Very short landing in a Zenith 701 on a paved runway
Join Zenith Aircraft Builders and Flyers
No flaps, I was about 50MPH indicated on short final, probably 40MPH on touchdown. Engine was about 2500 RPM. Winds were light at 3MPH.
Honestly I do not look at the instruments on short final. You can feel the sink rate and you just have to look at the nose to see your attitude.
Very nice video and thanks for taking the music off so we can hear the engine and feel the wind.
Got to love the camera angle, very interesting to be able to see the landing and the pilot at the same time.
Keep them coming. Could you have a description of your settings (narrative) while you land...speed, flaps etc...
That would great .
Thanks for sharing!!
