You're invited to our 10th annual "Fly-In To Summer" Open Hangar Day and Builder Fly-In Gathering this Saturday! Join us at our annual fly-in at the Zenith Aircraft kit factory in Mexico, Missouri (centrally located in the United States) as we enter the summer flying season. This will be a fun gathering of Zenith builders and flyers, and is an informal grass-roots fly-in gathering open to all aviation enthusiasts. Share this event with your friends on Facebook.

Owners of completed Zenith aircraft are encouraged to fly-in for the morning and to show off their completed project to fellow builders. Please bring tie-downs for your aircraft if flying in (we will provide tie-down space and help facilitate ground transportation, if possible).

Hot lunch and refreshments will be available (from Steinman Catering) and we'll also have coffee available in the morning. See the planes, tour the kit aircraft factory, and meet with the Zenith staff. View photos from last year's event.

Come out to take a look at the popular high wing Zenith CH 750 Cruzer light sport aircraft (pictured below left). The Cruzer is the "on-airport" version of the popular Zenith STOL CH 750 "off-airport" light sport utility kit plane, famous for its roomy cabin with comfortable side-by-side seating and easy cabin access from both sides.  While influenced by its well-known STOL predecessors (the STOL CH 701, STOL CH 750 and the four-seat STOL CH 801 sport utility aircraft), the CH 750 Cruzer is an all-new design optimized as an economical cross-country cruiser for typical (airport) operations. For low wing enthusiasts, the Zenith CH 650 will also be on display.
Unlike the annual fall Open Hangar Days with scheduled workshops and seminars, dinner banquet and more, the June event is very informal. We'll be celebrating Zenith Aircraft Company's 25th anniversary on September 22 & 23, with two full days of activities this fall. Make plans to visit us for both events and make your hotel reservations now for the September event before they are all booked.

Attending the hands-on workshop at the Zenith Aircraft kit manufacturing factory in Mexico, Missouri, is the easiest way to get started on your very own airplane! Plan now to join us at an upcoming Spring workshop:
Zenith Aircraft Company's factory workshops
have become popular with sport aviation enthusiasts, giving them the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in building their own Zenith Aircraft kit plane. Participants get to actually start assembling kit parts under the direction and guidance of factory professionals, and "graduate" from the workshop upon completing construction of their own aircraft rudder tail section for one of Zenith Aircraft Company's popular kit aircraft designs, including the Zenith CH 650 cruiser or the high wing Zenith CH 750 series.

The factory workshops make an excellent getaway for you and your spouse or a friend! Spend a couple of days at the Zenith Aircraft factory and meet with fellow aviation enthusiasts - all while gaining valuable hands-on building skills.
