c/n1710 is for sale. Anyone know what the asking price is? I saw this below in blue at the sale site. I found kind of Interesting. Apparently D, Maytag and co. put this together and since they sold the Helio Courier part of the type certificate they no longer need it. If they can afford it the 'Helio Alaska' should probably try to acquire it. Then work on all the speed mod tweaks figure out how to beef up the nose wheel like the cessna 206 maybe add a TIO540 so it can go high an fairly fast

This is surely the nicest Helio Courier in existence! It was updated by Helio Aircraft LLC as a pre-production prototype with a modern interior design, paint scheme and avionics panel, at a cost of over $225,000 (over and above an original acquisition cost of $200,000). It is no longer needed by Helio Aircraft LLC so it is offered for sale.

I kind of like this simple paint scheme, it seems to be a popular style lately.

Personally I think the asymmetrical U-10D panel is a better panel than this 1400 series shape especially for the taildragger.

I'd probably have to go to school for a week to learn to operate a panel like this.
This is long way from the panels I flew with.

I also noticed the 'Helio Aircraft llc' logo on the tail of te a/c in the last photo above and the Yokes in the picture of the instrument panel. I will post the picture of the panel and open it here.

If you were interested in that style of yokes it might be worth trying to contact someone there at Helio aircraft and seeing if they would give you a contact to purchase some.
