American Light Sport Aircrafters to Open Near the Zenith Factory

Well I just wanted to keep everyone updated with all that has been happening here since we have announced that we are opening our new Builder Assist Center near the Zenith Factory in Mexico, MO.

As with building aircraft, there are a number of steps that must be completed in the correct order, and that is what we have been busy doing. Business license applications, tax id numbers, leases to sign, and inspectors at every turn. But all of them serve a purpose and that is to make certain that we have a safe, professional place for our customers to work.

Our goal at American Light Sport Aircrafters is to do just that. We want to provide an atmosphere where our builders will be comfortable working regardless of their skill level, or what the weather is doing outside.

So this week we have had equipment deliveries, and had visits from the building inspector, and the Dept of Public Safety. Everything is just about complete and we are spending our time finalizing many of those little details that will make your time in our facility safe and comfortable. And we are right on schedule for our planned opening early in January.

For more information regarding our services please visit our website at

Keep watching for additional updates or feel free to ask by emailing,, or calling 573-721-4400.

Thanks for all of your inquiries,

Bill Carter

Thanks for the comments and for your help.

None of this would be possible without Zenith, the best Kit Planes in the world.

Doug & Lori,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog. This speaks highly of your character to offer me help and assistance. You are very kind to do so and I offer the same to you. Although I don't know what I can do except that I will do my best to help promote your services whenever I can. I have heard nothing but good about your center and your work. I wish the best of luck to you also and I may take you up on your offer.

Best of luck with your rudder workshop in January.

If we ever get enough time we would love to visit your facilty there in California, and please stop to see us if you are ever in the area.

All the best,

Bill & Diane Carter
