Video Clips

Video Clips from around the world on building and flying the Zodiac:


RAAC Recreational Flyer, Cover, March - April 2007 Recreational Flyer, the magazine of the Recreational Aircraft Assoc. of Canada, March - April 2007 issue, cover story: "Wings for the People: Chris Heintz' Superb Zodiac" by Gary Wolf, pages 22 - 29. "The Zenith Zodiac was introduced in 1984, and 25 years later is still selling strongly... a simple all-metal plane that provides good performance is perennially appealing to builders and pilots."
Rick Tedford and his Zodiac XL Rick Tedford and his Zodiac XL (in North Bay, Ontario) was featured in the March - April 2007 issue of Recreational Flyer magazine.  Rick was one of the first builders of the Zodiac XL model, with the first flight in November 2003, powered by a Jabiru 3300 engine:

"Cruise is 2,750  to 2,900 rpm and indicated airspeed is 120 to 135 mph.  The Jabiru 3300 can run all day at 2900 rpm.  The maximum straight and level speed is 155 indicated at 3200 rpm, and this was confirmed last week with a GPS."

"From an ergonomic point of view this is the most comfortable aircraft I have ever flown.  There is plenty of storage space... and the wing [baggage] lockers will hold 40 lbs each..."

J. Ernie Weightman and his Zodiac CH 601 J. Ernie Weightman's Zodiac CH 601 was also featured in the March - April 2007 issue of Recreational Flyer magazine:  "The majority of my flying is in and out of grass strips and the taildragger configuration has served very well.  The side slip ability of the design, coupled with seemingly unlimited rudder authority has provided access to some very limited strips."

new European ZODIAC XL May 2007: The new European ZODIAC XL, now manufactured and supported by Zenair, introduces some new and lighter features for the European market.
