Seeking Demo Flight

Hello Cruzer owners:

I am a 701 pilot and owner who would like to get a demo flight in a Cruzer, and I am willing to pay.  I live in Tucson AZ, and will travel, since I can't find a flying Cruzer here.  Somewhere in the southwest US would be preferable.  Please contact me through this site if you can help me out on this, or give me a call at 520 907 6500.

Thanks,

Phil

Boatyard Move

I got the beast out of my garage into a 30x20x12 area at a local boatyard. Hangar space in N. TX is virtually non existent ... 2-3 year waiting lists. This is one of the reasons I chose the 701 with the folding wing option.

I've just completed installing the wings, struts, and jury struts and am able to roll the beast in and out of the storage area. I constructed 3 adjustable wing-tip stands for the fold/un-fold operations. However is is still a trying exercise for one person…

Picked up Cruzer Tail Kit Today

I picked up the Cruzer tail kit today at the factory! The staff there are all great! Joyce was a pleasure to meet, Steve gave a great tour of the factory and answered all questions, Roger gave me and my son a great Demo ride! I didn't catch the gentleman's name that helped load my truck but he was great also. i was very pleased how the parts were either boxed or wrapped in paper. Inventory was complete! Now just need to star building.

Volcano Run!

I finally got the opportunity to do an adventure I had often thought of; a flight past the many volcanic mountain peaks on the west coast.

I had flown to Washington to visit my brother, who also owns a 601XLB. After a week in the rainy northwest it was time to return home to Santa Rosa, CA.…

Solidworks is great but...
