Zenith Open Hangar Event Set for September

Zenith Aircraft Company will celebrate its 20th anniversary at an Open Hangar Day and Builder Fly-In gathering on Friday and Saturday, September 21 and 22, in Mexico, Missouri. Rod Hightower, president and CEO of EAA, will be the special guest at a banquet on Friday.

Many seminars and workshops on various topics will be held over the two-day event. Last year's seminars covered subjects such as aircraft weight and balance, avionics (both Dynon and Garmin), engines (Jabiru, UL Power, Corvair, Viking) and EAA. Again this year, aviation suppliers (of particular interest to Zenith kit plane builders) will display products, and Zenith will hold hands-on workshops on kit aircraft assembly and maintenance.

Seminars will begin on Friday afternoon at the Mexico Airport. Several hundred participants are expected, mainly existing and new Zenith Aircraft builders and owners, along with those who may be interested in building a Zenith design. There is no cost to attend.
