I think most Wilgas in this country are on an Experimental certificate; every example I have seen was. Probably a reason why they aren't used much commercially in places like Alaska. Since they were also designed in a cold climate, I would have thought they'd be ideal.I am surprised that the Wilga was not used as a bush plane that much, if at all. It seems like it would be a good contender.
But did you end up sending it away to the knackery, poor old Boxer.Antonov An-2. You've never burned so much gas to do 105, but there's almost no practical limit to what you cam cram into the thing. Big dumb animal. I was once well aquainted with one that we referred to as "Boxer" for those of you who've read some Orwell.
Daryl, what is the connection between the Bushman and Just Aircraft? I didn't see anything on their web site. I came across this plane last year and was very interested - like a kit-based Wilga! -Dan
