For those of you aviators out there that have an interest in the Helio line of C/STOL aircraft

You can of course stop by here at my Helio hangar and come on board

Is the shindig still on?


#10

I’ll let you know if I learn anything, he was last on his own site on 16NOV.


#11

He was posting like gangbusters, then disappeared on 10/15 and hasn’t been heard from here since. Thanks James.


#12

Hey, I’m back…got busy with a Helio re-build and I’m in the process of doing paperwork regarding the installation of a Lycoming IGSO-540-B1C (380 HP)…This installation should send the gal into orbit!!!


#13

If I bring my own tools can I play too? :laughing:


#14

Heck yeah!!..bring it on. We have do all the crazy FAA paperwork, then the installation. The existing engine mounts can handle the Lyc and since it is “supercharged” I should get to 31,000 feet no problem.

These engines were used in Aero Commanders and Queen Airs in the 60’s most notably the 680FP and Queen Air 80/88.

Lycoming was modest with the TBO at 1200 hours and I’m pushing it up to 1700 because with proper technique they will do all of that


#15

OK, I’ll stop at Usinger’s on the way up and steal some Brats from Fritzie, you supply the fire! :wink:
