Learn about building your own light-sport aircraft and about the real advantages of owning and flying an airplane that you’ve built yourself. In the hands-on workshop process, participants tackle many activities including learning how to read drawings (blueprints) and work from assembly instructions (manuals). Learn the procedures for putting together an aircraft assembly, including drilling, de-burring and blind riveting. As part of the building process participants cut, file and fit the aluminum alloy (sheet metal) parts. During the 2-day workshop, participants actually construct a Zenith Aircraft rudder assembly from a standard kit. The workshops will be offered twice: Wednesday – Thursday and Friday – Saturday. Additionally, a free, one-hour, hands-on workshop seminar and demonstration will be held daily from 12:30-1:30 at the Zenith Aircraft workshop tent.
