Hi there Bill!  In this video at 3:30 Rodger mentions storing sleeping bags in the wings.  Having owned an 801 for 8 months, the one thing we'd like is more storage.  My brother and I love to do camping trips with our young kids, but right now the tent has to prop their legs up across the back leg area with sleeping bags stuffed under that.  We've been considering the detachable cargo "Pod" on the bottom, but would love to see if you do indeed have storage in the wings, and how you designed it if so!

Thank you Bill!

Bill, one of these days I am going to come back to AK to visit, and this time I am going to make it onto that beach and did clams too.  Did you see the video of the approach in my AK trip video?  We set a missed approach point up based on time or hitting minimum vis going in.

Bill;

I saw the most recent video that you made. I will be flying your way in my CH801 this summer. Do you have any good recommended places to go, tips on beach landings, etc?  Thanks

Hi Bill
My CH601HD is enroute to Alaska. I hope to have tail and Fuselage done by spring (Alaska Spring). See you when you return.

Hey Bill,

Good to hear from you! I crashed my CH-701 on Kustatan River last August. I'm in Texas until May 11 so I can't attend but thanks for the invite.

Best Regards,

Terry

Hi Bill,

Were you ever in contact with Jeff Fortune? I tried to message him on his page, but no response yet. Is he still involved with Zenair aircraft, or is he out of flying. you wouldn't happen to have his email, by any chance, would you?

We are going to be driving up there, later this summer, just by car. I wish we were flying, but not this time. Do you ferry your 801 back and forth every year, of does it stay in Alaska?

Regards

Gary
