Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
We spoke with so many of you both at the Zenith Workshops and at their Annual Open Hangar Day this year that I wanted to update you with what’s happening with our New Builder Assist Center.
It’s been unusually cold here in Missouri, home of Zenith Aircraft. The temperature this past weekend was 1 with the high of 12. Not exactly the best weather to be out in the garage building on your project.
Until now the only choices for builders during cold weather was to spend more money to warm your workshop, wait for warmer weather, or spend more money shipping your project somewhere far, far, away from the Zenith factory to work on your project.
As of January all of that will change.
First of all, American Light Sport Aircrafters (ALSA, that’s us) will open the doors to our facility here in Mexico, near the Zenith Factory.
For those of you whom we have not had the pleasure of meeting, let me just take a moment to tell you about us. Besides being business owners, we are pilots, and Zenith CH 750 builders ourselves, who will be offering services aimed specifically at the Zenith Aircraft line of airplanes, with emphasis on the CH 750, but we will be glad to offer space in our workshop to those working on other Zenith models.
Our facility is a spacious, nicely equipped shop that is both heated and air conditioned making it an ideal place to work on your project at any time of the year regardless of the weather. And Mexico, MO is located just off of I-70 between St Louis and Kansas City making it an easy choice if driving or flying in commercially. Another real convenience of our location is the proximity to the Zenith Factory which means easy access to parts and NO SHIPPING COSTS for you to get your kit to us from Zenith.
ALSA will offer builder assist on many levels, from space for those who just need a place and tools to work with, or some hands on help for those who would like assistance completing a component part, or the entire project. In addition we will be a supplier of Zenith Quick Build Kits, and help with Quick Build Components.
Continue to watch for more posts announcing our opening and a more complete list of services that we will be offering.
We will open officially this January 2011 and currently have space available for builder’s projects. Contact us soon to reserve your space.
