2010 Zenith Aircraft Open Hangar Day... One Month Away

Our 19th annual Zenith Aircraft Company "Open Hangar Day and Builder Fly-In" is just one month away!

This year's events is scheduled for Saturday, September 18, 2010, at the factory located at Mexico Memorial Airport in Mexico, Missouri. All aviation enthusiasts, but especially builders and owners of Zenith Aircraft kit planes, are invited to drive or fly-in for the day. The Zenith Aircraft kit production facilities will be open for factory tours and Zenith's factory-demonstrator kit aircraft will be on display. Company staff will demonstrate kit production and fabrication techniques used in producing the all-metal kit aircraft parts made at the Zenith Aircraft factory.

Once again, we'll get started on Friday (September 17) afternoon with seminars. We're still working on the schedule but we plan to have some great new seminars of interest to builders, owners, and pilots. Back by popular demand, we've also scheduled an informal Zenith Builder Banquet (dinner and social gathering) on Friday evening. As in years past, we request that you RSVP for the Friday activities to help us accommodate all visitors (we'll have an RSVP form available as soon as we finalize the schedule).
Zenith Builders and Pilots: Owners of completed Zenith Aircraft are encouraged to fly-in for the activities and to show off their completed project to fellow builders (we will provide tie-down space and help facilitate ground transportation if possible). Let us know of any special needs or requirements.
If flying in, please bring your own aircraft tie-downs, especially if staying overnight. If flying in with your Zenith plane, please park your airplane as close to the Zenith factory as possible on Saturday. We'll try to position and group all Zeniths in front of the factory for the group photo at 10:30 am. If driving in, please bring yourself a folding (lawn) chair if possible. We will have chairs and picnic tables, but we sometimes run out...

There is no charge to attend the Open Hangar Day, with the exception of the cost for the Zenair Banquet (dinner) on Friday evening. Check the official website for the latest updates and schedule. We should be ready to publish a schedule by the end of this month. Please contact us if you have ideas, requests or capabilities to make the fall 2010 Open Hangar and Fly-In Gathering both a fun and educational event. Is there a special seminar, workshop or activity that you'd like us to hold? Let us know...
Note to builders: You can arrange to pick-up parts at the Open Hangar Day if the parts have been ordered, paid for and confirmed prior to the Open Hangar Day.

A note about accommodations: Local hotels fill up quickly as we near the Open Hangar date. Make your reservation now if you're planning to attend. There are more hotels in the general area, as well as camping sites. Click here for additional information on accommodations. We can help you to carpool if you are flying in and need a ride to and from a local hotel.

I look forward to seeing many of you next month!
