Got a confirmation e-mail today that my Zenair 750 STOL plans are on their way from the Zenair factory in Mexico, Missouri. Despite being a company founded in Canada, all plans come from the U.S. office of Zenair as they are numbered and serialised for each builder (makes sense really, the U.S. is a huge market for homebuilts.) It's also great way for the designer to keep track of customers and provide support.
With some luck, I should have them in my hands in 5 to 7 business days!
In my previous post "Time to get back at it" I mentioned spending a day in July at the Zenair Open Hanger day in Midland, where I met fellow Corvair engine builders John from nearby Angus and Jeff Moores of Newfoundland.
Here are a couple more pictures from that day that Jeff's wife was kind enough to send me.
Hoping to get back into the shop this week. More rivets to drill on the salvaged wing. Learn I will..... learn :)
