Flying the SAM Aircraft for the first time

Posted on February 18, 2016 at 3:30pm 16 Comments

Since announcing that we'd purchased the assets of SAM Aircraft earlier this year, Zenith Aircraft demo pilot Roger Dubbert and I recently traveled to Zenair Ltd. in Midland, Ontario, Canada to fly the prototype aircraft (that my brother Nicholas had previously flown back from Quebec). The purpose of…

Sebring 2016

Posted on January 27, 2016 at 3:30pm 8 Comments

Here are a few photos and videos of the trip to and from the Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, January 20 - 23, 2016, in Sebring (central Florida).

For us, the trip itself is usually the highlight of attending these shows, and the trip allows us to spend quality time flying the planes that we spend our days building, and allows us to experience first-hand the cross-country capability of our fun light airplanes. (To this…

EAA One Week Wonder on Tour in Central Florida: March 2015

Posted on February 26, 2015 at 4:30pm 7 Comments

Here's a summary of my three days with the EAA One Week Wonder airplane in central Florida earlier this week. 

On Wednesday, we flew by the shortest paved runway (a nice R/C field, just a few hundred feet long) and later that night I had the chance to fly over the longest runway I'd ever seen (NASA's shuttle landing runway at Kennedy Space Center, three miles long!).…

Thanks for the warm welcome!  As you've suggested, I've kicked off a blog with a first post today.  I'm totally new to blogging so we'll see how this goes.

Our EAA chapter is grateful for the excellent support we have been provided by the factory.  What a wonderful opportunity this "Gift of Wings" has given our EAA chapter.  Thank you!

Regards,

Mark Briggs

Hi Sebastien

Just saying a quick hello and also wondering how your Dad is these days. It sure would be nice to have him say hello on this forum and tell us what he is up to of late. I was lunching in KFC in Tasmania Australia the other day and a gent sat down that in my mind very closely resembled Chris and so I wondered how he was. Though I have sold my plane, I still peruse the forum when I get the chance to stay up to date with new developments. I will someday soon be plans building the 750 Cruzer. I think that you have ticked a lot of boxes with this design and congratulate you.

Say Hi to the pioneer for me.

Hi Sebastian. I am much better, I hope you continue with your dream. Big Hug.

Hi Sebastien,

Had I lived closer to most members, I might make upgrade kits for CH 701 with a (downloadable?) 'how to' manual complete with photos, drawings and videos on flight testing. With everything shown for DIY, many will want to just put cut and formed parts together the most expeditious way.

But as is, I'd rather have you do it, if you want to.   ;^)

As a retiree, building CH 701 is a very good hobby. I like it since my first flight with the previous owner in Puerto Rico. If the Honda Viking can make good record here, my third Zenith airplane might be another roomy (modified) CH 701 to take up my huge sons.

Glad to see you will be working on a headroom mod for the 701 too!

Let me know when you get that done and I will be one of your 1st customers to order it.

Hi Mr Heinz,

I have a question if I may... I have a CH701 and I asked for a 1200lbs gross instead of the usual 1100 lbs. Since it's a NEW AIRPLANE (amateur built in Canada) the MD-RA inspector (for amateur built) requested a letter from the designer (or representative) stating it can be flown at 1200 lbs GW  - but that the load factor/limit will be affected... Plans for the CH701 already states that and show the calculation in such a case. I sent him a copy of the page but that won't do. I also sent him a copy of the Canadian Aircraft Registration table showing CH701s already approved at 1200lbs (and sometimes more) and still it won't do.  

Is there such a document stating that the CH701 can be flown at 1200 lbs provided the pilot is aware that load limits will go from +6/-3 G downt to +5.5/-2.8 G ? 

 

The inspector told me I could register the plane at 1100lbs and after request an upgrade to 1200lbs to Transpost Canada which will be given right away. The inspector doesn't want to do it without the Letter because it will be on his head and if T.C. does it, he stays in the clear.

 

If I can't get the Letter, I'll have to refile all paperwork, get my flight permit and ask for the increased GW afterwards... Delays, Delays, bureaucraty and such...

 

I Know of quite a few builders that have requested 1200lbs from the start and were never bothered with this...

 

Can you help ?

HI Sebastien  I was the guy who was talking to you with my wife at Sunnfun just before the storm hit. I just spent 1 week in midland learning the procedures to put together my 801.
