Aviation enthusiasts, especially fans of the popular Chris Heintz designs, are invited to the Zenair Open Hangar Day and Builder Gathering scheduled for Saturday, June 11, 2011, at Huronia Airport in Midland, Ontario, Canada.
Visitors are invited to fly or drive in to visit “the original” Zenair Ltd. light aircraft factory, which designer Chris Heintz founded in 1974. Zenair Ltd. manufactures all-metal light aircraft and kits, as well as a full line of light aircraft floats and amphibious floats. This is an informal grass-roots fly-in gathering open to all builders, flyers, and aviation enthusiasts, and owners of Chris Heintz designs are encouraged to fly-in for the activities and to show off their completed project to fellow builders and pilots, according to company officials.
For more information, call Anita at Zenair at 705-526-2871. For directions and info on the airport see HuroniaAirport.com. John Smith, Huronia Airport’s manager, is currently building his own STOL CH 750 light sport utility kit plane, the most recent Chris Heintz design, company officials noted.
