Hey Keith. Thanks for messaging me. I think that's a great idea. I will do my best to attend. I will be out of town for the first 2-3 weeks of September. I don't mind traveling, but I will be driving (Zenith is still being assembled).
Keith - I would be happy to get together with builders any time. Anchorage or Mat-su seems to be the central area but Kenai is not out of the question. I am still in Phase 1 testing for another 15 hours but my test area is very broad, anywhere within a 100 miles from Birchwood airport.
Keith, that would be interesting to meet up with other builders. Of course the greater ANC area or Kenai Peninsula would be convenient for some of us but there are others that are some distance away(like Kotzebue and FAI). Goes without saying that summer would be the best. Hope to have this 750 flying soon.
nice to meet you. As much as my son and I would enjoy meeting other Zenith builders, I don't see an opportunity anytime soon, unless it was in the Anchorage area. We have brunch at least once a month with local EAA chapter. There are several Zenith builders there as well.
By the way, which shipper are you using? I started with Lynden Transport, but now having second thoughts for shipping the fuselage and finishing kit.
Would be a blast to be able to attend but I currently am based out of Sequim WA and a trip to Kenai would be fun though a bit slow on the 801 that I have. I am planning to head up to Alaska next year with the 801 to hit my old stomping grounds in and around Fairbanks.
Wish you luck with the build and send pics as the project develops. Looking forward to hearing more about your progress.
