Work on the design of the aircraft Aviat Husky began in the first half of 80-ies, with American aircraft designers have tried to create a multi-purpose aircraft, calculated as on the carriage of passengers and small cargo transportation, training future pilots, etc., however, eventually the aircraft Aviat Husky design has undergone a number of changes, in view of that, the purpose of this aircraft has shrunk considerably.

On board the aircraft Aviat Husky can only accommodate one passenger and the pilot, at the same time, the aircraft is designed to overcome the distance to 1270 kilometers, which is quite acceptable in view of the limited use of this aircraft. In addition, later, with the advent of modified versions of the aircraft Aviat Husky was able to overcome the distance to 1450 kilometers, to an even greater degree of satisfaction of customers and is one of the reasons why the aircraft continues to produce until now.

Among other things, the aircraft Aviat Husky has a high degree of reliability - is currently aware of only one emergencies graduated from the crash of the aircraft of this model, which occurred in the year 1989.

Piston aircraft engines are used as the power plant on the Aviat Husky aircraft. The basic version of the aircraft was equipped with a four-cylinder Lycoming 0-360-A1P aircraft engine with a capacity of 180 hp, which allowed the aircraft to accelerate to a maximum speed of 192 km / h. Subsequently, the power plants underwent a number of significant changes, and the aircraft could already take on board a large load, while its maximum flight speed increased to 248 km / h.
