I've fixed My Builder's Log

Some of you have noticed and asked me about the missing pages from my log. A while again this site got hacked and I basically had to delete it, and rebuild it. In that process some of the log pages got lost. I still had the pictures, so I just had to spend the time to re-build those lost pages. Well, I did that this morning. So now all of the pages work and it is now a complete log. Visit the log here.

Introducing Flightline Interiors!

I'm really excited to introduce to you our newest advertiser-Flightline Interiors. I was so happy with the custom Blue Angels seats and interior pieces that they made for my airplane, that I am happy to recommend them to you.

Flightline has been making seats and interiors for the Vans RV's for years. They are now expanding their professional services to Zenith and other kitplanes.

They made the seats and some other custom interior pieces for my Zenith Cruzer, and they can make any custom interior pieces you might be looking for like seats and control stick boots.

Take a look at their website at www.flightlineinteriors.com and give Abby a call and see what they can do for you!

PS: they are in the process of updating their website to include kitplanes other than RV's!

KITPLANES Features Zenith Aircraft

ZenithOwner.comZenith 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.

Welcome MWFly

MWfly Engine

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.

In 2011 , 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 2013, on the request of a Russian client, we started the development of the B25 engine that has quickly become our best-selling product. Since 2011 the know-how of MWfly has grown exponentially and the progress made by MWfly in the areas of the production, design and assembly phases has elevated the quality of today's product.

To date more than 100 engines have been produced, 10 have been used for R&D and marketing activities the rest have been sold.

Please visit their website by clicking on the ad on the right, or directly by clicking here: www.mwflyna.com

For lots of photos of installed engines, visit this page of their website.
