Zodiac TD Takeoff and Landing Video Clip Video Clip: Flying a taildragger Zodiac on a grass field

Steve Smith, from Santa Rosa, California, has logged more than 230 flight hours over last eight months in his Zodiac XL.

"Today I flew my Zodiac XL round-trip to Lakeview Oregon which is just across the border from the north-east corner of California.  The flight was 721 miles and the trip was a total of 9 hours.  I landed at 15 airports along the way.  Many were remote and clearly see very little use.  I just enjoy the challenge of approaching and landing at an airport that is new to me.  I liked all of today's airports but my favorite was in Quincy.  The town is deep in a valley and the airport's approach is just a little bit challenging...

"I flew over lots of snow-covered peaks, some almost 7,000 feet.  It was a warm day. Spring has sprung; I have the bugs on the canopy to prove it.
Flying route

"This screen shot below is from the latest version of my airplane tracking software.  The green line is my intended route and the blue one is my actual route.  This kind of data is available in real time on my web site because the plane transmits its location very 10 seconds to my web server on the ground. You can follow the flyable flight path on Google Earth..."

"The Zenith literature package is easily the most complete package I have received from any light aviation company, and I’ve seen many other good ones among the hundreds I have studied. Lots and lots of information is presented with some lovely graphics. The literature alone is impressive, but the volume of information will keep you reading for hours. You can get a good idea of what you're buying without ever leaving your chair."
