Protected Parts

Middle Fork Mods, LLC was conceived and inspired out of experience and necessity. We designed the Cessna Tail Slide, directly addressing a problem we have repaired over and over in our maintenance facility. Over 20 years of operating and maintaining single engine Cessna’s in the Idaho Backcountry lead us to developing, certifying, patenting and now manufacturing and marketing our Cessna tail slide, often referred to as a tail skid. Our tail slide is the preventative action for the most common reoccurring accidental damage we see happen to our own and customer’s Cessna’s. In this case prevention is much more cost effective than the cure. Our product is ideal for rough field operations and flight schools.
