Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Checking out the long runway at Reno International Airport (RNO) with our Zenith light sport aircraft. Runway 16L is "short" for smaller planes (at 9,000-ft). Lake Tahoe / Reno is a beautiful area for (altitude) flying with a great mix of mountains and desert, and "big city" airports and dirt strips. The Zenith 601 / CH650-B with just 100-hp Continental is very capable at high altitudes (5,000 ft. and above).
