TOST Conversion Kit Classic – LS4/LS8
Many modern gliders and power gliders are originally equipped with disk brake wheels nowadays. To make available their advantages also for elder aircraft types, we offer retrofit kits from shoe brake wheel to disk brake wheel.
Depending on the aircraft type the available space varies. With very tight space in the landing gear box the existing shoe brake wheel has to be replaced by a complete new disk brake wheel. If there is more space available, a brake disk only can be fitted to the existing wheel hub, after removing the shoe brake assembly.
For the following aircraft types, (See table to right) we offer complete retrofit kits to disk brake that include all necessary components. Please check for an approval previously with your inspector.
