Needed: half a 650 canopy

Posted on April 23, 2013 at 7:19pm 1 Comment

So I trimmed too much off my canopy. I cut off too much of the back then realized what was left was too wide to fit the aft fuselage skin. The front half would work but I don't have a usable back half. Anyone been in my situation but needed only a front half? I was hoping someone would sell their aft portion rather than paying for a whole new plexiglass.

Please help a Zenith builder with a grad school project!!

I am working on a graduate capstone project for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I need to collect some survey responses from current or future airplane owners. THAT IS YOU!

This directly relates to General Aviation and the Next Generation of Airspace in the United States. Please help my research out. Any builder in any phase of building or ownership can participate:

No, only made it to ROTC and a wife intervened.  My uncle is a retired B-52 pilot and was the person who got me interested in flying.  Also, my friend Jeff is a retired Col. who was at Offut and is the guy supervising all the electronics work.  He is building a Pober Jr. Ace.  We both hope to fly by end of summer.

Glad to have you on as a friend.  Are you at Offut?

Christopher, my glareshield consists of rubber trim covering the sharp rear edge and I bought it from Zenith. The black area in front of that up to the canopy line is Rustoleum black black spray paint.
