The Husky A1 is a two-seat high-wing aircraft with STOL characteristics, built by Aviat Aircraft.
The plane is one of the few in its class designed by computer-aided design (CAD) and entered mass production in the United States in 1987. The structure is steel tube with Dacron covers, and power is provided by a powerful (for the Husky’s weight) Textron Lycoming O-360-A1P 134 kW (180 hp) four-cylinder engine mated to a variable-pitch Hartzell propeller. The Husky is one of the most successful light aircraft of the past two decades, with more than 650 models sold since production began.
I-HHH is a 1990 Aviat Husky A1, purchased by A.C.A.O. in 1999 and used as a glider tow and for difference qualification to bicyclic (TW) and variable pitch (VP) aircraft.
