Around the hangar, what are two of things pilots always need: More Cargo Space and More Gas! Hitchcock Aviation has the answer for Cub and Husky drivers. For Super Cub type aircraft, we have the Airglas Cargo, Fuel, or if you need both, combination Cargo/Fuel Pods. For The Aviat Husky we have Cargo Pods.
The pods are sealed units constructed of fiberglass and are easy to install on Cubs and Huskies. The sealed pod means the oil, fuel, and exhaust from your engine do not end up on all of your belongings whether it be food, clothing, game, or anything else you don’t want to smell or taste like the engine. The other great thing about a pod is that the weight is right under you, not back in the tail creating aft CG problems.
Take a look at the pods below and contact us with any questions you may have.

Carbon Fiber Extended Baggage for early Cessna 180’s.
The EB-180 attaches to bulkhead FS 180 at the front and the bulkhead at FS140 for the aft wall. This is the same as the factory extended baggage on later model Cessna 180’s.
The LC-18 is a great multi use unit which just got a face lift, or a payload lift anyway, with a capacity increase to 170 lbs. The side door measures 28” long and the height slopes from 9” tall in the front to 6” tall in the back. The recently added Rear Door (15” x 7”) allows long items like lumber, guns, or fishing rods to be put in the full length of the pod.
The LC-18H is the same great multi use Cargo Pod as the time tested LC-18 pod for the PA-18 with a 170 lb capacity. The LC-18H has a shim (integral to the structure of the pod) to adapt it to specifically for the belly of the Aviat Husky. The side door measures 28” long and the height slopes from 9” tall in the front to 6” tall in the back. The Rear Door (15” x 7”) allows extra long items like lumber, guns, or fishing rods to be put in the full length of the pod.
The LT-32 is an external fuel tank that is slightly smaller than the other Airglas cargo pods providing the pilot with an additional 32 gallons of fuel. Fuel is transferred into the left tank as needed by a 12 volt electric pump mounted under the rear seat. The fuel transfer is manually controlled by a switch mounted on the instrument panel.
The LTC-18 is made for the pilot that seems to always need a bit more gas and a bit more storage. The built in tank has a capacity of 18 gallons and the rest of the pod (50 lb limit) is for all your other storage needs. Fuel gets transfered into the left tank from a 12 volt electric pump mounted under the rear seat. It is manually controlled by a switch mounted on the instrument panel.
