Forget it my friend, they will not perform outside flight training unless you are certified pilot and a member or volunteer of the organization!! Sorry to say!!

Why don't you just do a photographic comparison ?, you will quickly establish the appearance of the Helio from all others!!

 It is to easy to tell them from the cessna!  I mean  from the different model helios like H-295 to a H-395.

3-blade prop for one, that would be the most noticeable difference, other that that it would the serial no.# and that doesn't mean to reflect if the aircraft has been modified

Helio H-391B 0-99.. Helio 395A is the same model with serial #'s (1000 and above)

Helio H-395 500-630

Helio 250 (2500 and up, only 40 built)

Helio H295 (1200 and up, manual flaps and trim)

Helio 295 (1400 series up to 1479)

Helio HT-295 ( 1700 series, ones built and delivered by the factory)

Super Cub, Citabria, or a C-180/185...Do it all in a tail-wheel from the start, then when you are ready for the Helio you at least have a common knowledge of how things work!!

ok I think that there is a 180 in the area for training. A friend gots a cessna 195, what  kind of trainer would that make? ( If he would let me use it) I don't think there is any super cubs in the area but there might be a Citabria.

The Helio 800 you speak of is now the turbine in service with Pima County...!!

The Helio H250 was introduced to be a low-cost export to South America using 80/87 octane fuel. The airplane suffered performance wise due to the direct-drive Lycoming O-540-A1A5 (250 HP) same engine as PA-24 Comanche and Aztec. It gets off short because it is fairly light-weight, but useless above 7500 feet AGL, and do not install the 3800 pound gross weight mod or 120 gallon fuel, to under-powered for that!! Cruise is 108 KTS...
