The following is from AERO Magazine in Brazil which featured a ZODIAC CH 601-BR. This is a customized ZODIAC CH 601 UL with a slightly longer wingspan and small flaps to meet the Brazilian "ultralight" rules.


"The Zodiac CH 601-BR with engine Subaru EA81, customized in Brazil for the ultralight category, flies as a conventional airplane, with the advantage of lower operational costs. The Zodiac is a simple,
economic airplane and with excellent flight characteristics; ideal for transportation and leisure use. It can be powered from  65-hp to 115-hp, can be equipped for IFR, and as well as floats.

"Equipped with the NSI Subaru engine, the CH 601-BR has an empty weight of 200 kg, cruise speed of 193 km/h and a range of 611 kilometers."
