Today’s Top Pick is a 2022 Aviat A-1C-180 Husky with floats
With summer winding down and fall just around the corner, there isn’t a better time to go amphibious, especially if you live in an area of the country with four seasons. The weather is cooler, the camping is more comfortable, and the leaves offer an array of scenery that makes fall the most spectacular time of the year.
If you are looking for a late-model amphib airplane with low total time, this 2022 two-seat Aviat Husky with just 182 hours is an intriguing choice. The Husky has a mean black and red paint job that will turn heads, but that is just the beginning. The teak and holly floorboards are a signature of the Husky, reminding you of the wooden boats of yesteryear.
This Husky was recently outfitted with floats from Wipaire and comes equipped with Wipaire’s exclusive, safety-enhancing laser gear advisory system. A major danger for an amphib floatplane pilot has been ensuring that the gear is in the correct position, depending on whether the airplane is landing on water or land.
However, the Wipaire laser gear advisory system, which uses laser sensors to determine the surface the aircraft is landing on, ensures that the gear is in the appropriate position to avoid potential hazards.
This Husky also comes equipped with Garmin avionics, with free ADS-B weather. The tandem-seat is equipped with a Lycoming O-360-A1P engine.
In addition to the airplane’s low total time, it has been well-maintained and is available for $500,000 on Aircraft For Sale.
