Have you been dreaming of flying, but think it's beyond your reach--financially or from a piloting skill standpoint? In my opinion, this model airplane is the best option because it is newer, requires less maintenance, and is easier to fly. If you're a seasoned pilot and you're tired of flying high and fast, the 701 is the most fun flying machine! Take off in less than 200 feet and you can safely fly at 1,000 feet AGL (low and slow).
I've owned this 2011 Zenith 701 Sky Jeep airplane for 4 years, and I'm interested in sharing it with other flying enthusiasts. I'm using it to build hours toward the 1,500-hr. ATP cert. I may also begin to instruct for Sport Pilot rating, but that will be a few months down the road.
Notice in the images that the airplane has a BRS (Ballistic Recovery Systems) full airplane safety parachute. There are many other features that value this airplane more than an old Cessna or Piper, including the Rotax 912 ULS (100 Hp) engine, which has about 360 hours now. If you're looking for a glass cockpit, that adds a whole other dimension of cost. I've had good success with using the Merlin ADS-B with FlyQ, on my iPad. The partnership would also include a new set of prop blades and hub, for future backup. Maintenance is important, and I've developed numerous options and contacts to keep costs to a minimum. I've also added lights, the cover you see in the images and Sandia transponder. We may also share ownership of headsets, ADS-B and Garmin GPS.
