Welcome to my airplane builder’s-log website. I am building a Zenith 601XL from a complete kit delivered in February, 2007. I originally wanted to build a Cozy. But I decided I’d rather spend my retirement flying than building, so I set my sights on the RV-9A. Then I decided that light sport was the way to go. In the Fall 2006 time-frame the Zenair 601XL looked to me to offer the best combination of performance, building ease, proven design, and value. I visited the factory in Mexico, MO for a demo flight and committed to the 601XL. I believe that Zenith Aircraft offer the best combination of performance and value in the homebuilt light sport market.

I have made little building progress in the past 10 years. In August 2021 I concluded that I was just too old to finish this project, so I decided to put the project up for sale. I will not make any further updates to this builder's log.
