Zenith Aircraft Company has introduced a new Quick Build Kit (QBK) for its low-wing Zenith CH 650 cruiser Light Sport kit aircraft. With the QBK, the main fuselage portion of the all-metal aircraft is first assembled at the factory, resulting in reduced build time. The factory now also installs a bubble canopy and the cabin frame to make build time shorter.
The Zenith CH 650 is a second-generation Light Sport Aircraft design developed specifically for Sport Pilots. This model offers features such as a larger cabin area and new bubble canopy. Standard features include wing baggage lockers, dual welded-aluminum fuel tanks and choice of landing gear configuration (trigear or taildragger). Builders can choose from a variety of engines and firewall-forward packages.
The base price for the Zenith CH 650 QBK is $22,950, which is $4450 more than the cost of the CH 650 base kit. Zenith also sells component kits to builders, or the aircraft can be scratch-built from plans.
