Quality, safety, capability and now, even more reasons why the Aviat Husky leads the pack
AFTON, Wy. (April 10, 2018) – The Aviat Husky has learned some impressive new tricks. The rugged and reliable Husky is flying off of the 2018 production line with more than a dozen upgrade options. Aviat Aircraft unveils these enhancements including an entirely new trim system, factory extended landing gear, a removable rear seat, an enhanced VFR and IFR panel featuring the latest from Garmin plus creature comforts such as heated seat options at the Aviat display at Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland, Fla., April 10-15.
“The Husky has a proud heritage; it’s reliable, safe and built with quality craftsmanship. It has a long-standing tradition for being the best-in-class and now it’s even better,” said Stuart Horn, president, Aviat Aircraft, Inc. “If you’ve been considering an upgrade or getting into a Husky for the first time, now is the time to buy. We listened to our customers and have been working hard to make enhancements that we know pilots and passengers will enjoy.”
The new trim system, which replaces the previous bungee system, features an elevator trim tab that reduces trim workload and system pressures. This system increases control stick feedback and provides a more pleasing flight experience.
Get ready for even smoother landings and incredible takeoff performance with the factory extended landing gear option. It makes the aircraft more stable for landing on terrain or slopes and adds propeller clearance by extending the gear four inches, moving the tires forward two inches and making the gear 12 inches wider.
