XP Modifications Inc. (XP Mods) Products

We are proud to offer the following products from the fine folks at XP Mods


At Skywagons Aero™ we are proud to offer the line of  Cessna 180/195/188 tailwheels manufactured by XP Modifications Inc.. 

  • Have you ever "blown out" at tailwheel at a backcountry strip?

  • Do you find that tailwheel parts are harder to come by and more expensive to get?

  • Would you like better maneuvering on soft strips?

  • Would you like better visibility during taxi, and ground operations?

This tailwheel is the ticket!

Tailwheels are a vital part of an airplane.  Yet sometimes during backcountry operations, a small stock tailwheel just doesn't "make the program".  It can break, "blow out" or otherwise fail.  This can be expensive or just plain aggravating.  By using the XP tailwheel, you will have a wheel that is stronger and stouter than stock.

Stock tailwheel on left, versus XP tailwheel on right.

Another feature of the XP tailwheel, is that you can also equip it with a lock to assist in high crosswind conditions.

Titanium Main Landing Gear

  • Do you fly a Cessna 180 or 185?

  • Is your main landing gear getting old?

  • Would you like to "lighten" your airplane by a few pounds?

  • Would you like to own one of the best improvements ever created for your airplane?

If your answer is yes, then we have what you've been looking for!

Titanium is one of the "miracle" materials that has been in use for many, many years.  Pound for pound it's stronger, and tougher, than steel.  How would you like to take advantage of a material that is lighter, and more corrosion resistant, than steel.
