We arrived early with trailers and tools only to find all the damaged aircraft had been removed from the booth. Finally found them and began the recovery process. We disassembled the CH750 and moved it to FlightCrafters in Zephyrhills, FL. From there we will do a more extensive survey of the damage. Sebastien, Roger, and Caleb are working up a plane to repair and replace. I am sure they will be back in the air ASAP.
Sun n Fun (not wanting to miss any revenue) opened at…Continue
Sure wish I could just say April Fools! and the whole mess would go away.
On the way back to Sun n Fun with trailers and tools.
Will send an update later this evening.

It will go down as one heck of a show! Rain Monday. Rain Wednesday. And Rain and tornado on Thursday. Everyone on the stand saw the bad weather coming and ran for cover. When we came back the tent was gone and airplanes were destroyed. Bob McDowel's Lil Beaver survived without a scratch but the CH701 parked behind it was destroyed. Bob was seen buying a lottery ticket ( it must be his day of luck). The new CH650 demonstrator also survived without a scratch. Flightcrafters quick build…Continue
Although I am still in Afghanistan, I ordered my rudder kit and reserved my rudder workshop space for the June session. A few months ago I order the rudder DVD from HomeBuiltHelp.com and have watched it numerous times at my base when I was off duty. I am eager to return to the United States, meet other Zenith owners, build my rudder at Zenith in June, spend a few more days at American Light Sport Aircrafters down the road from Zenith (maybe building the stabilizer or anything else), then…Continue
Does anyone out there have a used canopy for a 601XL in good condition that they would like to sell?

Does anyone have any experience or info on using a 582 in a CH 701?
Yesterday we had another visit from Sebastien, Caleb, and Roger from Zenith along with all of the Rudder workshop attendee's.
We have begun hosting a luncheon for each of the rudder workshops which gives the builders a chance to see other projects being worked on and hopefully gives them some ideas of their own.
It's not like the free vacation with the 2 hr, high pressure sales pitch for a time share at the end.
This truly is a FREE LUNCH!
So, if you are planning…Continue
Had a beautiful day on wednesday 65 degrees and clear skies so opened the hangar and brought out the plane for a short hop after the long winter.
Preflight went normal and I got airborne without a hitch, climbed out and flew for about 45 minutes and CHT temps seemed to be lowering, noted the oil temp seemed to be getting a little hoter than normal so I returned to the field and landed, went into the restraunt for a bowl of soup and when I came out there was oil all over the ground…Continue
