Aviat's popular Husky A-1C now comes with a new, lighter, and more responsive tailwheel assembly

FAA approves new tailwheel for Aviat Husky

Alaska Bushwheel has just completed the FAA's approval process for utilizing a new tailwheel assembly on Aviat Aircraft's Husky A-1C. The new tailwheel features a three leaf steel tail spring that weighs 2.5 pounds less than the old five leaf model and is approved for the Husky's 2200 pound gross weight.        

The configuration of the new leaf spring rotates the geometry of the tailwheel housing assembly, causing the wheel fork to posture in a more vertical format. That in turn, enhances ground control with less control input required.        

The new Alaska Bushwheel tailwheel assembly is now standard equipment on the Husky A-1C and can be retrofitted to older Husky models.
