I was lucky enough to have been a part of a special day yesterday (Saturday  2nd of January) when on his sixteenth birthday, Ross Brodie flew solo for the first time. more than that he flew sixteen different aircraft in the course of the day including (to keep on topic) my CH701. it was a special day with many well wishers present at Rangitata island airfield here in New Zealand, an impressive effort from a class act young man.

Good to see a new member in NZ although its not an extra aircraft in the NZ fleet.

Re the vineyard, I havent measured the distance, I drove my car down it at speed before hand and knew it was plenty long enough - it was just so small and narrow from the air - compared with Omaka with its 1300m grass strip in a paddock almost as wide as it is long.-  Id guess at about 250 - 300m for the level area in the photo - will actually go and measure it sometime - count the posts, but I could have safey had half the length that still morning after landing on the mark and not really braking except tp park.

 

Have you seen this website http://www.acomodata.com/zenair701/index.htm - my bible!

 

emial me on    jstruthers at glenhill dot co dot nz     and I'll introduce you to our informal "701 club" leader.  Will be nice to have another south islander on board
