    Remarks

    Hillers are great helicopters and this is a beautiful example of it! With the increased horsepower of the 235 hp mod this makes for a fine flier!  My daughter is away at college and I find I need to transition back to fixed wing flying for long distance commuting/cross country flying.  Unfortunately the Hiller has to go. I am selling this as a package deal: helicopter, custom tilt trailer, ground handling cart and wheels.  Ready to transport!
