Hi Harmen I had seen your skis last year but couldn't find them this year. I like your design from the pictures. Nice work.  Cheers Stan

Hi Harmen,
check www.macsmachine.com they make it for the 601/701 nosegear. I dont recall the price but not expensive. Especially if you prevent a propeller strike due to a bungee failure !!!
They even show you the plans to make one yourself !!!
Wasn't my cup of tea, so I bought mine from them.
Hope this helps.

Hi Harmen,

Ik zie Flying Dutchman op jouw CH701... laat dat nou ook mijn bijnaam zijn hier in Edgewater Florida.

Je hebt leuke handigheidjes in jou 701 gemonteerd, ik heb nog niet op het www gezocht maar ik ben benieuwd waar je die deur voor je tiedowns hebt gevonden ? Thanks.

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Herman Eshuis.

Hallo Harmen,


Wat aardig van je om mij welkom te heten.


Ben bezig met de afbouw (met hulp) van een CH 801, die ik in half afgebouwde staat kocht van een paar bouwers in Florida, waarna ik de kit nog liet checken/modificeren door de fabriek, en het gevaarte staat nu in Lelystad.


Zelf woon ik in Wassenaar, 60 jaar, ongeveer 6 jaar PPL gebrevetteerd; ongeveer 300 uur; en jij ?


Ben nu op zoek naar een voorbeeld van een POH (handbook); hoe heb jij dat gedaan ?


Vriendelijke groet,

Hey Harmen! Yes, i have a couple hours in it. Practiced about 7 dead sticks. Flies (lands) quite a bit different than anything else I've flown. Pretty excited about it.

I saw the video of your first flight. Nice looking plane. I have been putting some hours on mine. Right now I,m making a few minor changes, landing lights, GPS, etc.
Safe flying.

Thank you for the reply neighbor! Very nice maiden flight you had there! I would love to see your airplane sometime. I am only just beginning this journey, still have a long way to go.
