Building and Flying Info / Your Profession / Other Background Info
16,000.hrs. Retired Navy Pilot, Airline Transport Pilot and CFII. I have flown my CH 750 210+ hrs and have a flown 190 + passengers. Most passengers were kids and the trips were 15 minutes... HOW FUN IS THAT !!!!
I like the wheel pants. Caleb told me months ago the wheel pants would provide increased cruising speed. Could you give me some info on the pants, like where you got them, cost, etc. What size tires are you using with the pants ? I've already went to the smaller tires, but really am interested in installation of wheel pants.
I am considering putting spats on my 750 ala Maule would you have some words of wisdom on the method of attaching. Those wheel pants look great. I am basically looking for debris deflection on the wings. I fly off my grass strip MU83.
I noticed the picture of your Rotax powered 750 on the other Zenith site. Beautiful job. It looks like you are either done, or close to being done. Have you flown it yet? There are quite a few of us out here who are really interested in getting some feedback on performance/handling of a Rotax powered 750.
