Flying in the outback is tough duty. You need a proven airplane that can handle the harsh, yet beautiful, environments you encounter flying on a glacier in Alaska, a remote lake in Northern Canada, or a jungle clearing in Mexico. It is not uncommon to see a Helio tied up to the dock in Alaska or dropping off a group of scientists in the Harbor in Seattle after a glacier expedition up north.
Helio Features for the Outback include:
- Unbelievable Slow flight controllability and STOL capabilities unmatched by other certified production aircraft allow you to get safely in and out of tight spaces with a load
- Helio’s legendary tail wheel design is as rugged as it gets and the main gear are placed well forward so the aircraft is unlikely to nose over even in deep mud or snow
- The Helios are equally at home on wheels, floats, amphibious floats, or skis
- Tubular steel cage creates a safe environment for the occupants in the event of a mishap and provides rugged durability so your Helio will serve reliably for many years and thousands of hours of hard work
