Here is a nice picture of Gordons Helio. Nice colors choice in typical 1400 series Factory scheme.

I like the appearance of these registry numbers they look better when they are not slanteded.

For sale at Trade-A-Plane for $220K. located Georgetown, TX. How far is that from Gloster, TX ?

Seems high priced, but with the cost of a new Cessna 206 at $700K, maybe that isn't so expensive afterall, and it has no accident history and was refurbished two yrs ago.

They don't mention it but it looks like a 120 gallons.  A drain plug is visible on some photo.  If it is the case, then this Helio have everything you can wish for.
