ZoomAviation Details

The design goal of the "Z1" is to create a tandem two place low wing tricycle gear aircraft. The 100hp engine and all metal construction allows the aircraft to meet the maximum allowed performance figures set by the FAA for Light Sport Aircraft.

The construction methods and appearance are similar to the "Teenie" and "Hummel". It is fundamentally a high performance two place "stretch" design.
