Turbine Zenith 701 flew over 1200 miles

Posted on April 7, 2011 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

The Turbine Zenith 701 (742DE) flew over 1200 miles at 300’ over Lake Livingston last week in an attempt to locate a lost fisherman. We unfortunately did not save a life this time but I was sure impressed with the utility of the 701 to perform this type of search. It was gratifying to be able to help and I would recommend that all of you that have 701/750 consider letting local law enforcement know if you have time to volunteer.

Way to go Scott, it's not easy to win one award not alone two. If and when I wind up in Texas again I will make it a point to land on your strip and look at these butifull birds.

Scott---We talked a while back about your ti firewall. I don't know if you've seen this on ebay, I ordered one. With your setup and the price on these you could make a little on firewalls for planes. They're accepting offers and if you bought the lot you could probably get them for about a quarter of their worth. Plus, they're in fort worth.--ben

Scott, the price is $23,500 and that includes engine mount, cowling and a bunch of other firewall forward stuff, some of it quite valuable. Reason for sale: sold my airframe.

Scott, have the main gear off, was planning to drive thursday night to East Texas and possibly come by your shop on Friday 1/21 for main gear adjustment. Does that work for you ? My camp is at Woodville.

hello scott, thank you for answering my email. i am very interested in possibly getting some prints of the driveshaft setup , so i might be able to have one made here. i also noticed that you changed drive setups with the new turbine engine , i believe that to be a newer jfs 100 , if i am successful in getting this engine running , i would like to put it in a 750 zodiac. john kreeger.
