This site is dedicated to educating the world on the amazing and capable, legacy, Controllable Short Takeoff and Landing (C/STOL) aircraft, the Helio Courier.

The Helio is unrivalled in its class as a mid-weight, utility, piston-powered, STOL aircraft. with a useful load of up to 1,400 lbs.

Helio aircraft were produced from 1954-1974, with a brief return in the mid-1980s.

We seek to be an additional resource for those interested in Helio aircraft.
