Quality Sport Planes OPEN HOUSE and West Coast Zenith Fly-In 2017

I'm posting this a little late, but here's a video recap of the May 2017 Quality Sport Planes OPEN HOUSE and West Coast Zenith Fly-In, hosted by Doug Dugger at his facility at the Cloverdale Municipal Airport in Cloverdale, California (about an hour north of San Francisco).

Below, flying in Doug's newly completed Zenith CH 750 Cruzer powered by a Lycoming engine:

Below, more highlights from this year's Open House and West Coast Zenith Fly-In hosted by Quality Sport Planes.

Saturday, May 13, 2017 at the Cloverdale Municipal Airport in northern California. 

We had even more fun the following day, flying northwest to the Pacific coastline: 

Above: I flew with Doug in his Zenith STOL CH 750 "Sky Jeep" from Cloverdale to Little River (Mendocino) on the Pacific coast of northern California, along with Steve Smith in his Zenith CH 601 XL-B. Many of you know Steve Smith from his amazing photos of his many long cross-country trips in his Zenith.

Next, we flew north from Little River (Mendocino) along the Pacific Coast and then back to Ukiah for lunch:

After our taco lunch in Ukiah (next to the airport), we flew back to Cloverdale (via Clear Lake) in scenic northern California, along with Steve Smith in his Zenith CH 601 XL-B. I forgot to check the camera settings on the Garmin VIRB, and I ended up with time-lapse photography instead of video :/

What fun I had flying with Doug and Steve! Thanks for such a memorable experience!

Thanks Doug for hosting a great event, and for all you work supporting Zenith builders and owners on the West Coast!

We had a great time at Doug's QSP Open House this year! The weather was perfect and there was lots of "show and tell."
