Helio Courier exhaust parts

            The Koppen-Bollinger Aircraft Corporation was founded in Massachusetts in 1948 with the purpose of developing a light, utility STOL aircraft. By the time the Helio Courier was in production however, the company was renamed the Helio Aircraft Corporation and relocated to Pittsburg, Kansas by the early 1950’s.

            Introduced in 1954 by the Helio Aircraft Company, the Helio Courier is light STOL (short take off and landing) aircraft with a cantilever high-wing, and a Lycoming GO-480 engine with 295 hp. While there were only 500 Helio Courier produced in it’s 20 year production history, these aircraft were well renowned for their fast takeoffs and their ability to climb at very high angles. One drawback to the design though was that the engine often required maintenance on a constant basis.

            In the 1980’s there was an attempt by the newest owner, the Helio Aircraft Ltd., to address this engine problem by making new aircraft and replacing the geared engines with direct-drive Lycoming engines. And while there were two new models produced out of this effort, the H-800 and the H-700, only a total of 18 were produced.
