Updates from Zenith Aircraft Company

Zenith aircraft are designed to be quick and easy to build (with basic hand tools), while at the same time being affordable to build and to own. The brainchild of aeronautical engineer Chris Heintz, these popular all-metal light aircraft designs introduced the extensive use of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy in light aircraft construction (due to its excellent corrosion resistance and widespread availability) and were the first to widely use blind (pulled) rivets, making them easier and quicker to build.
Helping to make homebuilt aircraft ownership possible on nearly any budget, Zenith aircraft can be scratch-built (from plans-only), from component “buy-as-you-build” kits, or from complete kits. Advanced Quick-Build Kits (QBK) are also available.

Moller International/Freedom Motors May 2020 Newsletter

Freedom Motors’ plan to offer an exchange of its stock for Moller International stock is still under consideration. However, until the agreement between Freedom Motors and its joint venture partner in India is fully executed, a stock exchange would be premature.  As noted in a previous Newsletter, an agreement had been signed to begin volume engine production in India. That came to a standstill right before the Corona Virus Pandemic started when religious riots began in New Delhi due to India‘s new Citizenship Act that does not allow refugees of certain religion to seek out Indian Citizenship and people who do not have proper Citizenship identification should prove their status. Under the present circumstances, funds cannot be transferred nor can construction of facilities in India begin.
