JAARS has  N62JA (H295 1400) for sale right now. It could be purchased for $140K. It is a flying aircraft wit  relatively low time engines and props. It is in the 10000 hour total time range but has been well maintained and sports many STC's. It has the 3800 lb gross weight, JAARS seats and Brownline track, Lord shimmy dampers. It has the swing up Utility door, and  120 gallon wings but only 60 gallon tanks (mains, no aux) installed and it has a cargo pod.

Personally this is the Helio I would by just for the mods and seats, but I would remove the cargo pod and regain some lost performance.

Both N61JA and N62JA are up for sale. I spoke at length with Marion last week regarding N6342V, this is a very well maintained airplane with lots of extra's, such as 10" tail-wheels her late husband had custom fabricated, X-wind gear, straight gear, 3800 pound gross weight. Currently on EDO 3430 straight floats. Marion says that if anyone is interested to contact her.

Larry Montgomery taught her late husband how to fly Helio's when the airplane was purchased in 1971.

With that being said, both JAARS airplanes regardless of their high time airframes are in excellent condition and have beeen maintained to a very high standard.

Thanks everybody for your reply’s, another question on Marion’s 295, very sweet lady by the way, she needs to write a book on her life adventures, anybody have any idea what market value is on N6342V?

I am also in the market for a Helio, and am sure we have looked at the same ones currently for sale.
I think ultimately it comes down to the same scenario as any other somewhat rare and/or unusual item: they are worth whatever one or more other people will pay for them........
The real question is: What is it worth to you? And then find the one with the most value per dollar...
If I needed a float plane, that would be N6342V currently. However I have no use for the floats, but love the big tundra gear.....
I may end up with a C180 or 185, just because in all reality, I need the speed, reliability and ease of maintenance more than i need the STOL performance, and it hurts really bad to admit that.
Hope that helps..... Good luck.
