicians and Engineering staff are on hand to support customers with any technical issues they experience.

The ski set consists of the following:

  • P/N 258-24003-1 Nose Ski

  • P/N 258-24002-11 LH Main Ski

  • P/N 258-24002-12 RH Main Ski
