Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
If anyone needs some motivation to get their project done in the next year - It's the Zenith Homecoming and Open House!
What a fantastic weekend:
Excellent panel discussions and presentations - Earl Downs is very good.
Very fun discussing my plane with new builders.
One on one discussion time with experts in the field - Corvair and oil analysis Larry Nelson and WW
Learned a lot discussing issues with other pilots that flew in (cooling efficiency with my cowling).
Great food and camaraderie.
I wanted to post this discussion to thank Zenith for the great weekend and let everyone know what a great resource this was. The Zenith people really are a family and Homecoming is really the right way to say it.
Thanks so much for flying in to our Homecoming event! We really enjoyed putting the event together and hosting it, and thank everyone who participated and helped out, as well as everyone who took time to visit.
Please let us know how we can improve the Zenith Homecoming event next year (we've already put in the order for better weather for all those of you flying in). Any new speakers or vendors you'd like to see? Please share ideas and constructive criticism to help us make this a better event for all visitors and participants.
I would also like to thank Zenith, not only for the great weekend at the fly-in, but also for all the rest of the year. I purchased my first 750 kit 7/2017 at 68 years of age with zero building experience (except the rudder class) and they have always been
there for me, no matter who answered the phone. I was overwhelmed a few times with my build and between Zenith, the people on this forum and some of the other vendors, I was able to complete the project and it flys great. I encourage anyone who has not been to the open hanger days to try and go next year. I liked building so much that I’m working on my second Zenith, still asking “dumb” questions and, as busy as Zenith is, they have always taken the time to help me. Oshkosh is great, but I talked to more people from Zenith, more Zenith pilots and vendors associated with Zenith at the fly-in than I ever did at Oshkosh. Talking to other builders I even learned that all my “dumb” questions weren’t as dumb as I thought. :-)
Well said Mark! Especially the "Zenith Family" part!

Glad you're home safe!
