Email Excerpt...

To the Great Folks at Zenith:

My wife and I very much enjoyed seeing the "troops" at your display area at Oshkosh. The dinner was a great opportunity for all of us to get together. It is a most welcome, enjoyable event. It was a great addition to our experience. It is a personal touch that is missed by most manufacturers.

Having been parked a little remote out by the Ultralights, it was a little hard for people to find us. But a lot of builders and non-builders stopped by the airplane for a look. A few even tried out the cockpit for size and comfort.

I hope to be able to make the trip out from Connecticut next year to Oshkosh again, or I might just skip it and go to the Open Hanger in Mexico, Missouri instead. Either will be fun, I expect.

EAA AIRVENTURE OSHKOSH is the world's largest sport aviation event, annually drawing more than 800,000 people and 11,000 airplanes to Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  As usual, Zenith Aircraft Company was displaying its line of kit aircraft at the week-long convention.  Company staff was available to answer questions, and designer Chris Heintz was at the Zenith Aircraft pavilion throughout the week. 

Once again, we were located in the North Aircraft Display area (booths #424, 425, 430 & 431):
