Hi Everyone,

I'm starting to make plans for this years trip to Oshkosh and am looking for information about Zenith-related events so I can make sure to be there when they happen!

Also, informally, I would be interested in meeting up with other folks who are building/flying 601 or 650s. 

Has any event information been made public yet?

My wife and I are considering making the trip from northern California in our recently.completed 601. I have never been before and am curious about all of the details. I too would love to meet up with other 601/650 builders.

My wife and I are considering flying our 2 year old 650 into Oshkosh this year as well. We are in eastern Nebraska and have 170 hours on N650SJ.

I trust the airplane more than I trust my 2 years of piloting. 

Working already on route, fuel and landing NOTAMs by planning route and looking at last year's publications.

My experience by driving and then watching landings is arrive on Saturday as Sunday is super busy (crazy).

Would be fun to meet other Zenith flyers.


It is a ways off, but I plan to attend the Pietenpol  flyin the weekend before Oshkosh, Brodhead WI and then drive up to Airventure for at least one day. We have a small summer home In Kenosha County WI about 2.5 hour drive from Oshkosh. I really need to see first hand the EFIS and AHRS, and the transponder requirement being used in various planes so I have a better idea for my panel. That could end up costing more than the plane.


Typically, there is a Zenith Builders and Flyers banquet at the Elk's Club on Thursday night that is organized by Joe Scheibinger.  Hopefully, he will do this again this year and well in-advance, he posts an announcement with the details on the Forums.

ZAC also usually presents some seminars during AirVenture.

The ZAC display is quite close to aircraft parking and typically Zenith aircraft are parked near the ZAC display, so it's a natural meeting-up place for builders and flyers.

I'm planning on attending AirVenture (driving) and camping in Camp Scholler.
