I recently visited Bob B in Arizona to perform the first flight of his Zenith STOL CH 701.

Below are a couple videos of me inspecting and test flying this new customer-built STOL CH 701 from a Zenith kit. I hope you find them useful.

Before the first flight, it's equally important to perform a very thorough inspection of the entire airplane and its systems. The following video is just a quick summary of the walk-around inspection:

As someone hopefully getting to that point next year, I loved these two videos. Inspirational to see when feeling a bit deflated about my own progress.

Congrats to Bob on a great looking plane
