Help, need ski installation drwings for a Norseman

#1 Post by Anders Håkensen » Tue Dec 15, 2015 8:37 am

Hi

I need Installation drawings for Federal AWA 7550L skis for a flying Noorduyn Norseman SE-CGM (soon to be registered in Norway)
We have got the skis, but need help to install them, like drawings, documents or instructions.

We probably also need the axle extension, and the clamp to put on the landing gear, and a tail ski, and maybe a Hyd. pump.
(or drawing of these parts)

Detalied pictures of the installation would also help.

Thanks

I vaguely remember seeing one in hangar in Red Deer a number of years ago. Can't recall for sure if it had skis or not, but think it may have. You could contact Sky Wings Aviation as they operate the hangar and could have more info.

Glen Crandall in Ponoka AB has CF-UUD. It was on wheel skis at one time.

Gordon Hughes operates Northland Aircraft Service in Ignace ON. He has a large quantity on Norseman parts. He is regarded as the Norseman expert. Ph 807-934-6394

Rare for the Norsman to be on wheel skis. This guy has some recent pictures of a yellow CF-UUD on wheel skis.

You can look up the current owner of CF-UUD at http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/saf-sec-sur/2/c ... hSimp.aspx

Did you ever find any installation drawings for those skis?
the ones on CF-UUD, or now N164UC are Federal P/N AWA7550L
