Kehler Model 6000 Electro-hydraulic series skis – only three landings for flight testing on a New Zealand Glacier.

Special note on the ski system: The ski system was certified and fitted by Mel Christian of Kehler Skis in Canada.  The intention was to use the skis for a flight to the South Pole, which didn’t eventuate.  The aircraft did one flight to New Zealand, for Dick Smith to be certified for ski landing on the Tasman Glacier. 

The below photographs show the landing.  The skis were fitted by the Cessna agent in Sydney and then removed after the two week flight.  For fitting the skis, the tyres need to be changed to normal size.
