About the elephant.  It is the logo of this very good wood company. Goodfellow.  Here in Quebec.  The guy who did own this Helio for some times.   They make flooring that can be installed without any glue, resistant to water, impervious to mildew, and strong enough an elephant can walk on it

I met and done business with some of the family members a thousand years ago.  Fine people.  Good crosscountry skiers too.  I think they were norwegian origin before coming to Quebec

Another preview image of c/n 1005 under Canadian registry, hopefully I can replace it with a better one in a few days.

Anyone have any idea what the elephant represents?

I also just noticed the three bladed prop according to the file I have the c/n 1005 was not converted from a GO-435 engine to the GO-480 until it was exported back to the US.

I thought Transport Canada was real touchy on modifications to the type certificate.

replaced preview photo with better B/W photo
