Faced with stormy weather conditions, the organisers of the Brest Atlantiques race have decided to postpone the start, initially scheduled for Sunday, November 3 at 13:02.

Build It. Fly It. FASTER!
Now is a great time to get started building your very own Zenith kit aircraft project. With summer behind us, fall and winter is the best time to start building a kit.
Zenith Aircraft kits, whether the sleek low-wing Zenith CH 650 or the high-wing Zenith CH 750 series, continue to represent exceptional value. The standard kits include many pre-drilled holes (thanks for CNC fabrication technology), factory-finished wing spars, and all hardware required to assemble the entire airframe.
