Sorry, life took over my build for a while. I think I'll skip on the tool for now.

Hi Carl

Welcome to the Zenith family! I see in your profile that you are planning for the Cruzer. The Cruzer is a fantastic plane! If you get up to the factory, a demo ride will be in order. My wife (Sharlene) and I were there in June for 3 days and we were VERY impressed! We found all the folks at Zenith to be warm, friendly and honest. Not once did we see any kind of sales pitch...their business model is one that relies on the reputation of the product they produce. They were having an Open House while we were there so we had a chance to speak with quite a few of their customers (builders). We were amazed to find that many of them were building their second or more Zenith kits...quite a feat for an industry that sees new companies come and go so frequently!

We are heading back up to the factory in September for their 25th anniversary bash and will be bringing back more of the CH 750 STOL kit. Hopefully, we will see you there!
