Sports 200 Pound Gross Weight Increase
Aviat Aircraft has announced the upcoming approval of their new
Husky A-1C. The new design would increase the gross weight by
nearly 200 pounds.
Company officials tell ANN the Husky A-1C design will also
incorporate several new options for propellers including a new 80"
Hartzell metal and 76" composite propellers with the 200 hp engine.
The 180 hp and 200 hp engines will also have 76" Hartzell metal or
80.5" MT composite propeller options.
"The objective with the change is to expand the envelope for
Husky operations, Stuart Horn, President of Aviat Aircraft, said,
"The marketplace keeps asking for more utility and we find ways to
accommodate those requests. Increasing the useful load by 192
pounds, which brings it up to 842 pounds on a very nicely equipped
airplane, dramatically increases the mission profile for the
aircraft. The design stands alone in its class for performance and
load carrying capability."
The new designs will require design changes for the landing gear
and tailwheel components. Additional information can be found at
the Aviat Aircraft website.
