Sebastian and Roger from the Zenith Aircraft factory (Mexico, Missouri) fly the Zodiac XL demo plane to visit the JabiruUSA gang in Shelbyville (Tennessee). The flight was about 390 miles (each way), or a little under 3 hours. The demonstrator Zodiac XL N9601Z passed 1,300 hours total time on the tach, powered by the 6-cylinder Jabiru 3300 engine. At Jabiru USA, Roger and Sebastian flew and evaluated a high-wing STOL CH 701 sport utility kit plane powered by the 4-cylinder Jabiru 2200 engine (see separate video). This video really shows off the amazing 360-degree visibility under the gorgeous bubble canopy, taken with a wide-angle lens.
