World’s greatest aviation celebration starts Monday

The world’s greatest aviation celebration starts next week! EAA Oshkosh AirVenture is the place for all things aviation for seven days starting on Monday! Whether you’re a current builder or owner, or just looking at starting on your own project, there is always something for Zenith Aircraft builders and flyers at Oshkosh! As usual, we have many activities during the week. Randy Shannon’s STOL CH 750 Super Duty, pictured above, will be at the Zenith Aircraft display in the Homebuilt / North Aircraft Display area at the beginning of AirVenture next week. Watch the video to see more about this incredible airplane and to learn why Randy says: “This is just a great airplane! I really love it.”

If you haven’t seen it yet, watch the Oshkosh 2021 preview video with Zenith Aircraft’s Sebastien Heintz and Roger Dubbert as they take you flying in the STOL CH 750 Super Duty sport utility kit aircraft to discuss the planned Zenith activities at the upcoming Oshkosh fly-in convention.
Visit the Zenith Aircraft display (#610 & 611) to see the Zenith planes and meet the staff. We’re located just south of the EAA Aeroplane Hangar, where we will once again host daily hands-on kit aircraft building demonstrations, showcasing the latest Zenith aircraft kit innovations that make Zenith kits easier and quicker to build.

Come by and experience first hand how easy it is to put together an assembly that is supplied final hole size match drilled! While at Oshkosh you can even start to build your own Zenith rudder during the AirVenture week. Availability is very limited but contact us if interested. If you’re already a Zenith builder come by the Zenith workshop in the AeroPlane Hangar to learn and to volunteer some time during the week demonstrating basic kit assembly and sharing your experiences with potential new builders!

Zenith Banquet at Oshkosh You won’t want to miss the annual Zenith banquet at Oshkosh for and about Zenith builders, owners and enthusiasts! This year’s event will honor designer Chris Heintz. The annual banquet will once again be held at the Elks Lodge in Oshkosh on Thursday, July 29th. The bar will open at 5:30 pm and dinner starts at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available for $24 per person at the door. Please RSVP to help us accommodate everyone. There will be many door prizes!
