Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your comment... I keep updating my status but sometimes Wonder if it matters much ... Anyway, lots of fun working on these planes. Good thing I got my CH701 flying while building the other ones... Keep at it, it will FLY !

Regards,

Norm

Hi Keith,
Yes I indeed, looks like we both missed our chance on the FWF recently posted. Best of luck to the Canadian who got it, but I would have loved to add it to my plane. I guess I'll have to keep looking. Glad to hear you connected to a good group. Our local eaa chapter here is similar. I just came back from the fly-in at the zenith factory in Mexico Missouri. No 801s showed up........ But was still a great trip. I'm making slow progress. Just about ready for riveting the fuselage sections together.

Daniel, I see that you where after the firewall forward gear being sold in Utah, as I was !!. Would have been a great way to get a head start on the build but it's going to Canada I believe, I have joined the Sport Aircraft association of Australia which will help with licensing and testing etc on the 801. Also joining the Sport aircraft Builders club of Western Australia , small bitumen airstrip an hour away. No build progress as we have been 4WDriving up north for 2 weeks and still researching.  Keith McEwan

Daniel, Thanks for the contact, I'm glad there are others on the same journey. I've never had two wings sitting in the lounge room before but they look good.  My intention is a relaxed build over a couple of years to allow time to learn the new skills needed and do as good a job as I can, being a first timer.Mine is complete except for the fwf and avionics, cabin trim etc, it has been assembled at one time. Look forward to keeping in touch. Keith Mcewan
