Improved Takeoff And Flight Performance
The new trim system, which replaces the previous bungee system, features an elevator trim tab that reduces trim workload and system pressures. This system increases control stick feedback and provides a more pleasing flight experience.

Get ready for even smoother landings and incredible takeoff performance with the factory extended landing gear option. It makes the aircraft more stable for landing on terrain or slopes and adds propeller clearance by extending the gear four inches, moving the tires forward two inches and making the gear 12 inches wider.

Best Seats In The House
Just pull a few quick-release pins and the rear seat and rear stick of the Husky can be removed. Add the stick cover and the aft cabin is transformed into more than 35 cubic feet of cargo space.

Another great new feature is the adjustable front seat which now slides forward and up, aft and down, locking in greater comfort for pilots of any height, plus making easier ingress and egress for pilots, passengers and cargo. Plus, it enhances forward visibility in any position.

For those cold days and chilly altitudes, new heated seat options for pilot and passenger make flying a joy even on those long trips. A new tufted diamond-stitch pattern and tufted chevron pattern upholstery in multiple colors adds style to the interior while new ANR headset control box holsters make for a cleaner and clutter-free environment.

Check Out The View … Of The Cockpit: VFR And IFR Avionics
While flying a Husky is a thing of beauty promising many scenic adventures, the new cockpit further enhances the view. In addition to the Standard VFR panel, the Husky now offers an Enhanced VFR and IFR panel featuring the 10.6” Garmin GTXi 500 touchscreen display. With a crisp display, integrated engine analytics and a GTN 750 Nav/Comm/GPS, this is the most capable, attractive and intuitive flight deck ever found in a Husky. There’s even a new glove box and device storage cubby.

The Enhanced IFR panel also offers the SAM digital standby altimeter, airspeed indicator, artificial horizon, its own a standby back up battery and more, making the Husky the most mission capable recreational machine in the world. It is also autopilot ready, with the Genesys Aerosystems S-TEC 3100 Digital Flight Control System. The S-TEC 3100 is a fully featured, digital three-axis attitude-based autopilot with electric trim.

A Sparkling Personality
Aviat Aircraft encourages and appreciates personal style. Each Husky can be customized with sound systems, floats, skis and now metallic paint. For the first time, Husky owners can enjoy this special paint treatment that adds stunning depth and aesthetic appeal to set the airplane apart.
