HIGH QUALITY TIG WELDING
Each Husky airframe is handcrafted using a superior arc welding process called TIG welding. This process is more time consuming and more difficult to master, but it eliminates contaminates in the weld and gives the craftsman more control over the welding process.
The net result is Husky’s entire airframe is based on stronger, higher quality welds. This includes the 4130 Chrome Molybdenum steel tube fuselage, the landing gear, the tail and the struts.
All our steel weldments are corrosion proof and entirely sealed so no contamination or oxidation can enter into them. Again, safety counts most for us and should be every pilot’s number one priority – especially when stressing the aircraft while flying in the backcountry.
Note: It’s important to mention the diameter of the Husky’s fuselage is larger than other planes’ in its class. Smaller diameter airframes tend to bend and fail more easily. Larger diameter frames are stronger.
The Husky is a very sturdy plane. Perfect for rugged environments.
