Event Description

Zenith Aircraft is returning to the 2019 DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase: November 14 - 16 in DeLand, Florida.

Sign up now for the Zenith Workshop in DeLand

Workshop space is limited, and prior registration is required. Call Zenith for details or with questions.

Zenith Aircraft Company's factory workshops have become popular with sport aviation enthusiasts, giving them the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in building their own Zenith Aircraft kit plane.

Starting on Thursday morning, November 14, Zenith staff and volunteers will provide an overview of the fuselage / cabin assembly of the all-metal STOL CH 750 Super Duty aircraft kit, putting together the entire fuselage to demonstrate the ease of assembly made possible with final hole size match-drilled assemblies. Visitors are welcome to observe and participate in the fuselage assembly demonstration, learning about assembly techniques and required tools and skills.

The hands-on rudder workshop begins on Friday (November 15) and runs until Saturday morning (November 16). Each participant builds and assembles their own Zenith aircraft rudder tail section from a standard kit.

Participants "graduate" from the workshop upon completing construction of their own aircraft rudder tail section for one of Zenith Aircraft Company's popular kit aircraft designs, including the popular new Zenith CH 750 series or the sleek CH 650 cruiser.

Come out to the DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase and meet with Jon Humberd and check out his Super 701 (powered by a 130-hp UL350iS engine). See Jon demonstrate the airplane's STOL performance daily at 4 pm.

Come by the Zenith Aircraft booth and workshop tent to meet with Amy and Herman Eshuis of Wheels and Wings, which offers professional builder assistance to Zenith builders in Edgewater, Florida (just a few miles from DeLand).

While most Zenith builders don't need outside professional assistance to assemble their own aircraft, for some it is a valuable service to help them realize their dream of building and flying their very own airplane! Whether you don't have the space or the time to build, or if your existing project is stalled, Herman of Wheels & Wings may be able to help you. Call Herman at 386-690-4239 to discuss your project.

William Wynne will be presenting a one-day "Corvair College" at the DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase on Thursday, November 14, 2019. Corvair auto engines are popular with many Zenith builders who convert their own engine using Wynne's instructions:

Also at the DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase:

NEW THIS YEAR at the 2019 DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase is a STOL EXHIBITION!
What's that? Simple... it's a daily STOL “Demonstration” of each aircraft’s capabilities as Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) aircraft. Mind you, this is NOT a competition… but don’t tell the aircraft (or their pilots) that!

Jon Humberd plans to fly his "Super 701" (a Zenith STOL CH 701 with a 130-hp UL Power engine) in the STOL Exhibition, as well as Jan Eggenfellner with his Viking (Honda) turbo powered STOL CH 750 Super Duty:
