Abstract:

The invention deals with a parallelogram-type landing gear with skis. The installation contains forward and rear struts hinged to the skis and to the aircraft fuselage, with a shock absorber on the rear strut. To provide shock absorption in the longitudinal direction and increase the stroke of the shock absorbers, a diagonal brace with a shock absorber is fastened between the skis at the forward strut and the fuselage at the rear strut, and the forward strut is made rigid.
