The open hanger day at Quality Sport Planes was a success and it was great to have Sebastien and Roger there. Christopher and I had to twist their arms very hard to get them to spend the day sunday on the river (ha ha) Sebastien and I took the CH 750 while Christopher and Roger flew in Christopher's 701 - we had a blast. It was the first time I have taken the 750 out to rock and gravel bars on the river its performance closely matched my 701: no more worries on how it handles short rough landing areas. Will post some pics soon.

I thought the one on the right was an 801 due to the 4 fuel caps.

On the left is Doug Dugger's stock STOL CH 750 (with Jabiru 3300) and on the right is Christopher Desmond's custom-built STOL CH 701 (with Rotax 912 ULS) on 26-inch Alaska Bushwheels.  I'll share some awesome video footage soon.

Now that is what these aircraft were meant to do! Great Times!

I believe Doug is a 701 man.

Once again I am the victim of Zenith envy. :)

Hope I get to set up a tent under my 701 wing someday (need to order an engine first though).
