Update from Zenith Aircraft Company

Virtual Online Rudder Workshop Class!
Doing our part in helping to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we have changed the previously scheduled hands-on workshop at the Zenith Aircraft kit factory to a LIVE VIRTUAL WORKSHOP. So rather than having participants travel to the Zenith factory to build their rudder in the workshop class we will be shipping rudder kits to them (ahead of time, with the needed rudder assembly tools), and be broadcasting live interactive video of the build class so that participants can go through the entire rudder build experience!
