Enjoyed my time at the Zenith hangar days 2009, fist time back since I picked up my kit in 2000. Appreciated all of the events that the factory folks provided, obtained lots of information from various folks and vendors and met a lot of really nice people. Thanks to Nick for giving me the 801 instructional ride prior to my first flight, I have a lot better idea of what to expect and am sure the first flight will be exciting. I had just completed my bi-annual flight review in a cessna 172 prior to going to hangar days and I believe the 801 was more stable and easier to fly that the 172, what a surprise....I like it! Now if only I can get my fiberglass man to get off dead center and finish the cowl we can get on with the flying.

As suggested we will be installing the VG's on the tail this week as I have the old short tail.
