ZODIAC XL Kit Eligible for Airworthiness Certification.

April 6, 2001: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) completed evaluation of the ZODIAC XL kit and determined that the kit, as evaluated, met the intent of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 21, Section 21.191(g).  The FAA notes that the evaluation should not be construed as meaning the kit is FAA CERTIFIED, CERTIFICATED, OR APPROVED. 


December 2000: CustomPlanes magazine flies the ZODIAC XL. Click here to read the flight report.

"It runs fast, carries a decent load and offers a comfortable cabin. As you might expect from a designer who has several certificated airplanes to his credit, it flies with no surprises, just as it should."
