It’s official, we are building the Zenith Zodiac 650B (shown below).
Cheryl, my dad, and myself went down to Mexico, MO for a workshop and a test flight at Zenith Aircraft. The crew at Zenith Aircraft Company was really helpful and a lot of fun to hang out with. We learned a lot and made some new friends. We can’t wait to go down and see them again.
The flight test confirmed what we all thought, This is a great airplane. Very easy to fly, with good slow flight characteristics. The UL engine has lots of power and is very smooth and quiet. Visibility out of the bubble canopy is nothing short of amazing, especially if one is coming from Cessna and Piper worlds. This was Cheryl’s first flight in a light aircraft and loved it! Roger of Zenith really helped explain my passion for aviation by example. Thanks Zenith!
My Father bought me the tool Kit that has most of the specialty tools that will be needed to build this… Thanks pops! And Cheryl and I bought the Plans and building instructions and the tail kit. We are very excited to be starting. It is now time to get the garage prepped and organized…. and continue to save money for the next kit.
