A journey that began in the middle of June ended yesterday when I received my ASEL endorsement on my LSA license. I had been licensed for almost a year for PPC when I got the bug for fixed wing (always had the bug). I began flight lessons in June, and purchased my Zenith CH701 in August.
The lessons continued in the 701 with Mr. Ed Athey who was very patient with this "old guy". He was encouraging at all times, even when I got discouraged. Ed has over 30,000 hours of safe flying…Continue

Today was the first day I have flown since November 30th. I did my solo cross country that day. Shortly after that I had to have emergency gall bladder removal, so I was out of commisison for a while. Then cold, wet weather. Today was beautiful, and perfect flying weather. Flew a total of two hours and was ready for more. Tomorrow is my check ride with CFI #2 who will endorse my logbook and I will be officially LSA ASEL and PPCL.

Hello Joe, im new here looking for a nice 701. Let me know if you know of someone.Thanks,Stan
They are now carrying the needed size again 1" X 7/16" for the T-bar
That is a great setup you have living next to an airfield. I live 8 minutes away from my hangar and the airfield.
Hello Joe, I just joined the site. Completing a 701 for use in Ghana, West Africa where I've been for the last four years. You are my first "friend" on the site. Notice you are from Kingsport, TN. Lived in Manchester, TN for several years after the Air Force in the mid seventies. I'm from Staunton, VA just a short drive from you up I-81. I hope to be able to ship the 701 by mid-November. Thanks for the invite. Check out my 701 photo, the yellow is close to yours. Jim
The heavy aileron in high winds is an interesting observation. I've been in 30MPH headwinds, but have not noticed the controls being heavy.
