Building an Airplane as a School Project: Tehachapi Pilots with Oak Valley Charter Schools

The Tehachapi Society of Pilots of California has partnered with Oak Valley Charter Schools to build an airplane with high school students (providing successful students with scholastic credit).

The Tehachapi Society of Pilots, a chapter of the California Pilots Association, has provided the funding for the Zenith CH 750 Cruzer kit, and will provide experienced A&P mechanics and kit builders to mentor the students in building the Zenith.

Tehachapi is located in California in the southern part of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, about 2 hours north of Los Angeles by car.

What a wonderful opportunity for the high schools students! We'll plan to post update and photos as this project progresses.

The "One Week Wonder" Zenith CH 750 Cruzer that was built in 7 days at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014.

Building an airplane is the ultimate project for groups, individuals and clubs.

Zenith Aircraft Company supplies great designs, shipped as complete kits (with advanced final hole size match drilled parts) that are easy, simple and fun to build.
