KITPLANES Features Zenith Aircraft
Zenith Aircraft reaches "A Quarter Century of Excellence" as featured in KITPLANES magazine. Go Zenith!
In the November issue is a feature article about Zenith Aircraft and their 25 years of designing and selling aircraft kits.
I'm about to sit down with a nice cup of hot chocolate in my Zenith Cruzer mug, and enjoy a good read.
The article gives a short but interesting history of how Zenith "came to be" in the Mexico, MO area which I found to be interesting. Did you know that the factory is 18,000 sq. feet? Wow that's huge. For this article, LeRoy Cook visited the factory, snapped some amazing photos of all of Zenith's airplanes, and took a ride with Roger in the Cruzer and wrote a nice but short flight report.
Folks if you have been thinking of building a Zenith airplane, just jump in and do it! I'm currently building a Cruzer and it is such an enjoyable project. As with any airplane, there are challenges that keep your mind occupied for days and the feeling of accomplishment you get when it all 'clicks' and a solution pops into your head is simply amazing. Your airplane building journey will be the most rewarding project of your life! I'm so excited to fly my Cruzer soon.
Keith Crawford's facebook blog for his Cruzer build has been added to the Builder's List page. A direct link is here.
Please welcome MWfly Aeropower to our website and community. METALWORK was founded in 1994 by Guido Fantini and Stefano Marella-both graduates of the Milan Politecnico in Aerospace Engineering. The goal of the company was to produce an engine for the L.S.A. (Light Sport Aviation) market.
, MWfly started
manufacturing and selling the B22 MWfly engine and
at the same time MWfly was founded. The development
of the engine, however, did not end in 2011. With
feedback from users
and the market, the engine is improved in all areas,
further improving reliability and performance. In
on the request of a Russian client, we started the
development of the
that has quickly become our best-
To date more than 100 engines have been produced, 10 have been used for R&D and marketing activities the rest have been sold.
