  •  The CH601 XL has had a trail of problems... (2+ / 0-)

    and 7 fatal crashes (see Wiki article outlining the FAA and company position)

    I cannot fault the FAA (and the EAA) for their reaction. However, I would like to point out that the XL has a completely different, new, wing to the HDS ('Heavy Duty Sportwing'). The XL also has the fuel tanks moved from the fuselage to the wings, which cannot have helped.

    Would I be happy in a Zenair? A HDS - yes.....a XL - absolutely not!
