The Skicopter was an aircraft that only appeared in the Thunderbirds 1965 episode The Abominable Snowman. It was designed specifically to fly to and land in the Himalayas.

Gallup Din organised it for Lady Penelope, Parker and the local guide to investigate reports of the Abominable Snowman in the area.

However, the guide was the Hood in disguise and he deliberately sabotaged the aircraft by fuel jettison, and parachuted the ejector compartment with himself and Lady Penelope on board to a spot near his secret hideout.

After trapping Parker and finding out that Penelope had discovered he was lying, he hypnotised her with his eyes and used another Ski-Copter to take her to his torture room. This one was destroyed when he blew up the ice cave.
