Other than cosmetic is there any reason to keep them on a plane?
Reason I ask is because I have a PKZ Extra 300 and have flown it about 7 or 8 times. 3 of those times the Wheel Pants have caused damage to the plane when landing in grass. 2 of th e3 times minor damage ripping a wheel off. Today ripped the whole under carriage off the plane.
They get hung up and snag the grass. They gotta go IMO. Even thinking of over sized wheels
