Matt, He may have ran afiat of good things to say about the Husky I can’t find ANY good characteristics except it’s sort of similar to a Cub: It can be converted to an A-1A, but would be cheaper to buy an A-1B likely. Ka Ka Choose an Aircraft IS Choose an Aircraft After that, I’ll go up to Andover’s and get the same in a Husky.

The advantage here is that when that airplane goes to floats, the gross weight goes toso the useful actually increases, since the exchange weight is onlyor so. Mark, I’d beg to differ with you.

Husky pilots tend to just show you what they do. The structure is steel tube frames and Dacron covering over all but the rear of the fuselageplus metal leading edges on the wings.

Does that make the Helio a bad airplane, or a poor off airport airplane? Seems to me you are just trying to aggrivate the Super Cub drivers on this site.
