Looking for Zenair Flyers in New York and New Jersey

Hi fellow Zenair Pilots

I just moved to the New York City and I am looking for fellow ZENAIR pilots and builders in the area.

Planning to have my 701 shipped from Europe back to the U.S. and I am looking for an all-year tie down spot around NYC City or in New Jersey - grass strip would also be fine.

Any tips welcome - thanks for your inputs and hope to see you soon up in the air.

Shipping a CH 701 in a container from Europe to the U.S.


Just moved to the U.S. and start missing my 701 still sitting in beautiful Switzerland... Planning to ship the airplane to NYC in a container. Any of you experienced in demounting a 701 to fit in a 20 ft container ? Any advise on preparing the engine (Rotax 912 100 hp) for the shipment ?

The tail section is already demounted, I guess there is not much more to do than unmounting the wings and tie down the plane in the container.

Any advise…
