Take the Husky Flying Experience
During the summer months we plan to have a few Husky Flying Camps to enjoy backcountry flying and camping in the Husky. You will learn best practices, sharpen your flying skills, make new friends and have a great time. Furthermore, each participant will have the opportunity to receive special sales offers strictly unique to attending this event on all Aviat Aircraft.
It’s all-inclusive: aircraft, instructor, fuel, meals, lodging, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, etc. Note: You must be a pilot with a current medical.
