Here's a brief follow-up report of the 2019 Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, where we hosted, once again, the hands-on workshops during the four-day Expo. Watch the video:

As you can see in the above video, the first day was windy, the second day way stormy and rainy, and the third day was cold!

Despite that, we had a good time with the workshops and demo flights in the STOL CH 750 Super Duty. Thanks to our volunteer builders, Jim Rea and Ken and Sharlene Stapleton, who helped with the workshops (and the set-up)!

Proud workshop participants with their completed rudder assemblies:

On the last day we also hosted a "Kids Can Build" workshop specifically for youth, giving them the opportunity to build their own 3-hole binder from aluminum parts made in the Zenith Aircraft kit factory.

The three-hole binder kit requires the students to deasure, drill, file and rivet the binder together (following detailed assembly instructions), just like a full-size Zenith aircraft kit!

We flew the STOL CH 750 Super Duty to the event, flying 1,200 miles each way to attend, departing the Missouri factory in the snow! Here's a video from Roger of the flight to Sebring:

While we're happy to be home, we're already looking forward to our next trip back to Florida: Sun'n Fun is coming up soon in Lakeland, Florida, from April 2 - 7,....
