    Fli-Lite 3000 Ski

    Hello, I'm new at this so bear with me. I have a PA-12, 150 HP.,Borer 82-42 prop, flaps, and 18 tail on Dodge 3" PA-18 extended gear with 1-1/2" axles. I've found a great set of 3000's at a reasonably low price and would like to put them on. From what I can find the 3000's were not approved for the 12. Does anyone have, or know anyone who may have a 12 with these skies on. Field approvals, 337's, or any ideas. THANKS [/b]

    Poor Joe: Are you talking about the wheel penetration 3000's? Or are they wheel retraction? Either way I don't think I've ever seen them installed on a PA-12 or 18. Too Heavy/ Too Large.

    Nanook: The 3000's came off of a PA-18 in Canada and I also saw a cub in Palmer with a pair but never a 12.

    Landesski: The skis are retraction type and I believe you are right about Wipair. I"ll have to give them a call. I do have all the rigging, parts, and drawings from the cub.

    THANKS FOR THE REPLY:

    3000 Parts

    Hey - I'm posting this for a friend - can anybody help out?:

    _________________________________

    Brad,

    Need some help dude. We are refurbishing a pair of Fli-Lite skis and we have some missing parts. I was wondering if you could throw out the info to the respectable people you associate with. They don't make the ski any more so I'm sure the only parts to be found are in someone's hanger or barn.
    Flui Dyne Fli-Lite Skis
    Model 3000 Mark III
    1 ea Front bungee cable assy.
    2 ea Axle assy. for a Scout
    2 ea Slider bars

    Thanks for the help in the hunt.
    Chuck

    Cubus Maximus: Brad

    I spoke recently with Wipaire parts dept. and then transfered to the engineer in charge of the skis. He said that they purchased all of the inventoy from the previous manufacturer but everything was unsorted and in storage at this time. He said that they would probably begin selling and or manufacturing in the near future. You might try calling them.

    Thanks Joe!

    Wip is not to far down the road and since this has to go on a MN DNR airplane asap they weren't feeling very helpful. I appreciate the info though!
