Zenith Open Hangar Days


You’re invited! Join Zenith Aircraft Company at the Open Hangar Days and Fly-In at the kit factory in Mexico, Missouri on September 22 & 23!  All aviation enthusiasts are invited to drive or fly-in for the activities. Starting on Friday morning there are two full days of activities planned. Come for the free educational seminars on building and flying your own airplane, and learn about new avionics and engine technology for sport aircraft.

This is a great time to visit the factory and see where Zenith aircraft kits are made, to meet the factory staff, and to get together with fellow pilots, builders and enthusiasts.

Starting on Friday morning, they have a full day of educational seminars of interest to all current and future Zenith builders and pilots!

Friday evening visitors are invited for great food and camaraderie at the Zenith Banquet (at the Mexico Elks Lodge right next to the airport). They’ll have an interesting program with special guests. Purchase your advance tickets now for the Zenith banquet. Great prizes to be awarded at the Zenith banquet, including gift certificates from Dynon Avionics worth $2,500!

On Saturday, September 23, the Zenith Aircraft kit production facilities will be open for factory tours and Zenith’s factory demonstrator airplanes will be on display – both on the ground and in the air! Company staff will demonstrate kit production and fabrication techniques used in producing the all-metal kit aircraft parts made at the Zenith Aircraft factory.

On Saturday afternoon we’ll have Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) flying demonstrations as well as a Zenith aircraft show (with lots of awards!) with a planned flight parade!

Hands-on building project: As in past years, we’ll offer a fun hands-on project for visitors to build, demonstrating the assembly of the CNC pre-formed and cut aluminum kit parts. Come and build your own project inside the Zenith Aircraft factory.
