She remembers the dreaded "Cone of Shame"My wife (appropriately named Amelia) and I drug home a Zenith 701 kit in the Spring of 2016 and we spent most every weekend for the subsequent three years building it. Got the Airworthiness cert in the Summer of 2019. Been flying it as much as life and the weather in North Alabama allow, which turns out to be about once every other weekend, since. It seemed quirky at first but now that I’ve got a hundred hours in it I really enjoy it, especially doors off. Hangar it and fly it out of our 1,100 ft. back yard farm strip. Mature trees at both ends. Rotax 912, 80 hp. I’m still working full time so about 50 hours a year is the most flying I can squeeze in. This is one of our Redbones. She knows she’s going to the vet and stayed frozen in that “braced for impact position“ the entire trip.
