Aviat Husky A-1C-180

 

OVERVIEW

Access areas that will take your breath away in a Husky. It’s rugged, handcrafted construction, wide-field visibility and tandem seating create an extremely comfortable and secure environment for safely flying into places other planes simply can’t.

Useful Load ± 925lbs

To fully enjoy the backcountry you need gear. The Husky’s practical CG (Center of Gravity) Envelope is designed to let you stow more and carry more – and do it safely.

That means a nicely equipped* airplane can carry up to 842 lbs, dramatically increasing the mission profile of the aircraft. Other manufacturers may claim high useful load numbers for their planes, but those numbers can be deceiving. The CG Envelope of other planes is significantly less than a Husky’s due to the design of the airframe itself. Husky stands alone in its class for its CG Envelope, performance and load carrying capabilities.

A Husky hauls more, but provides impressive fuel economy. You and your passenger, and all the gear you pack, can fly 800 miles without refueling. And, the stamina and brawn of a Husky means you won’t have to circle to get over that peak – you can just pull back and climb.

The Husky has a gross weight in excess of a REAL ton (2250 lbs.) ± 925lb Useful Load. *Standard features + right side landing light, rear seat and defrost kit, aft stowage, side baggage, bose and Garmin 530 = 1358 lbs empty.

HUSKY A-1C-180 FLYER

Performance

60% Span semi-fowler flaps allow shorter take-offs and landings – meaning you’ll have a lot more fun in a Husky. Try a few touch-and-goes and you’ll be laughing out loud as you realize what a Husky can do. In addition, you’ll discover increased stability during flight, as well as during take-offs and landings, due to the removal of spades and the installation of advanced performance ailerons.

Specialized Flap Handle

Designed to provide three settings, 10°, 20° and 30°, the handle activates the flaps with considerably shorter travel. The leverage point for deployment is always in front of the pilot. The handle offers better leverage, takes less effort and is less cumbersome to operate. more »

FAA Certification

The A-1B-160, A-1C-180 and 200 were designed to meet rigid government specs. It is certified to fly with a gross weight in excess of a FULL ton. Nothing can touch the A-1C-200 for getting into and out of remote or high altitude areas.

High Density Altitude – Made Real Easy

I can reliably say that at 10,000 feet this airplane will climb at least 300 feet per minute more than our 180 HP Husky A-1B. It cruises in the the yellow arc. The fuel burn is at least one gallon per hour less than the carbureted 180 HP. The takeoff and climb is spectacular.
