Just started my CH750 Cruzer project. Just curious - anyone out there considering (or using) a Lycoming 233 LSA for your CH750 aircraft?
Best Regards to All.
Im an older, experienced pilot who re-entered flying in a light sport aircraft, a nicely restored Aeronca Chief. Now I'm ready for something to spread my wings a little further and I really like the 601-650 series, particularly with the Continental 100HP engine as I'm experienced with a similar Continental 75 hp in the Aeronca. I have the Aeronca up for sale now but I don't plan to wait till it sells to move up. I have the funds, I'm in good health, great fall…Continue
Completed CH750 Cruzer Rudder at 8/20/15 workshop. Well worth traveling out to Mexico MO to tour the factory, get a demo ride, and start building the aircraft. Many thanks to Steve, Roger, and Sebastian for their assistance and hospitality. Onto to the next component kit!
Last Thursday Tom left the hospital and was moved to a rehab center, which means when he proves he can take care of himself he will be on his way home.
This whole episode has proved one thing to me. Do your research, choose a plane which meets your needs, choose a company that will back you, choose an engine that’s proven, and follow the plans. Than you can post what RW Hunker did (1000 hrs. and 15 years). What more can you ask?
Building my fuselage in Phx. Az. Really hot, dripped sweat, "one drop" on skin. Tried to wipe off with rag. Didn't come off. I think it etched into the aluminum. I wiped off with lacquer thinner and it took it down to a dark metal finish. Will coating it with zinc-chromate primer keep the spot from getting worse?
Thanks to all who participated at the 24th annual Zenith Aircraft Open Hangar Day and Fly-In 2015. Great planes and awesome company! Check out the photos of the activities, including the STOL Competition, the Zenith Banquet and the Open Hangar Day!

Not sure if this is a proper post but guess it will be deleted if NOT. Is there anyone who would be willing to fly a 601 From Central Mississippi to Central Mo.
Dear Zenithaero Members,
Tom based his plane at Queen City Airport (XLL) in low wind conditions runway 25 is used for standard departures than for noise abatement follow I78 west. The air park is surrounded with developments and a long narrow stretch which is part of Allentown park system. At the time Tom was climbing out his engine failed, giving him only two choices I78 or the park system. It seems he chose the latter. Descending through the trees and into stream Tom took one hell…Continue
On the night of August 11th at about 9:30 PM a strong storm hit the Chandler Airport. 30 planes were damaged or destroyed. Aircraft parts were littering the ramp. I saw radios, fiberglass wing tips, seat belts, nose gear with wheel, etc. One of the flight schools lost all 6 planes that it had stationed at KCHD. One was thrown about 50 yards and over a fence into the parking lot.
Several of the planes still had the tie down chains attached to their wings. Either the…Continue
