Roy Phillips of Southern Australia Roy Phillips of Southern Australia:

"I have just completed my Zodiac CH 601 HD after five years building from scratch (plans-only). The first test flight was totally uneventful. The aircraft has absolutely no vices and is a dream to land.  It is a tail dragger with a Subaru EA81 engine and a 3 blade Powerfin 70" propeller.  It is an absolutely lovely aircraft."

Copperstate 2007 Lori and Glen West flew their Zodiac XL from Hurricane, Utah to attend the annual EAA Copperstate fly-in (Casa Grande, Arizona), flying over the Grand Canyon:

"The Zodiac flew great at gross weight - it had to carry the two of us and camping gear plus fuel to do it.
We had so much fun - smooth ride the whole way and we especially enjoyed the Zenith BBQ on Friday night.
We had a great time. The experience – priceless."
