This is a kind of interesting Helio it was sold by Jaars '15, to Michael Chenoweth Homestead, FL it was recently in an accident The pilot experienced a loss of directional control and a subsequent runway excursion upon landing @ Grenada Municipal Airport MS Feb'21, he sold it 2 months later Apr/21, to N44344 LLC (Dan Michels) of Wasilla/Wolf Lake AK.

Here are some recent photographs not sure if they are from before or after the recent accident.

Its only been in AK for about 3 months. Maybe one of you Alaska guys can get a more recent photo.

I'll open the photos in the Queue above.

There were about 30 STCs installed on this a/c and the Jaars for sale information had them all sorted out so I edited the History paragraph.

Actually you could go to this history paragraph and get most of the important Jaars STC numbers if you were looking for them.
