Does anyone know of a good source of information or drawings of Helio Courier wings and slats?

Hi Mike,

There's a local fella here in Oshkosh that is an expert on all things Helio.  I don't want to post his contact info here, but if you shoot me a message at zbaughman@eaa.org, I can connect the two of you.

Mike,

 

Get a copy of "The Helio Courier" from Frank Joseph Rowe, McFarland publishers.  Some details here, but no drawings.

 

Call JAARS in Waxhaw, NC.  They have (had) the largest fleet of Couriers and still fly Old Number One.  They regularly rebuild wings and probably have details you'd need.  Try 704-843-6172.

If you have general interest in high-lift, STOL, slats, etc. maybe I can help you as I have been around these things for 30 years.  Contact me offline, kmisegades@bellsouth.net
