Happy Thanksgiving from the Zenith Aircraft family to yours!
Even during these unprecedented times, we have much to be thankful for. This season of Thanksgiving we once again thank all Zenith Aircraft builders and owners who continue to make Zenith Aircraft the number one light sport aircraft brand*, with thousands of Zenith kit airplane projects being completed in basements and garages by do-it-yourself (DIY) amateur kit aircraft builders across the country.
And of course, we are thankful to the entire Zenith Aircraft team for their dedication during these challenging times, allowing us to keep our doors open and continue to provide quality kits and service to the ever-growing number of customers across the country and around the world. It's our privilege to support Zenith builders as they pursue their dream of building and flying their own aircraft!
FACTORY TOUR VIDEO: Check out this insider's look at the Zenith kit aircraft production facilities and meet some of the dedicated Zenith staff that produce the aircraft parts and assemblies that make up the kits.
The Zenith kit aircraft factory will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holidays on November 26th & 27th, and we will re-open Monday, November 30.

Zenith Aircraft Company will be in Florida next week for Sun 'n Fun’s Holiday Flying Festival (and Car Show) to host its popular hands-on kit aircraft building workshop. The two-day workshop will be held December 3rd & 4th (immediately before Sun 'n Fun's Flying Festival), at the Buehler Hangar on the Sun 'n Fun Expo campus in Lakeland, Florida (with plenty of hangar space for adequate social distancing). Members of the Lakeland Aero Club have been building a Zenith CH 750 Cruzer kit airplane at the Buehler Hangar this past year (check out this video to learn more about this project).
Sun ‘n Fun’s Holiday Flying Festival and Car Show officially kicks off at 1 pm on Friday, December 4th, and runs through Saturday, December 5th. The highlight of the event includes a STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) competition on Saturday afternoon.
Come and watch Jon Humberd compete with his “Super 701” in the national STOL competition, as well as Viking Aircraft Engine's STOL CH 750 Super Duty (powered, of course, by the popular Viking Honda engine conversion). Other planned activities include airplane displays (with homebuilt / kit aircraft), aircraft camping, live music, and more!
