First Flight From the zenith.aero online community for builders and flyers:

First Flight Report:
"On Friday Morning February 11, 2011 at about 7:15 AM I took off for the first time in N949TF from St. Louis Downtown Airport (KCPS) using runway 12R.  My intent was to do a fast taxi, liftoff and touchdown and then go back for the actual takeoff.  Had a light tail/crosswind and when I lifted of I was uncomfortable with the drift and just firewalled it and climbed out.  Flew for between 45 min and an hour and the first landing was very nice. Tim Finley"

Brent Battles with his Zodiac:
"My Zodiac continues to perform perfectly after 620 hours, 1,088 landings, and having flown 214 different passengers not counting repeats. I wish I could rationalize building another Zodiac but I'm too happy with my faithful friend."

"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."
