Mike Wilson and wife have flown Viking engines for several years in Thailand and own several of them. The engines are in the CH-750 CruZer aircraft and also in the CH-701. They also fly a CH-601XL.
"The first 130 in Thailand flies. Wow what a difference, impressive to say the…

The feeling is still sinking in that after seven years of building I actually flew a plane that I built myself. Like my brother in law said last night "to think when you started you didn't know the difference between a screw and a bolt" so I really never thought I'd get past the rudder, let alone have something that flies.
I had originally planned to have Roger do the first flight so that he could look the plane over but scheduling issues meant that I didn't want to wait,…Continue

While working on the center spar I had needed to attach the doublers. The problem is that the body of the centerspar had 1/4 inch holes already drilled into them, but the doublers only had 3/32 starter holes. It is no problem drilling out the first hole to 1/4", but how do I make sure that I am centered as closely as possible over the other other 1/4" hole.…Continue

Aside from the changes that come with the Super Duty (SD) design (i.e. longer wing, higher GW, larger engine options, 3rd seat, etc...) what else would you like to see in an "SD Cruzer" that the current Cruzer does not have?
Sharlene Stapleton created this custom quilt in recognition of Zenith Aircraft's 25th anniversary! The colorful quilt features the official 25th anniversary t-shirt artwork in the center surrounded by the hand-embroidered first names of Zenith Aircraft…Continue
I attended the workshop a few weekends ago and my recommendation, if you have not been, is to sign up NOW...you will have a blast! The crew at Zenith starting with Sebastian to Roger, to Steve, to Joyce, and the whole factory are just wonderful. They will answer all your questions, show you anything you're interested in, and give you a terrific flight in one of their demo planes. Well worth the time and highly recommended!
