Group Build: Zenith Aircraft Kit Airplane

EAA Chapter 40 (San Fernando Valley, California) recently got started building their Zenith CH 750 Cruzer airplane. The airplane is being built from a Zenith kit together with area youth and volunteer mentors. EAA Chapter 40's Bill Berle explained: "Well, after a bunch of unexpected delays and pandemic-related bumps in the road, our Zenith Cruzer build began Saturday… and it was a complete HOME RUN success. ...We had a group of a dozen kids and their parents come out to start the first wing trial assembly. The fantastic part is that we met the very first goal perfectly – by the end of the first three-hour session, the kids were holding a clecoed wing skeleton up above their heads smiling, and it looked like an airplane wing.
"We’re off to a fantastic start, and we hope you’re as thrilled with us as we are with the Cruzer and with Zenith Aircraft."
