Above, the first Corvair/Zenith mount on our own 601 XL in 2003. In the years since, we have made more than 250 of them for 601 and 650 builders. The design fits all models of the 601 series, and the 650, both tricycle and tailwheel aircraft. With our Mount, the weight and balance allows pilots to use the full gross weight and baggage capacity of the aircraft without violating the aft CG limit.
We build each Mount in our own shop. They are completely finished welded, powdercoated, and are ready to mount on the airplane. They’re Tig welded airtight and do not require any further internal corrosion protection. They’re made of 4130 aircraft tubing, and have been tested to G limits in excess of the airframe’s rating.
