Summit Aircraft skis are flying all around the world from Alaska to Switzerland. Our Patented Bolt-On ski mounting bracket eliminates the need for welding and aligns with the aircraft’s landing gear. Our innovative ski design is a light weight 100% Carbon Fiber structure using the “Monocoque” construction technique. The Monocoque structure supports the structural load by using the skis exterior structure, as opposed to using an internal frame that is then covered with a non-load-bearing outer skin. By constructing a stronger exterior structure; the heavy internal frames and braces are eliminated. Whether it’s an aircraft ski or a high performance aircraft, this construction technique combined with using Aerospace grade composite materials results in an incredibly strong, light weight product.

  • Easily installed or removed in less than 5 minutes.
  • Our innovative ski design weighs about half that of similar composite aircraft ski designs.
  • Light weight/low profile design has no measurable airspeed penalty.
  • Our Patented Bolt-On ski bracket requires NO welding for installation.
  • Approximately 2″ of tire penetration in wheel ski configuration.
  • Option to run as straight ski configuration.
