I have finished my 701 and am getting ready for the DAR. I am now hoping to find someone that is flying a 701 that is willing to do some transition work with me. I have been flying since the early 60's, got my private in J-3s, owned a Yankee American for about 10 years, since then I have been flying Cessna's ususally the 150-152s but in the past was checked out in 172s.
My 701 has a Rotax 912s, Dynon 180, X-Com, Becker TP, and is backed up with a VSI, ALT, SI, TACH which are…Continue

The Turbine Zenith 701 (742DE) flew over 1200 miles at 300’ over Lake Livingston last week in an attempt to locate a lost fisherman. We unfortunately did not save a life this time but I was sure impressed with the utility of the 701 to perform this type of search. It was gratifying to be able to help and I would recommend that all of you that have 701/750 consider letting local law enforcement know if you have time to volunteer.

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

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?
