CH601 Zodiac - Photo #1

Popular since 1984, the ZODIAC CH 601 HD is the updated model of the original ZODIAC CH 600, which was designed by Chris Heintz as a low-cost primary trainer aircraft. New improvements to this model include a wider 44-inch cabin and a larger rear baggage compartment. Standard equipment in the kit includes wing baggage lockers, hydraulic disk brakes, electric trim tab, tinted canopy, and much more. Designed to meet the requirements of the demanding sport pilot, the aircraft offers great performance and capabilities, and is easy-to-fly with pilot-friendly characteristics, including a low landing (stall) speed. The aircraft has excellent cross-country flying capability as well as short-field performance of well under a thousand feet
