Great article from a fantastic young man about building his own Zenith STOL CH 750 and learning to fly in his teens (published in “The Transponder”, the quarterly publication of the Alaska Airmen’s Association).
I love the quote: "A photo of my Zenith STOL CH 750 is attached, except for the wings, they are in the dining room and kitchen. I am literally surrounded by aviation. Airplane parts and tools litter my surroundings, and I love it."
