A Christen A-1 Husky.

Christen Industries was a US aircraft manufacturer founded by Frank Louis Christensen in the late 1970s in Hollister, California to produce an aerobatic biplane of his own design in kit form, the Christen Eagle II. In November 1983, the company acquired Pitts Aerobatics, moved to Afton, Wyoming and continued production of the Pitts Special alongside the Christen Eagle II kits. The company then designed and manufactured the Christen Husky A-1 utility aircraft. Christen Industries was, in turn, bought by Aviat Aircraft, Inc. in 1991, who continued both product lines.
