haven't posted much in a while because I have had my head down trying get my CH750 done and flying. It is mostly plans built with the steel parts and finishing kit from Zenith. This is the 4th one completed out of the six of us here in Lethbridge, Alberta who have worked co-operatively to build our own fleet of 750s. We built the first part on February 28, 2009 and I made the first flight last Sunday evening (June 26, 2016). I am a VERY slow builder; it took me 4802 hours to build it. It features, a Rotax 912iS, Garmin G3X Touch Avionics package, and no slats.

First flight was uneventful (thankfully!) and even though I still have less than a hour on it, I LOVE this plane! I could say a lot more but time is in short supply right now - I have to fly 25 hours off quickly if I am going to make Oshkosh this year.

Here is a video each of the first take-off and landing.

Just realised I never congratulated you on your first flight, so excited that you had finished.
