Jon Croke is a member and a long-time builder and supporter of Zenith aircraft.  His HomebuiltHELP DVD's have proven to be invaluable to me and other builders of Zenith aircraft.  Jon started a free "Tip of the Week" YouTube series of homebuilding tips that has proven to be just as valuable as his DVD's!

After posting over 100 videos, he's now asking that those who find the tip series useful consider becoming a patron of his video series by donating to his Patreon campaign. This will allow him to continue the video tips at their present frequency of one per week.

Jon is not aware I was going to post this nor did he ask me, but I have enjoyed his tips and have learned so much I immediately donated to his Patreon campaign.  Speaking personally, and not representing Zenith Aircraft or the forums, please check-out this information and participate if you feel it is of value to you!

I’m in. I would not be as far along as I am without Jon.

I'm in too. 

Hi Jonathan,

AFAIK Jon is still doing HomebuiltHELP!  Just got a "Tip of the Week" the other day!

Why don't you look at his Member Profile here and you can get his phone number and call him.  Maybe he's having a server issue or something with his email?

I'll see if I can contact him, too, and see what's going on!


I contacted Jon and he said the email was working - the problem was simply due to a misspelled email address.


John you are 100% correct we need guys like Jon.
