Aviat Husky for sale
Aviat Husky For Sale


The Aviat Husky for sale is a modern day aircraft with classic looks. The manufacturer tried to purchase the rights to produce the SuperCub, but negotiations fell through. In response, they used it as a basis upon which to design a new aircraft.

While retaining its general look and tandem seating arrangement, the Aviat Husky for sale is larger, more powerful, stronger, has a greater range, and can carry a bigger payload. However its mission remains much the same as the aircraft it was modeled after.

The Aviat Husky for sale is a favorite among bush pilots who appreciate its ruggedness and short take off and landing abilities. It is used by flight schools who employ it as a trainer, by small utility operators for pulling aerial advertising banners, or getting gliders into theair, and by recreational pilots. In addition to paved runways, the aircraft has been flown from ice, snow, and water. Government and police agencies use the aircraft for enforcement duties.

Flying the Aviat Husky for sale brings back memories of a vintage aircraft when viewed from the outside, but with a modern look and feel inside. The cockpit can be fitted with all of the most up to date avionics a pilot could wish for. Its seats are well padded and very comfortable. The control stick is large and fits well in your hand.

A single pilot flies the aircraft from its front seat. Its position is well forward and high enough so that a person of average height will have better than average visibility over the nose of the aircraft. The handle for the flaps falls readily to hand, and only needs to travel a short distance for its actuation.

Short take offs in the Husky are made with the flaps fully extended. Bringing the engine rpm's up while holding the brakes and pulling the stick into your lap, then releasing the brakes, will result in a short roll and getting into the air in a hurry. With a 25 mph or so headwind, you will no sooner release the brakes than get into the air.

Today's Aviat Husky for sale no longer needs a great deal of rudder in coordinating turns.  That is a thing of the past.

The Aviat Husky for sale has an excellent glide rate, so landing approaches under 60 mph will get you down the quickest. The flaps of the Husky are extremely effective. With full flaps, controlled descents of nearly 900 fpm are possible.

With only the pilot and no luggage on board, the aircraft will be slightly nose heavy. At those times three point landings are best made using half flaps. However, full flap landings are no problem when the rear seat is occupied or there are a few pounds of luggage on board.

The total number produced of the Aviat Husky for sale has reached some 660 aircraft.
