After 10 enjoyable years of on and off building, my plans built Zenith CH701 aircraft received its airworthiness certificate on March 10, 2011 and took to the air on March 11. It flies great! With a good used Continental O-200-A engine and a simple panel, it is a very inexpensive airplane that is really fun to fly. I would like to thank Chris Heintz for the design. With his designs, anyone with a pair of tin snips, a 4ft bending brake and the discipline to build can have an airplane. I received much help from Carl Ritter, my friend and Technical Advisor from EAA chapter 111, and from my brother Steve who helped me paint the airplane and provided an extra set of capable hands whenever needed. Thanks to my wife Barb for her love and support.
