Maybe the wrong forum, but I'll give it a go.
Anyone had a chance to test fly or buy a Bushhawk?

There is a dark blue one in space, ooooh, maybe 100, on the southern shore of lake spenard that showed up this summer. Belongs to Shane Langland. I see in the last week or so he's hung out a banner about giving him a call if you want information or a demo. Big sign on the side of the gas shack there. I think he still owns Eagle Enterprises. If I ever catch him out there I'll ask him how he likes it.

also one on floats in Whitehorse, red I think. But if you're in Oregon, Idaho is a little closer! Bob has been trying to get together with me to fly one but we haven't connected yet. He is a salesman, but an honest one, I've known and flown with him for years, and it sounds like a great replacement for 185-206 type aircraft.

It is an interesting airplane. Get with Hannah or his partner Kasey Lindsey and get them to take you for a ride. Good guys, and they like to fly.
You can read most of the advertising hype on line at their web site, and most of it (at least as much as anyone else trying to sell airplanes) seems to be fairly accurate.
It's a big, square airplane. one piece wing with a DC-4 wing section. No struts to get in the way (or to tie stuff to, for that matter). That one worked out pretty well, all in all. No mysteries there.
Big flat floor, two big doors in back, two doors in front. Great (as in best in the industry) visibility in a side by side seated airplane.
The engine is a Lycoming, which I like, even with their crank problems.
Is it a 185/206 replacement? Time will tell, as the airplane gains service history.
I have minimal experience with them, and would really need to fly one at max weight for a while (I'm a slow learner :lol: ) to really tell the tale.
But, it has promise, in my opinion.
