Zenith builder fly-in this weekend

The fifth annual “Fly in to Summer” Open Hangar Day and Fly-In Gathering at the Zenith Aircraft kit factory in central Missouri will be this Saturday, June 23. The informal grass-roots fly-in is open to all aviation enthusiasts: Come visit the factory, see the new Zenith demo planes, and meet with fellow builders and pilots.

In contrast to Zenith’s annual fall Open Hangar Day (with scheduled workshops and forums), the June event is very informal and unstructured: Owners of completed Zenith Aircraft are encouraged to fly-in to show off their completed projects to fellow builders, company officials said.

The Zenith Aircraft factory will be open from 8 am to 3 pm for self-guided factory tours, demonstrations, and more.

The local EAA chapter will provide a “wiener roast” lunch. Please bring tie-downs for your aircraft if flying in, and bring yourself a lawn chair if driving in.

All pilots and aviation enthusiasts are invited to drive or fly in to attend the ‘Fly In To Summer’ Zenith Open Hangar Day and Builder Gathering at Mexico Memorial Airport (MYJ) located in mid-Missouri. Zenith Aircraft Co. has been producing aircraft kits from its production facilities at the Mexico airport since 1992.
