Welcome to my HomeBuild (experimental) aircraft Web site dedicated to forgotten aircraft Zodiac CH-640.

The CH-640 is a conventional four-seater, with a 2+2 seating configuration, low-wing, all-metal aircraft design. The design features, a fixed tricycle landing gear, large dual gull-wing doors, a wing span of 31.5 feet and an overall length of 23 feet. The prototype aircraft is powered by a 180-hp Lycoming O-360 engine.
Chris Heintz used the FAA-certificated Zenith CH 2000 as the basic platform for this design since the aircraft already boasted a huge cabin area, and the type-certificated design could easily be "stretched" into a four- seater. Starting with a basic CH 2000 fuselage assembly, the CH 640 started to take shape by "stretching" the cabin area and adding the rear seat. New wings and horizontal tail sections were also developed; the firewall-forward side was borrowed from the Heintz’ STOL CH 801 design which utilizes the same engine (source: www.zenair640.info)

I have only blueprints and I will build my aircraft from scratch. I've bought the plans from Zenair Ltd. (Canada) and will use raw materials which are available in Russia. For example, we don't have 6061T6 on our market, that's why I will use a local analog of 2024T3.

Please come back for my updates!
