An overview on how I came to a decision on what airplane to build. It wasn’t easy and I probably could have spent years researching and flip flopping. At some point you need to step up to the plate and swing for the fence.
The Zenith Aircraft Kit and other planes I talked about in this video can be researched and kits can be purchased at:
Be sure to ping me with comments and questions.
Nice video! I’m confident you’ll be happy with your decision and that you’ll really enjoy both building and flying the Zenith CH 750 Cruzer. I’ve just recently returned from Sun’n Fun where I flew the Cruzer ten hours each way (from the factory in Mexico, Missouri) and had a thoroughly good time flying the Cruzer. See my blog (with videos) of the trip: http://www.zenith.aero/profiles/blogs/snf-2017
I love the in flight videos. Hoping to see a lot more from people as more Cruzers get finished and flying. Please do more of these and let me know how I can help Zenith. I’m thrilled with my choice so far and love being a member of the Zenith community.
Great job Michael. I went through nearly the same elimination process myself. Great choice!
Thanks! Video work is a new learning curve but it’s getting easier all the time.
Good job on the video
I also had a hard time when I got down to two planes. I did build the Cruzer. The build took a little over two years to finish. I never did total my build time,I’m sure it was way way over the projected hrs that Zenith claims. I was a first time builder so it didn’t go as fast. I now have over 125 hrs in flight. I have been getting my student light sport hours built up. I have finished my solo cross country and will soon finish up the other requirements. I went with the Viking 110 engine. I don’t regret this choice. It runs great and has plenty of power. You can’t beat a Honda. As to date I may be the first Cruzer flying on the west coast.
