Zenith Aircraft Show - Fly Your Zenith To Open Hangar Days 2016 and Participate!

Fly-in to show off your Zenith during the 25th Annual Open Hangar Days at the Zenith factory in Mexico, Missouri and register your plane to be judged in the Zenith Aircraft Show (like a car show, but with Zenith airplanes) sponsored by Matco Mfg. The contest will start at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning and end at 3:00 p.m.

The Zenith Aircraft Show is a fun event for everyone to participate in and Matco Mfg is providing an award plaque for each of the following judged categories:

  • Newest Build Completion - Built and registered within last year.
  • Farthest Distance - Flown in from the farthest away from Zenith. 
  • Zenith Low-Wing - Chosen as best low-wing by judges.
  • Zenith High-Wing - Chosen as best high-wing by judges.
  • People's Choice Award - Overall Public Judged Winner

Matco Mfg is also providing $50 gift certificates to the following sub-categories judged:

  • Engine of Choice -  Best displayed engine.
  • Oldest Airplane - Oldest built and registered aircraft in the contest.
  • Most Hours Flown - Aircraft with the most flying hours logged.
  • Most Hours Spent Building - Aircraft with the most building hours logged. 

Everyone that registers for the Zenith Aircraft Show will receive a Zenith certificate of participation.

The registration booth will be located in the gazebo just outside of the Zenith Aircraft hangar. There will be registration forms available for each of the activities (STOL Competition, Flour Bombing Contest, Cleco Contest, and the Zenith Aircraft Show - like a car show but with airplanes) taking place throughout the 2016 Open Hangar Days event. Registration begins at the event for the Zenith Aircraft Show on Friday morning (8:00 am) and will end Saturday (9:00 am).

Pre-registration is encouraged, if you would like to register before the event, please email Rebecca Riley at Rebecca@zenithair.com and a registration form will be sent to you to fill out and return prior to the event. 

We encourage all who are flying their Zenith aircraft to the event to participate in this fun activity! Check out past photos of the Open Hangar event. We looking forward to seeing everyone at the event on Friday, September 23 & Saturday, September 24, 2016.
