About this event
Zenith Aircraft Tour - Mexico MO (PCA Columbia Group)
DATE: 18 July 2020
MEETING LOCATION: Boone County Fire Protection District HQ, 2201 I-70 Drive Northwest (Northwest side of Columbia, MO)
MEETING TIME: 9:30AM
It’s been six years since we made the run to Mexico, Missouri to see the magic that Porschephile Sebastian Heintz and the crew at Zenith Aircraft have been turning out for sport aircraft enthusiasts. Zenith Aircraft manufactures sport aircraft kits which pilots can assemble to build their own light, two-place sport aircraft. Zenith makes a couple different models of light aircraft kits which are shipped around the world for the enjoyment of private pilots.
Mid-Missouri members are making a return visit to Zenith on July 18th to see what’s new in the sports flying world. Zenith has recently upgraded it’s manufacturing equipment to allow it to turn sheet aircraft aluminum into easily assembled pieces that become a nimble aircraft for fun flying.
Columbia Porsche Group members will gather at the Boone County Fire Protection District headquarters at 2201 I-70 Drive Northwest on the northwest side of Columbia, MO for a driver’s meeting, the necessary paperwork and waiver signing and instructions before hitting the road at 9:30 a.m for the drive over the winding roads of central Missouri to the Zenith Aircraft facility at the Mexico, MO Memorial Airport with the goal to arrive at Zenith shortly before noon.
After the tour, everyone is invited to head down the street to the Mexico Elks Lodge to enjoy the Elk’s Charity Car Show sponsored by Graf & Sons Sporting Goods and Shoot- ing Supplies. The Car Show features classic American cars, trucks, hot rods and motor- cycles. The BBQ and beverages will be available for purchase from the Elk’s Charities staff. All proceeds from the car show will support the Elk’s charity work throughout Missouri.
