Have moved my 601xlb powered by a Viking 130 turning a 3 bladed Whirlwind from a hangar at Gimlin airport 18MO to shade hangar at Sullivan airport KUUV. Have a little over 200 hours on the 601 and a little over 150 hours with the Viking. any boby in the Sullivan, Missouri area that wants to talk airplane
Hope to see you guys contribute to get to 100 real quick. Then on to 150 and the next prize. All contributors are eligible at each drawing, well except me - insert frowny face here...
Working with vendors to get free prizes, its all in fun, and I don't get anything, except the satisfaction of helping my fellow builders and flyers. Spread the word to your Zenith friends. If anyone gets this, its Jacky Winter's. Thanks Jacky for all that you have done for us builders and pilots, Like Tim said below, I believe you will be appreciated for many years to come.
Are you still keeping the map up to date. I submitted my info at least a month ago and others have submitted it more recently. It is a great service to the members but if you are now longer doing it, maybe someone else can take it on. Please let me know.
I saw Paul Sander's STOL location map and the recent comments. I don't know if I had the courtesy to thank you for your effort at the time but let me do so now. Thank you for making the 600 series map, your efforts will, I'm sure, be even more appreciated by me in years to come.
hi jack, the half moon over the baggage opening is so my other half will have some where to rest her head when sleeping. it is padded too. you have a sharp eye i even put in tear drop windows on the sides to see in the baggage area.
Jacky I do have a 0200 powered 601xlb It is a older 0200 1972 was date of birth on this engine it flys the 601 very well although it does not go as fast as the jab powered 601 that Stephen Smith (who flys a lot with me) has. My fast go go speed is about 125 mph but I usaly fly around 110 to save fuel. Climb out fully loaded is around 700-800 fpm at sea level. Cloverdale CA (O60) is at 300 ft asl and my home airport at Rancho Tehama is 550 ft (49CN) in northern calif. Downwind is at 70 mph base to final is 65 mph and across the # at 55mph 10% flaps. Hope this helps call if you like and will be happy to talk
My project is actually not in Charlottesville. It's in Wingina VA (Nelson County). That's where I'll be this Saturday. It's an hour south of Charlottesville. The address is 782 Midway Mills Lane, Wingina VA 24599. My phone number there is 434-263-8521, my number here is 434-975-6410. It's out of the way, but you're certainly welcome to stop by.
