I've just returned from a short trip to Brazil to visit the Zenith Aircraft dealer AVIAÇÃO Brasileira Ltda.
One of the highlights of my trip was the opportunity to fly Waldomiro's recently completed STOL CH 750 (called Cherry Red) in Atibaia (São Paulo).
Here's a video clip:
Jean is very well organized in his workshop to hold monthly "rudder assembly workshops" just like we do here at Zenith Aircraft. Click here for workshop photos from Brazil. Click the photo below for a Video Clip of Jean walking you through his workshop:
The Brazilian aircraft fleet is one of the largest around the world, with more than 10,000 aircraft flying, and the fleet continues to grow thanks to a strong economy. There is a light aircraft category similar to Light Sport Aircraft, and the "amateur-built - experimental" category is thriving in Brazil.
Below, my brother Mat (left) and me with Jean Mikellides and a completed rudder assembly.
Thanks for the great hospitality in Brazil!
