A Capt.Dick Birch and I flew this aircraft in 1961 at Malstrom AFB, Mt. As far as Iknow I was one of the first and probably the first USAF pilot to fly one. The USAF wanted it for Missile crewmembers to fly back and forth to MINUTEMAN missile site. I still have a check list I think. It was called the L-28 when I flew it.It could slow fly at 27 kts. Max ceiling was 18000 ft. and it got 13 miles per gallon for a range of 900 miles.The USAF replaced it with L-20 BEAVERS which were replaced by H-19 Helicopters after a non rated missile crew crashed oneabout 1962.The Helio was made in Pittsburg.

U.S. Air Force version was designated the U-10, mostly U-10Ds. Aircraft flew primarily in Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia,some under the Air America banner. Some served in other countries including South America, Phillipines, etc. Those in Laos and Cambodia had no markings. Terrific performing aircraft using unimproved strips in all sorts of weather. I still have the flight manuals.

Helio also produced the Super Courier in a Tri-Gear configuration (very few mfg). My wife and I commuted daily in our Tri-Gear from CA to AZ for 3+ years. Bulletproof single engine commuter.
