Aviat Husky with compressed natural gas

The first airplane powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) is being unveiled at EAA AirVenture after flying more than 1,000 miles from Afton, Wyo.

The Aviat Husky with a 200-horsepower Lycoming engine is the first aircraft that can run on avgas or CNG, and the change can be made with the flick of a switch in the cockpit.
