Design Goal

This site is dedicated to the design and production of the "ZoomAviation" aircraft. This site includes general aerospace references and engineering design data to assist in evaluation and education.

The design goal of the Z1 is to create a tandem two place low wing tricycle gear aircraft. A conventional gear version is also anticipated. The 100hp engine (VW or equivalent) and all metal construction allows the aircraft to meet the maximum allowed performance figures set by the FAA for Light Sport Aircraft (LSA).

ZoomAviation "Z1" 2 place Concept

(see details)

The construction methods and appearance are similar to the "Teenie", "Wind Wagon", and "Hummel" (see below). The Z1 is fundamentally a high performance two place robust "stretch" of these designs. For example the Hummel has a 24.5" width which is too small for taller adults so the "Skysaber" has a 30" interior width.
