Its Not A Zenith...."Son of A Zenith ?"

Walking across the tarmac today, it struck me that Zenith isn't the only builder fond of square fuselage structures, STOL performance and rugged utility aircraft design. Its so ugly it doesn't fly... the earth repels it !

Old Style Trigear Amphib Floats

Posted on March 4, 2016 at 10:23am 5 Comments

http://www.zenithair.com/zodiac/pics/6-fl.jpg" />

Does anyone have a set of the older style CH701 / CH601HD Zenith / CZAW floats?

I'm bored these days without a project, so I'm thinking my CH601HD would be cool to fly on floats. Anyone have a drawing for the front steerable nose gear. If I remember these were compressed air…

Thank you for your concern... I am alive and still kicking :>)
I kind of stepped away from all my normal activities (except work) last October when my father "Robert Bruce McDonald" was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gerhig's) disease.
At 85 yrs. the progression of this disease was very rapid. He was unable to walk after Jan.2014, and almost totally paralyzed and unable to speak by May 2014. He passed away June 07, 2014 aged 86 yrs.
His only request was to stay…

Here is a gently used Rotax 912 80 hp for sale.

http://upac.ca/classifieds/ads/rotax-912-ul-80hp/

I know the owner and aircraft history. Its good.

The Rotax 912 80 hp is great engine for the CH701 or CH601HD series aircraft. I have flown both models with the 80 hp Rotax and they fly great.

Hello Bob,

Just noticed another one of your comment on the internet about the Pegazair.  For your info the company still exists and is thriving, their "Pegazair" still performs incredibly and  they now produce a 4 seat version called the "Levitation" with a useful load of around a thousand pounds with 180hp Lycoming.  Just thought I should give you the correct information so you could pass it on correctly.

Cheers, Jules

Hi Bob,

Yeah, I know .... Got the 'PLANE BUG' !!! Really wanted to get my hands on a CH750 but got a deal for the CH701SP and CH750 altogether...Couldn't pass. Will most probably sell the CH701SP project and finish up the CH750.

Couldn't resist any longer !

Take care !

Bob, sorry for the loss of your father. My plane is safe and tucked away until the flock returns to Canada. I do fear that they may bring down an airliner landing at Allentown airport. I am also getting to the age when one should give up flying. As of now I can still handle short strips. You can see my strip on maps or Google earth. 3224 sterner road Nazareth pa. Temos
