Harris Woods and his legacy.


I cannot talk about Woods Aviation without paying homage to Harris Woods.  "Woody's" passion for aviation and natural mechanical abilities made him a prolific aeronautical engineer and designer.  In his career he worked for Piasecki, McDonnell, North America, Lockheed, Bell, and Bensen Aircraft.  Harris Woods eventually formed Aerosport, Inc. and designed and flew eleven of his own designs (including the ever-popular Woody Pusher).  Read more below by clicking the images.
